About the project


3DIR is a research project launched in the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering at Loughborough University in 2012.

We are exploring how information (and documents) linked to 3D artefacts can be better managed using 3D models and visualisations.  We have produced a free 3DIR app for Autodesk Revit, which can be downloaded from the link below.


More recently, we explored how model topology would be exploited to improve information retrieval (work described in our recent journal paper).
