Get CAD file with REST API

Hi, I try to read my CAD file with REST API like localhost/.../CAD , it return like below. { "@odata.context": "">localhost/.../$metadata, "value": [ { "authoring_tool": "SolidWorks", "classification": "Mechanical/Part", "created_on": "2018-06-13T02:45:26", "description": "First CAD Docment", "generation": "1", "has_change_pending": "0", "id": "1260956E892E4879B93D6F64F8B683CC", "is_current": "1", "is_released": "0", "is_standard": "0", "is_template": "0", "keyed_name": "CAD01", "major_rev": "A", "modified_on": "2018-06-13T02:45:26", "name": "CAD01", "new_version": "1", "not_lockable": "0", "state": "Preliminary", "item_number": "CAD01" } ] } But i can't able to fetch the CAD file. How can i resolve this issue? Thanks & Regards, Sathishkumar C.
  • Hello, One of our Aras Labs engineers wrote a blog post recently that contains examples on how to perform various queries using the new REST API. It contains an example on how to get information about an Item property (the native_file property of the CAD ItemType) and how to get information about a relationship (the CADFiles relationship of the CAD ItemType). I hope these examples help. Chris

  • Thanks for your reply. I tried with the blog post which is mentioned by you. It doesn't return native file property.
  • Hello, The native_file property is an Item property of the File ItemType. The specific example included in the blog post does not use this property, but you can follow the same format for any Item property. The example below shows how you can use the REST API to search upon the native file property specifically. GET {base url}/CAD(‘F45F259F527942EB8A6C4011BC784EF0’)?$expand=native_file&$select=item_number Chris
