  • Fast solid modeling Real-time boolean operations and parametric volumes that give the feel of working with physical objects that slide, snap, glue and stack.
  • Cross-platform collaboration Brainstorm design ideas together, experience and present from inside virtual reality or on your desktop, tablet or phone - everyone can join in.
  • Seamless workflow integration Explore and sketch on top of 3D models and scenes from Revit, Rhino, Unity and other 3D tools, then export your work back when ready.

Design
together

Work with people wherever they are in the world using VR headsets, desktops, phones and tablets. Try out new ideas, markup existing Revit and Rhino models, present design options, discuss and decide. Save time, save money and avoid costly misunderstanding.

Intuitive &
simple

Stack and glue shapes as if they’re real objects then carve, stretch and skew them in any way possible. Don’t like some part of your design? Just throw it away.

Mix realities

With Arkio on the Meta Quest you can seamlessly blend your physical and virtual environments. Draw new walls in your physical space, create windows through physical walls, place virtual furniture and even sketch entire house extensions on top of the real world.

Use Arkio anywhere

Sketch your next big idea and collaborate wherever you want. Arkio works on wired and mobile VR headsets as well as on your tablet, phone and PC. Create at your desk, a job site or at the beach - the choice is yours.

Revit and Arkio: A perfect match

Arkio fits right into your workflow and augments the way you already work. Import Revit models, context, maps, OpenStreetMap buildings, images or program data. Then export your new design back into Revit as proper Revit geometry and visualize your work in Enscape.

What people are saying about Arkio

Arkio is an unprecedented design tool that advances the way our teams work digitally. It removes the barriers we face with siloed modeling processes with an intuitive platform that connects our different design workflows into a collaborative immersive environment.

David Morgan Designer / VR Specialist, Sasaki Associates

Arkio is the first truly viable tool for architectural modelling in VR and a step ahead of more photo-realistic VR tools that provide only limited options for design.

Greg Davey Director, Davey + Smith Architects

Arkio is a perfect and simple tool for teaching and learning VR. It allows us to engage learners from novice to expert VR users to design and collaborate in VR, and to interact with their 3D scanned models and immerse in their scanned environment without programming skills.

Ann Stevens Lecturer of UX, Games & Interactive Design, TAFE Queensland

I am an aspiring designer, who enjoys creating in VR. Using Arkio, gives me the space to showcase my imagination with endless possibilities to build. As I enhance my craft, I am eager to share my unique vision and designs with the world.

Roshon Butts Concept Designer

Arkio is a game-changer in design and design communication. Bringing clients into a shared VR experience to talk about their space and possibilities helps us communicate the design process in spatial and visual way. I am also impressed with the continuous updates and expanded functionality that the team deploys. Arkio is truly a tool made by and for designers.

Hugh Soward Innovation Specialist, OPN Architects

Model at
any scale

Seamlessly transition between designing with scale models or at human scale. Grab entire skyscrapers with your hands or raise the ceiling height while standing inside an apartment at human scale. Arkio gives you design superpowers.

A new way to play with
design options

Creating multiple design options is a breeze with Arkio. Just duplicate your model, make changes and see both the original and the new version presented side-by-side on the models viewer.

Visualize programs and requirements

Apply program categories to shapes and see how close you are to meeting client requirements. See how area sizes update dynamically as you stretch shapes or carve into towers.
