What is the Hack about?

It aggregates models coming from multiple BIM software into a Material Bank - a repository of reusable building components. Then, it allows designers to map such elements into their new designs.

What inspired us for this Hack?

We are engineers who on daily basis research how to make buildings more sustainable. One way to do that is by applying circular practices, in particular - the reuse of building components.

How was the Hack built? What technology did we use?

Speckle, Grasshopper, Python, webhooks, genetic algorithms

What accomplishments are we most proud of?

Mapping of elements into new design and integrating it all seamlessly with Speckle!
