Our Desktop Connectors are plugins for some of the most popular construction industry software including Rhino, Revit, Grasshopper, Dynamo, AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Unity, Blender (and more). They take care of sending and receiving data in your software to and from your Speckle Web App. The Connectors can handle almost any kind of data. Most commonly, this will be CAD and BIM data; essentially, geometry with attached metadata.

Each time the Connectors send data to your Speckle server, they also take care of transforming it from your software's native format to Speckle's own, neutral format. This makes accessing it from other software extremely easy and fast.

The Speckle Manager is a desktop application that handles accounts and connectors on your machine.
