Conceptual 3D Cost Modeling with DProfiler

Approximately 70% of construction cost drivers are set during the planning and conceptual phases, yet mainstream BIM software does not produce a reliable cost estimate at these stages. Most early budgets are terribly inaccurate, take too long to produce, and provide no visual way to confirm assumptions with the team. DProfiler™ software is the solution to these problems.


DProfiler™ is a first of its kind Macro BIM solution offering all-in-one:

  • 3D Modeling
  • Cost Estimating
  • Energy Analysis
  • Site Topography & Cut/Fill Analysis
  • Sequencing
  • Real Estate Dashboard

Among others, DProfiler™ exports IFC (model & cost), DWG (model), Excel (cost), and PEE (Timberline estimate) to support different BIM workflows. Beck Technology also has developed a Revit Add-In that creates a native RVT (Revit file) from the DProfiler™ model.

There's more information available on the Beck Technology website.

  3. How does the add-in work when sending a model form Revit to DProfiler?
