ArchiveHub lets users download and browse complete project data for handover, analysis or archiving
London-based AEC software developer Matterlab has released ArchiveHub, an archiving solution for Autodesk BIM 360 that lets users download and browse complete project data for handover, analysis or archiving at project milestones.
The software comes with a desktop viewer application that lets users view and browse their archive, keeping all metadata and file structures intact so that it’s ‘easy to explore’.
According to Matterlab, manually downloading every file on BIM 360 is difficult, takes a long time and can leave you with only partial project information. With ArchiveHub, all information and file structures are kept intact, ‘minimising any risks of error or incomplete data’.
ArchiveHub can also help with compliance and legal requirements for archiving data, such as holding onto construction project data for several years after a project has been completed.
The software keeps every bit of project information intact, including data on issues, comments and all other metadata and relationships between items.
With the enterprise version of ArchiveHub, archives can be automated, set at user-defined intervals. The system only downloads the content and metadata that has changed between archiving operations.
Prices start at $600 per archive.
Earlier this year Matterlab launched Unitize, a generative design tool and Revit plug-in designed to help architects assess residential masses in seconds.
