Collaborative
Spatial Design

Collaborate and create better architectural designs faster using virtual reality, desktop and mobile

Get started
  • 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 imported 3D models from Revit, Rhino and other design 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.

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.

Arkio plays well with other 3D tools

With plugins for Rhino and SketchUp and integration with BIM 360 it is easy to bring your models into Arkio and work on them in VR, on desktop, tablet or phone. Sketch new geometry, annotate and collaborate with others, then easily export your work back.

  • Rhino
  • SketchUp
  • BIM 360

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.

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.
