The wait is over...
Modelo's public beta has officially launched! For those of you who aren’t familiar with us yet, Modelo is a web-based design collaboration and workflow management platform for architects and industrial designers using CAD software. Put simply, we want to make day-to-day 3D presentation and communication workflows easier and enjoyable for architects and designers.
Modelo's founding team is made up by former architects and industrial designers. With this background, we have approached the platform's development from the perspective of creating a meaningful tool for designers by designers from day one.
We know the limitations of tools currently in the market, which turn 3D-focused presentations into clunky screenshots and design reviews into tedious, email-heavy struggles. Instead of working around these challenges, we decided to take them head on offering real-time feedback and presentation capabilities we wished we had ourselves.
In addition to presentation and communication, Modelo enables all of your models to be organized and easily accessible from a single location in the cloud. Modelo is compatible with Rhino, Sketchup, Revit, .OBJ files and .Zip files allowing you to upload your 3D models and view, store or transfer them. You can also upload videos, section documents, high resolution images and other file formats to provide the complete picture of your designs as they evolve.
Last but not least you can also embed your 3D models right in the browser and use them as part of your portfolio or particular project pages (example below).
