I first came across Modelur when I was making the calculations for a redevelopment project in the center of Amsterdam. The common practice was to build a 3D model in Sketch-Up for the massing and subsequently to make the calculations in an Excel spreadsheet.
This became very stressful once we needed to compare multiple designs in a short period due to the time spent on doing the calculations as well as making sure they were accurate.
For us, Modelur has changed this part of the design process from being time-consuming and fraught with mistakes, to dynamic, accurate, and quick. By using Modelur, we’ve been able to channel the saved time back into our massing studies. This has improved the overall quality of our designs. We’ve come to call it the ‘Modelur effect.’
