Akular has announced the release of Akular Twin, a lightweight app that is built on the Bentley iTwin platform.

The 3D visualisation platform company says that the app enables users to upload a BIM model during construction or have a BIM model created from the layout of an existing building. 

Construction site workers and management are said to be able to compare updated versions of the same model to detect clashes or create and track issues. This can be done through augmented reality, walking through using virtual reality, or pinch/zooming via a phone or tablet.

It was recently announced that the Akular Twin has been awarded ‘Powered by iTwin’ designation which means that the app has met the relevant criteria and meets the same standards as Bentley’s own Powered by iTwin apps.

Martin Rapos, CEO of Akular, said, “For so long now, the real estate and construction sectors have been stuck using last-century technologies, when all other industries are moving forward quickly. Digital twin applications could immediately start saving investors huge amounts of time, money and materials and make their ESG commitments more achievable. They also provide instant transparency to all stakeholders, which benefits everyone.”
