OurBricks is a site for sharing 3D models and allows you to preview directly in your browser with WebGL.
The Team wanted to enable users to interact with the site through an API, so they added a few simple methods.

Search: you can retrieve the most recent models uploaded to the site, or search through the title, description and tags of models in their database. The results are presented in JSON format.
Upload: if you have an API key (they currently giving these out on
request), you can upload to the site on behalf of a user after authenticating with OAauth.

Plus for specialists…
The documentation for their API is here:
https://github.com/ourbricks/ourbricks-api-examples/wiki/API-Documentation
They have a sample plugin for Blender that allows you to import and export from OurBricks without leaving Blender:

This plays onto the idea of having a universal API that all 3Dapplications can speak.

OurBricks  is powered by Katalabs.
