Welcome to Smart 3D Web API, a RESTful web API developed by Hexagon PPM. These APIs provide web access to data associated to Intergraph Smart® 3D.
The Smart 3D Web API consists of two components:
The Smart 3D Web Server, which is the Internet Information Services (IIS) component for accepting incoming URL requests and returning the results.
The Smart 3D Service, which does the actual accessing of the Smart 3D database to process the URL requests.
The Smart 3D Service can run on the same computer as the Smart 3D Web Server or a separate computer. Because each Smart 3D Service can access only a single model, you need at least one Smart 3D Service instance per model being accessed. In addition, to increase throughput for heavier loads, you can define multiple Smart 3D Service instances per model. These services can be distributed across multiple computers. We recommend separate computers for the Web Server and the Service.
You must have Intergraph Smart API Manager installed and configured before you can register the Smart 3D Web API with Smart API Manager.
