The Footprint company’s BIM integration allows users to calculate embodied carbon impact analysis using real time visualization for all project types. Along with visualization, the tool also allows for benchmarking the entire building as well as all building elements against industry standards. 

With over 300,000,000 sqm of buildings assessed – we understand that the biggest carbon mitigation is to be had at the very early stage of design.   Our mission is to enable 3D real time carbon calculation and benchmarking as a go to for every project and empowering every design.

BIM integration made easy

Rhino / Grasshopper API

The Footprint company has developed Greenbook API connection to Rhino 3D that enables linking a Rhino Model with the materials, assemblies and benchmarks available in the Greenbook and providing dynamic results for upfront embodied carbon for the projects. It’s possible to import and sync project components to understand key impact areas early on and test different design strategies to improve project performance.

Giraffe Life cycle carbon tool

The Footprint company has partnered with Giraffe Build to create a life cycle carbon tool for early stage embodied carbon assessment and benchmarking according to different building classes. It provides dynamic results for the modelled projects.


Common Questions

Currently BIM integration is possible using Rhino 6 (3D software)(using the Grasshopper & HUMAN plugin). We are in the process of making BIM integration possible with other softwares.

You need the Footprint company’s API subscription to use BIM integration.

Currently, we have one way dynamic integration of the 3D model with the GreenBook™ API. We are in the process of updated and improving our BIM integration.

We provide demo videos and a user guide for API integration. Training for API / BIM integration varies depending on subscription package.
