If you’ve visited the Tandem website, this week, you may have seen a little footer saying “Unleash the power of digital twins with Tandem APIs | Now in Beta”.
This is interesting news for the many (100+, at the last count) developers using Forge to build digital twins. Those using Revit or IFC as a data-source will most probably find the possibility of building on Tandem to be of significant interest.
One that’s of particular interest to “hands-on” developers is the Tandem SDK test bed, an interactive environment that allows you to see what’s possible with the current API – using your own facilities.
I tried the test bed quickly with the NEST facility – this is the one that loaded by default for me when I logged in.
I won’t dig into the capabilities of the SDK today – many of which we’ve used in our Tandem-based version of Dasher, of course – as this post is more a quick “heads-up” for people that want to go and have a play for themselves. We will talk more about the Tandem API and SDK in due course, for sure.
