This months marks the two year anniversary of Modelo’s first product Modelo DAM (Digital Asset Management), which was launched out of beta at the AIA convention in April 2017.
In just two years DAM has achieved record-high usage, as of this month, we have:
Thanks to our strategic partners, our users and our community members, Modelo DAM has achieved the following progress:
Let our users tell their story of using Modelo and how it has improved their communication and workflow efficiency:
In just two years time Modelo has grown from a single-product start-up to a SaaS company that provides tailored and data-centric solutions serving the entire building cycle from design, construction, to facility managment. Our customer base has expanded into all stake-holders in the building industry from investment, design, construction, to facility magement, and our products cover integrated design asset management, to BIM, BI and AI technologies. Here is Modelo’s current product roadmap.
How do you view a Revit file if you don’t have Revit installed on your computer? Or when you don’t have the correct version of Revit installed. Look no further, Modelo’s new support for Revit will save you thousands of dollars every year on maintaining Revit licenses.
Simply drag and drop your Revit files into Modelo’s upload window, you would be able to view the 3D design and all the 3D element’s BIM information right in your browser.
You can search families and types. The searched elements will be highlights to give you a quick count of the items.
There are many ways to download Revit schedules to excel but do you know the element properties can also be downloaded as an excel document? Having these properties downloaded into excel you can quickly make quantitative analysis that helps you make the right business decisions.
And the best part of this is – You don’t even need to maintain a Revit license to do it! Simply upload the file to Modelo, and we will convert the 3D file into a data sheet that can be downloaded with a simple click. No installation required, no Revit license required. You can save thousands of dollars on software licensing fees every year.
Step 1 – Drag and Drop your Revit file into Modelo, we support Revit 2015 to 2019.
Step 2 – Open Share Tool Bar and click to “Download BIM Data”.
Modelo supports your complete design-build-manage process by with a robust, collaborative online BIM tool. Modelo automatically imports BIM properties and elements from compatible Revit files. By predictably, productively and profitably connecting workflows, utilizing BIM in Modelo permits team members to more completely navigate models, conduct lightning fast 3D quantity takeoff calculations and analyze sectional material volumes, mark-up the design with their comments, and digitize their construction sites and processes – all in an online tool accessible from any device.
Collaborating on Building Information Modeling projects is made easy in Modelo. The online 3D BIM tool allows users to quickly calculate the volume of materials required, construction costs, or any other number of construction-related calculations. These estimates can then be recorded and shared through Modelo and any construction issues that are foreseen in the design can be marked up directly on the design in the browser and addressed prior to construction beginning.
For those asking ‘What is BIM?’, or Building Information Modeling, it is a 3D model-based process that gives AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) professionals a wealth of information to intelligently plan, design, construct, and manage infrastructure and building projects. Put simply, BIM digitizes the design-build-manage process so that professionals throughout the entire lifecycle are working more effectively and proficiently handing over documentation.
To see Modelo’s collaborative 3D BIM software tool in action, take a moment to check out the overview video below:
BIM elements and properties are automatically imported into Modelo from applicable Revit models. To access the BIM information, simply click the BIM button in Modelo’s toolbar. From there, under ‘Project Browser’, it is a simple case of clicking your desired ‘Selection Sets’ to view detailed information on a design’s components including the area, volume, length, location and other important details.
Helpfully, there is a search bar, which you can use to quickly find any component in the design.
Using BIM in Modelo is available as an add-on feature for Modelo Business customers. To upgrade or purchase BIM, please contact Modelo on email@example.com or call +1 (617) 945-8692.
