We are pleased to announce new implementation services for streamlining digital design workflows with Conveyor. We have recently begun enterprise implementations of Conveyor at award-winning design firms including Woods Bagot, HDR, CallisonRTKL, and Studio Gang. Our services provide consulting support and training for new workflows while also granting enterprise-wide access to Conveyor technology.
Rhino and Revit are among the most popular design and BIM tools in use by architecture firms today. However, compatibility between these programs remains a challenge. ‘Out of the box’ import and export features only address a very narrow set of compatibility needs. Moreover, many open source solutions, including our Rhynamo tools, often require users to be savvy with computational design tools. The primary goal of Conveyor is to enable sophisticated digital workflows that can be implemented by a wider team with a low barrier to entry.
Conveyor makes use of Proving Ground’s proprietary geometry translation algorithms that have evolved over years of hands-on project engagements.
Conveyor makes use of Proving Ground’s proprietary geometry translation algorithms that have evolved over years of hands-on project engagements. The technology enables designers to make use of Rhino’s sophisticated geometry tools and transition this information into BIM elements for production and documentation. For example, Conveyor includes new mesh-based geometric translation tools used on high-profile projects including the American Museum of Natural History Gilder Center designed by Studio Gang. This approach was also recently published as peer-reviewed research at the 2017 ACADIA conference.
The Conveyor implementations are indicative of Proving Ground’s ambition to provide leading-edge, scalable digital design workflow solutions that combine project-proven technology with our team’s unique industry experience. By implementing Conveyor with industry-leading organizations, we believe these tools will deliver high business value and support the evolution of the model-based design and delivery process.
Proving Ground is also overseeing similar implementations involving early-stage data integration with Semantic and BIM data harvesting with Minecart. More information on these implementations will be published in the future!
