Use the HoloBuilder Add-In for Autodesk® Revit® to:

  • Export coordination BIM model 360° viewpoint renderings from Autodesk® Revit® to HoloBuilder with a few clicks.

  • Include the project planning phase by combining the BIM model viewpoints with 360° progress photos (TimeTravel) for side-by-side comparison with SplitScreen.

  • Open and view the lightweight rendering views on any device, even in the field, without the need to download any software.

  • Use it for design review between all stakeholders, of which many are often remote.

The add-in is compatible with the below-listed versions of Autodesk® Revit®. Please make sure to have either of the Autodesk® Revit® versions installed on your PC (with administrator rights):

  • Autodesk® Revit® 2017 or later
