Artificial intelligence for precise material selection for properties

PORTER is an intelligent software platform that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to transform 2D floor plans into 3D spaces that can be toured virtually. Alternatively, 3D files can be directly imported and interpreted. PORTER processes all of the necessary information from the imported data, allowing for precise material selection for your real estate projects. And it’s all BIM-ready!

PORTER – part of the BIM process chain

PORTER is fully compatible with BIM as a management and planning tool. The BIM databases from your real estate project are simply integrated into PORTER. The supported file format is IFC.

For example, flooring is automatically recognized based on IFC tags and geometric data in your newly created real estate project. PORTER upgrades the BIM process as a result. For realistic material selection – even before you get to detailed planning!

High-end visualization of real estate projects – even on the simplest devices

PORTER can be used on any laptop, tablet or desktop computer with a stable internet connection. A high-performance computer isn’t necessary! Thanks to Pixel Streaming technology, your real estate project is displayed in superb 3D quality online without needing any special processing power. Easy to use and share with a weblink.

Property tours from any location with the multi-user feature

“From any location” really means from any location. With the multi-user feature, multiple parties can move through a property and select materials at the same time in virtual reality and in the desktop view. In real time, from anywhere in the world and transparently for everyone involved in the project.

Linked to manufacturer databases with real products

PORTER integrates manufacturer databases, with their actual products and collections, including all the metadata. The PORTER cloud makes sure the planning databases and manufacturer product ranges are always up to date for everyone involved in the project.

Create area and price calculations as well as parts lists in real time

Algorithms running in the background make it possible to calculate area ratios in real time and create quantity/parts lists that include pricing. That translates into maximum project and budget transparency for your real estate planning!
