Arkio - live collaborative design on Revit, Rhino & SketchUp models
Arkio is a new collaborative design tool that enables designers to work together on buildings, interiors and urban plans using VR, AR, PCs, tablets and phones.
Johan and Hilmar will invite the audience at NXT BLD to join them live in Arkio to show how Arkio can be used for real-time collaboration and presentations. Expect to sketch various design options and demonstrate how to work with existing Revit, Rhino and SketchUp models.
The Arkio folks will also visit some of the projects its users have been creating with Arkio and show how to work at different scales, design with parametric shapes and use features like real-time program calculations, sections and saved views.
Hilmar is the founder and CEO of Arkio, a startup creating a unique collaborative VR/AR design tool for architects. Prior to Arkio he founded Modio, a startup that created a creative toy design and 3D printing app which was acquired by Autodesk in 2014. Before Modio he worked for OZ, an early leader in mobile messaging, where he led the company’s sales and marketing, and ultimately managed the sales process when OZ was acquired by Nokia in 2008.
