In this post, we will explain the value of the real-time architectural plug-in for Revit in Modelo. The Modelo Revit exporter plug-in enables the user working in Revit to upload any 3D model they have open directly into a specified project and folder in Modelo within seconds. All of your materials associated with the 3D model such as project assets, views, scenes, layers and textures automatically upload into Modelo faster than anything else in the market, in a very seamless way.
At its core, Revit is designed for modeling, which is an individual behavior. The software is not meant for communication, collaboration, storage, management, or anything else besides 3D modeling. This type of behavior does not apply to the full start-to-finish collaborative process that makes up the design process.
Which brings us to ask the question, how do you like viewing 3D models in Revit? Do you ever feel the pain of waiting several minutes for your Revit model to load? Do you feel the pain of waiting as you spin your large model? What are the possibilities if you, as a designer, could spend less time waiting for a model to load and more time focusing on design? Why spend valuable time waiting when you can easily use Modelo to view your 3D model?
Modelo consolidates your file to the point where it is easily loaded and runs faster than any other software in the market. With the time it takes to load and view your 3D model in Revit, you and your team could have made 10 comments, dropped a few waypoints to create an animated walkthrough, marked-up the design, and emailed a URL link of one of your views with your client. All of this work and feedback is shared automatically in real-time to your team.
Modelo can be used at all stages of the design process. Say you are working on a 50-story building and you have the first story done in Revit. The typical process is to print that out, pin the views on the wall, call the team over and mark it up. Now you can export that first floor file with all the views to your team to then be commented on from anywhere, whether it be at their desk, from their phone or on an iPad. Feedback is delivered in a much faster way through the communication aspect of Modelo.
By using the Modelo Revit plug-in you automatically improve efficiency, improve your workflow, save time, and gain business innovation. From a Principal’s standpoint, what would this mean for your ROI? From a Designer’s standpoint, what would having more time to design and collaborate mean for the quality of your work? With Modelo you have unlimited possibilities. Upload your model from Revit to Modelo today and create a FREE forever account!
