Modelobjects – The Real-Time BIM Messenger for Revit

From the Autodesk App Store:

Great teams walk the talk.
The constant back, forth, question, answer, and continued dialogue can be all too much for some BIM collaboration tools to handle. Today's CAD collaboration tools lack the quickfire interaction needed to drive collective team decision making. They can also lock users into formal, prolonged and sometimes unnecessary workflow. Modelobjects has reinvented intra-team communications by putting your BIM models at the center of the discussion.

Increased Design Productivity
Conversations drive the design process in AEC projects. Modelobjects streamlines the dialogue, pin-pointing the discussion to the areas of your 3D model where it's needed most.

Better Stakeholder Management
Non-technical, site, facility and other managers can interact and communicate directly with the core design or engineering team, driving fast and efficient stakeholder inputs.

Faster Team Alignment
Across the AEC spectrum, changes in one discipline can have knock-on effects in others. With Modelobjects, conversations take place in a virtual office where everyone is around the table.
