How does it work?

Get going quickly!

Get going quickly by simply making an account, creating a project and uploading a model.

Add Project Highlights, Images, context Layers, and Views easily to help stakeholders understand your project. Then, just press publish.

Tell your projects story

Viewers can turn on context Layers, play with the Solar tool to understand the shadows cast, as well as use the Views tool to see different angles of the project.

You curate the information that each tool shows to best tell your projects story, and stakeholders can explore at their own pace.

Talk with your stakeholders

Stakeholders can pin comments to your project and ask questions, respond to other pins, or up and down-vote other comments.

You can respond to your stakeholders and answer their questions instantly. We can help to ensure that comments are appropriate and safe.
