Users within Aurora have the ability to create assets. An asset is a file that was created for a specific design within Aurora. Assets are visual assets, such as screenshots and DXF files. For example, when a user takes a CAD screenshot in the CAD view (2D or 3D) or generates a layout DXF file, the asset (file) gets persisted and can be queried through the API. Please note that a user must request the asset in Aurora Design Mode (pictured) for the asset to be available via the API. This is needed to determine the appropriate camera angle (3D) or zoom level.
