3D Repo, a London, UK-based provider of cloud-based design collaboration for Building Information Modelling (‘BIM’), raised £2.3m in A-series funding.
The round was led by Ingenious via its Infrastructure Ventures EIS Service.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Led by Dr Jozef Dobos, Founder and CEO, 3D Repo provides a platform that allows users to manage 3D model revisions and to highlight potential clashes and safety issues using live collaboration tools which enable the whole project team to work from a single source, anywhere and at any time. Users can manage model revisions and highlight potential issues using live collaboration tools, which allow the whole project team to work from a single source. It also includes patent pending technology to identify real-time changes and clashes in 3D models. By comparing the actual geometry of a model rather than underlying, software specific object IDs or labels, 3D Diff Change Detection can identify changes between models from different sources. 3D Diff Clash Detection automatically highlights intersections, and therefore potential conflicts, between different types of models.
The company’s technology has been already deployed on some of construction projects with companies such as Atkins, Balfour Beatty, Bryden Wood, BuroHappold, Canary Wharf Contractors, and Crossrail among others.
