Modelo Inc. Launches Revolutionary 3D Presentation and Collaboration App Out of Beta

Powerful Web-Based Workflow Integration App for AEC Professionals to Drive Presentation and Collaboration in the CAD Industry

Present in 3D and VR

Today, Modelo Inc., a web-based 3D and VR presentation and collaboration platform for AEC professionals, announced the end of its beta period and stable release of its highly regarded web application. Collecting design feedback and preparing presentations that previously took hours, now takes only minutes using Modelo, demonstrating a transformation in design communication for AEC professionals.

Modelo empowers users of CAD software, including Rhino, Revit, SketchUp , Vectorworks and 3ds Max, and to easily share and present their designs in 3D, create animated walkthroughs, and immerse clients in their designs through virtual reality (VR). Additionally, design teams can seamlessly collaborate and provide feedback directly on 3D CAD models, right from their browser or Modelo’s iOS and Android apps.

"Modelo has been instrumental in terms of saving us time."

Modelo replaces file sharing services such as Dropbox, FTP servers, and WeTransfer. This allows users to store all 2D and 3D project assets, meeting notes, and design inspirations together with their project in one secure and convenient location in the cloud, all while keeping project collaborators in sync.

Announcing the release, CEO and Co-Founder of Modelo, Qi Su, who is a former architect, stated, “Modelo was started because the CAD industry was missing a tool to help architects collaborate on their designs and easily present them in 3D and VR. Our team has worked very hard over the last couple years to get to this point, and I am excited to see our shared vision become a reality today.”

During Modelo’s beta phase, the company developed indispensable features to help AEC professionals be more productive, communicate efficiently, and stay organized. These features have been furthered strengthened in today’s release and clients are excited. Jon McCandlish from KieranTimberlake commented “Modelo has been instrumental in terms of saving us time. It’s been incredibly fast for team and non-team members alike to pick up, not only to actually navigate around models, but to actually create their own content.” McCandlish went on to say that Modelo’s ability to quickly create previews of designs that removed a number of internal barriers and saved “...tens or even hundreds of hours of computational time.”

Today’s announcement coincides with Modelo’s attendance and exhibition at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando, Florida from April 27th to April 29th, which will mark the first public demonstration of new features and improvements to all attendees on the expo floor. Modelo is exhibiting at Booth 3086.
