Modelo Compatibility Functionality Update in November

As a well-known 3D platform, Modelo is committed to improving compatibility and supporting more 3D model formats. Today, I’m excited to announce the major improvements that users can upload the 3ds Max and Revit 2021 models to Modelo. You can view 3ds Max online now!

Modelo Supports 3ds Max Format Now! 

Since releasing, 3ds Max has won the favor of a large number of architects with its excellent modeling and rendering capabilities. Now you can view your 3ds Max models online anywhere via Modelo. Just drag and drop 3ds Max models to Modelo directly. The models and textures in your max file will be perfectly displayed online.

Revit 2021 Plugin is Ready!  

Modelo released the latest Revit plugin which supports Revit 2021. We have also improved the stability and upload speed of the plugin.

Minor Update

  • Modelo toolbox measure function adds the millimeter(mm) dimension.
  • Hyperlinks in Modelo comments become clickable 


  • Fix flip error issues for obj models
  • Fix the background name mismatch issue in KooRender
  • Fix the background lost issue in the Modelo offline executable file 

Adding voice over to your design in 3D

Modelo’s 3D comment feature has been one of the most popular functions since its inception.

People use it to create 3D presentations, drop 3D annotations, embed 3D experience on their homepage and curate spatial fly-through. It links with rendering settings, section cut, walk-through, and assets. In a way, you could say the 3D comment feature is at the center of all.

Today, we are very excited to announce a few updates to it. With the new 3D comment feature release, you could do the following things:

1.You could use an image attachment as a cover page for your presentation.

2.You could add promotional videos and play it with just a touch of the “SPACE” button.

3.Panorama is also supported as an attachment.

4.Last but not the least, you could add phone recorded voice-over to the 3D comment and now your clients could experience your design in 3D and listen to your explanations about the space at the same time.
