Assemble Overview

What is Assemble?

Assemble Systems, an Autodesk company, provides a cloud-based data management solution that enables construction professionals to condition, query and connect BIM data to various key workflows including design reviews, estimating, takeoffs, estimating, schedule management, value engineering, and change management. By extracting model inventories in minutes, Assemble provides project teams with quick access to comprehensive inventories that offer greater efficiency in their work.

With Assemble, entire teams can access BIM through their web browser and collaborate on real time, data-driven decisions on designs, bids, and more. Model data is visualized through extracted inventories linked to the mode viewer, enabling the quantification of takeoffs, changes and cost implications. Assemble's visual variance reporting tools allow users to track changes to any numerical model property including length, area, cost, or weight. Conceptual estimating supports early project budgeting based on the unit cost database, and can be combined with variance reporting to track project trends as new model versions are published.

Assemble's level of development (LOD) tracking lets users understand model progression, and can be verified or edited and synced back with the model. Other data than can be synced with the model in Revit includes type name modifications and instance-level descriptive data such as team member comments or manufacturer names. Assemble also allows users to export custom data sets to a Navisworks search or Microsoft Excel.

Pros

Assemble can be used for a number of tasks from bidding the project to confirming subs' quantities to communicating work that needs to be done to the team. You can setup a views that show only what you want to show and slice and dice the data anyway that you want to. This give the full power of the I in BIM in a practical way to give the highest value to your company and client.

Cons

There are a few bugs in the software that have been there for a long time. These bugs don't make the software unusable, just slightly less convenient.

Pros

Assemble allows non-BIM people to view and navigate a model without needing any software. They are also able to view quantities and dimensions of objects. You can even select an element and view which drawings it is shown in.

Cons

The model can be slow to load on older computers. Also, although it has several useful features, it does not provide a complete solution for model based estimating.

Pros

Assemble has been of great use to me for determining quantities form the model. Its easy to pull of the quantities once a revit or a cad model is published to assemble. Same models with different versions can be compared through Assemble. Assemble generates the bill of quantities in excel which is very helpful.

Cons

Assemble doesn't support many modeling platforms apart from Revit and Autocad. It would help if it can be compatible with Tekla, Sketch up and rhino.

Pros

Assemble is easy to use for our staff that might not know much about 3D Models and BIM. With the software being we hosted it can be accessed from anywhere and doesn't need to be manually updated.

Cons

Some of the new features with the 2D drawing integration need to be worked out. The licensing method also makes it easy to go over on the number of projects you are allowed a month.

Pros

This software takes BIM to the next level by converting a three dimensional model into useful information.

Cons

Sometimes the software does not identify the elements of a model. The attributes have to be correct for assemble to extract the correct information.
