PlaceMaker for Revit

We are excited to release PlaceMaker for Revit. This Add-In has all the power of SketchUp PlaceMaker but now directly for Revit users. PlaceMaker imports into Revit a variety of 3D data, aerial images and terrain.


Quick and easy to use, PlaceMaker saves time and money. What would take days, if not weeks, can be done in minutes.

PlaceMaker brings in detailed 3D cities from around the world including terrain, roads, walks, buildings, train rails, trees. Matchless aerials and more!

Traditionally hard to get data and 3D models, are available with a simple click. Just select the type of 3D data you want and PlaceMaker will do the rest, importing and lining up the data which is also geo-accurate.

Easily assemble whole cities on top of mountains and fill in detailed urban locations along water fronts.

And the data is GLOBAL! With coverage of most places on the planet, PlaceMaker users span the world.
