Now that we have your attention you might be wondering why would you choose to use 3D Repo over anything else and most importantly when should you use it.

Our main focus is of course collaboration, because after all who wants to get lost in the emails, sit around waiting for the next coordination meeting or be unable to share the information that others need so urgently. Teams collaborating in different offices, regions or even different countries can communicate with ease and access 3D Models through a web browser.

Data Accessibility

Access your data whenever you need it and quickly scale as your project requirements change. Whether you're working in Revit, Navisworks, Bentley Microstation, Synchro 4D or even Solibri, we support many popular BIM file formats.

All of our customer’s data is stored in highly secure AWS data centres. You can access it through a web browser on or using our APIs.
Should you require Private or On-Premise deployment, that can be arranged so that the rest of your team maintains the accessibility to your data.

Just as a reminder, we are Cyber Essentials Certified & we even hold ISO/IEC 27001 & ISO 9001 Certificates.


Effective communication is essential across many project delivery stages, whether you are developing a conceptual design, technical design, delivering your project on-site or engaging with an FM team.

3D Repo's built-in live collaborative tools such as Issue Tracking & SafetiBase will allow you to communicate with anyone in real-time, just as you would using any other social media platform. Creating issues, commenting on issues, Tagging individuals and sharing attachments couldn't be easier using our very own Kanban Board.

Ease of Use

Our main ambition is to democratise the complex BIM workflows and remove any steep learning curves. From day 1 our users can start engaging with such workflows as model change management, clash coordination, data validation, asset management, project collaboration and many more.
