What is an API?
An API (Application Program Interface) is the ability to connect to our software directly, without going through the user interface. Simply put, APIs allow users to submit some kind of input, perform an action, and return with a response.
Other industries have been taking advantage of APIs for quite some time. For example, flight comparison websites use APIs from a variety of flight providers to help you search for the best deal without having to visit each airline's website individually. SkyCiv API applies the same concept to the structural engineering context. With a single click, you can generate a model, run an analysis, design checks and respond with a simple pass/fail result, without the need for any visual or graphical user input.
APIs are driving our industry forward for faster and more efficient structural design.
Benefits of using an API
Say goodbye to repetitive and mundane tasks
Integrate with your current systems and applications to create a seamless workflows
API solutions can easily be modified and upgraded based on your needs and new technology
Build your own solutions that are specific to your company and needs - not relying on general use software.
Use a commercial product which has internal QA and testing processes
Access new features, products, design codes, and improvements at the time of release
Why Choosing SkyCiv Structural API?
Easy to get Started
Test your scripts quickly and easily using the SkyCiv API Sandbox. Paste your code on the left, and run the API. Your results will appear on the right hands screen. Serves as a great introduction to the input and output you send and receive. Not sure where to start? Load one of our sample scripts to see real examples of how to run analysis, design checks, wind load calculations and more from SkyCiv's API.
