ARCKIT system begins phased launch

A swift and affordable architectural modelling system will begin a phased launch on 3 May. ARCKIT, a freeform model building tool will be released in the UK and Ireland on 3 May followed by the United States and the remainder of the EU in June, and the rest of the world in July/August.

The ARCKIT system enables architects to create physical models using interconnecting components to a diverse range of scales. As the process does not use glue, it is dramatically faster to assemble that traditional models and can be altered repeatedly as the design is adapted.

Added features such as ARCKIT DIGITAL are designed to allow users to recreate ARCKIT designs using SketchUp versions of ARCKIT components in Trimble’s 3D Warehouse. This makes it possible to develop 3D computer models of a physical ARCKIT model, share designs with clients and colleagues, and calculate component quantities necessary to physically build a virtual design.
