Review the diagram below to see how Assemble works and to get familiar with the names and areas of the user interface for the Assemble Add-in for Revit and the Assemble Insight web application. Assemble is designed to help you:
Assemble automates the extraction of all model information so your team can quickly access and use BIM data for design, precon and construction activities to achieve greater delivery efficiencies. Start by installing the Assemble Add-in for Revit, AutoCad Architecture, AutoCAD MEP, and Civil 3D to begin publishing information to the cloud in minutes. After logging into the Assemble Insight web application, any project stakeholder can immediately leverage the model information for unprecedented project insight.
Assemble’s web-based platform provides a collaborative environment to access, customize, condition and manage design and construction model data sets throughout the project lifecycle. Use BIM data to manage a design model to cost, communicate value engineering strategies, analyze change between model versions, interrogate quantities, explore what-if scenarios to better understand costs throughout the design and construction process and more, using a light weight, simple to use interface.
Assemble reduces project risk associated with traditional file-based project systems with easy version control and tracking. Everyone is able to access and work from the current model version. Publish the model to capture information at major milestones or weekly to track project trends. Export custom data sets to Microsoft Excel® for fast, reporting, conditioning, and analysis by all team members. Assemble makes model data accessible to all project stakeholders, regardless of their location.
