Reality Solutions SDK Developer Center

Help your customers quickly get their reality data into their Autodesk design and construction tools by including support for the industry’s most prolific point cloud format.

The Reality Solutions SDK gives your solution the ability to read in the spatial data, spherical range images, and other metadata in the RCP/RCS format. When your customer is ready to save their project from your solution, the SDK provides the ability to write out the RCP/RCS project. Avoid having to convert formats, eliminating hours of time from your customers’ workflows.

Add support for your reality-data format through our Capture Codec Kit (CCK). Any format can now be exported to the Autodesk point cloud format (RCP/RCS).
