    Data Exchange is a powerful neutral format you can use to store a subset of your design models in the cloud. Teams can easily use Data Exchange to share design data between Revit software, Rhino, Inventor software, Civil 3D software, and other authoring software through Autodesk Docs using connectors. This class will explore the capabilities of Dynamo and Grasshopper connectors to build interoperable workflows between applications and systems to share and receive graphical and metadata. You'll learn the step-by-step process of setting up connectors in Autodesk Construction Cloud, Revit, and Rhino. Using the connectors, users will be able to easily create, update, and manage data exchanges between authoring software to share the model geometry and property data. You can use Dynamo and Grasshopper Connector nodes to retrieve available data exchanges, receive and send data exchanges, and convert them to geometries and parameters via the DxData object.

    Key Learnings
