Creating an App for Autodesk App Exchange Part 1

Autodesk are running a Hackathon this month to encourage people to publish there apps onto the Autodesk apps exchange. Last year they ran a similar event which I wanted to take part in but did not find the time to, so this year i am determined to at least publish one basic app onto the app exchange.

To figure out what you have to do to bundle your app together to publish it onto the exchange first thing you need to do is check out the process required online at

Autodesk® Exchange Apps Developer Center

and in particular the section for Autocad Verticals which covers Civil3d.

Autodesk Exchange Apps - Information for AutoCAD and AutoCAD Vertical Developers

then you need to check out the couple of Autodesk DevTV videos recommended in the article. Here are  a couple of links to them on youtube that are viewable on your mobile device.

3. Select the Exchange Apps Developers link in the lower right hand corner.


4. Once logged in click “Publish a New Product” to start the publishing process
