Hi, fellow urban designers and architects!
Our team of computer nerds who understand the urban design and architecture space got an idea to ask you, experts in the field if there’s any functionality missing in SketchUp that would improve your workflow?
What would help you focus more on the design and creation and spend less time doing paperwork, compliance verification, calculation, or other manual tasks that can be easily outsourced to computers?
We have already build a few solutions like:
One-click parametric buildings & city-blocks creation from 2D faces
Responsive & parametric design modification with automatic real-time data calculation
Integrate zoning rules into your design for automatic complience verification
Live data synchronization with Excel Spreadsheets to save you from exporting your model data and makes it easy to compare multiple design options
Custom land use and unit specification (I don’t have an image, so here’s an explanation)
Example: Calculate the number of offices with a specific office size in a building. You can also specify the number of parking spaces you need per office and calculate the sum of parking spaces needed.
These are just a few functionalities we have built, and now we’re wondering what else would you need that would make your design process simpler?
Feel free to reply with your ideas.
And if you think our functionalities are already useful for your workflow, we’re currently opening a new partnership program. We’ll give 100 development hours to build custom solutions for free to a few companies that are willing to commit to a 3-year Modelur plan.
You can reach out to gasper.cerar[at]modelur[dot]com if you want to apply.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to see what else would you need
