KitConnect FAQ

What is KitConnect?

KitConnect is a software technology that integrates with Revit enabling effective design reuse of repeatable elements throughout multiple projects saving design time and reducing errors.

KitConnect also helps designers take a BIM model and develop it into a manufacturable kit-of-parts to easily share with building manufacturers while reducing the burden of QA/QC.

 

KitConnect offers the ability to configure modules or groups while ensuring adherence to design standards. A unified enterprise library for repeated content allows controlled distribution and optimized repetition across multiple Revit projects.

Is KitConnect only for prefab designs?

KitConnect offers value in any repeatable design regardless of the intended construction method. KitConnect helps reduce the overhead of managing content and design standards on building typologies with high amounts of design repetition like hospitals, multi-family housing, office buildings, data centers. Using KitConnect for your repeatable design layouts ensures the project team adheres to the design intent while reducing time-consuming, repetitive modeling.

How does KitConnect improve my design process?

KitConnect reduces repetitive modeling, saving you time and eliminating errors that inevitably occur when recreating content. KitConnect helps prevent the usage of out-of-date designs in projects with robust versioning controls. Working with configurable content is simple and accessible. Designers and product engineers can easily manage design rules, guidelines, and content directly from Revit to the cloud. KitConnect eliminates issues associated with distributed content management tools and enables a seamless collaborative approach through a cloud-based library to share content across multiple projects, design teams, and external project stakeholders.

 

Also, KitConnect facilitates knowledge capture with data-centric workflows giving all users access to a single source of truth. As changes occur throughout the lifecycle of a project, designers, manufacturers, and builders can push information back to the kit, ensuring everyone is working with relevant and current data.

How does KitConnect improve hand-off from design to manufacturing?

The design of a BIM model is inherently different from designing a building for fabrication. Changes in mindset, scope, or design, can quickly introduce costly errors into the process. KitConnect’s module configurator tools ensure adherence to DfMA constraints directly from the KitConnect cloud library. KitConnect keeps your design intent in sync with fabrication constraints, so you spend less time and overhead preventing mistakes before they hit the factory floor.

 

BIM to BOM (Bill of Materials) quality assurance is made easy with KitConnect’s automated audit and on-demand Bill of Materials (BOM) functionality. KitConnect monitors and compares the Revit model against our source of truth in the cloud to ensure a highly accurate, highly coordinated Revit model.
