Collaboratively sketch urban plans, buildings and interiors like never before using VR, PCs, phones and tablets. Start fresh or import a 3D model, sketch on top of it then export your design to other 3D design tools, including to Revit as native Revit geometry.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our goal has been to develop Arkio in close collaboration with our users. During our closed beta we have received a lot of valuable feedback from architectural design firms and now we’re making Arkio generally available to ensure we get as much feedback as possible from the broader VR and architectural design community.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“We expect Arkio to be in Early Access for 6-12 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“During Early Access we will continue to improve the user experience and address stability issues to enhance the modeling experience. The full version of Arkio will offer additional controls for users to host, share and collaboratively work on models with others. We plan to integrate more closely with Rhinoceros and other 3D modeling tools and make it easier for users to get started with Arkio.

The feedback we will receive from the community during Early Access will impact the final product and features to be included in the free and Pro versions of the app.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Arkio can already be used for real projects. Users can design collaboratively using tools in VR and non-VR, import 3D models (OBJ, Revit, Rhino), images, maps and programs as well as export to Revit and other 3D modeling tools. Some modeling operations and features are still in development and will be finalized during Early Access.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Arkio will be available as a free and a paid version during Early Access. Some of the features available for free in Early Access may become restricted and require a purchase once we transition out of Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We’d love to understand the needs and requirements of our users and look forward to hearing what you think about Arkio. Questions and suggestions can be shared with us on our forums at

About This Software

Arkio is a collaborative design tool that enables you to easily sketch buildings, interiors and entire urban plans with others in VR as well as on PCs, tablets and phones. Arkio features a unique volumetric modeling kernel built from the ground-up for modeling in VR and on mobile devices, making the modeling experience feel closer to physical model making than traditional mesh modeling. In Arkio you can either start modeling from scratch or import your own 3D models and even 2D images, then sketch on top of them and export your work back to other 3D tools like Rhino and Revit as native Revit geometry.

  • Collaborate and design with up to 24 people in the same scene
  • 8 Powerful and easy to use volumetric modeling tools
  • Work on existing 3D maps
  • Import and draw on models from Revit, Rhino, or Sketchup (OBJ and native plugins)
  • Export your designs back to Revit as native Revit geometry
  • Work from any scale - use your hands in god scale or move things at human scale - like having design superpowers
  • Create design options on the fly, make changes and see both the original and the new version presented side-by-side
  • Smart components that can be grabbed, stretched, and glued like physical building blocks
  • Collaborate locally in hybrid mode with one VR users and one user on PC
  • Work with program data, sun studies, sections and more!

Arkio is currently in early access so please be aware that not everything works perfectly yet :) We'd love to hear how we can further improve Arkio as a design tool, both for personal and professional use.
