Autodesk Forge is our collection of Application Program Interfaces (APIs) that we use to develop our own web services. As part of our Autodesk Forge efforts, we share those APIs (including documentation and code samples) with customers and 3rd party developers (the Forge community) that want to leverage years' worth of legacy and current data associated with projects.

GTP Services builds software that extends Autodesk Building Information Modeling (BIM) / Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) capabilities from the office to the fabrication shop and to the job site for all construction trade contractors. GTP Services built an application named STRATUS on the Forge platform. STRATUS extends the capabilities of BIM 360 Team/Docs with features related to prefabrication assemblies, planning, shop fabrication, field installation, and tracking.

STRATUS connects the office to the shop to the field, with order definitions, shop fabrication tools, and field installation and tracking tools, all leveraging the investment in BIM at the front end of the project. GTP provides dimensioning capabilities in STRATUS that eliminate 15% of detailing work adding dimensions for paper drawings. For example, TigerStop is an automated measurement tool for the shop, used to nest cuts from stock length materials such as a 20’ copper pipe. In addition to being a Forge developer, GTP is also a TigerStop reseller. STRATUS sends cut lists for hanger components, conduit, pipe, and duct accessories directly to the TigerStop tool in the shop. The time savings for implementing STRATUS and TigerStop for cutting pipe have been reported as taking a per cut time of more than 1 minute down to about 5 seconds per cut.

Recently TigerStop mentioned Gulf Coast’s top-tier Mechanical Contractor, Gallo Mechanical's work on the Louisiana Superdome:

Of course, even though I am from New Orleans, my favorite part of the story was:

"Ray and his team are currently in talks with Todd Liebbe of GTP to implement STRATUS software on the Autodesk Forge platform."

Autodesk has always been an automation company, and today more than ever that means helping people make more things, better things, with less; more and better in terms of increasing efficiency, performance, quality, and innovation; less in terms of time, resources, and negative impacts (e.g., social, environmental). What GTP is able to do with Forge at TigerStop is a great example of this.

Cat-like software is alive in the lab.
