CHICAGO, IL (AIA 2014) - Need some furniture to make your living space look more lived in? How does free, quality models sound? This is what Modlar promises. And not just furniture...they have tables, faucets, appliances...even people...and more. Over 20,000 according to their site.
I would hope architects and interior designers would not waste their time creating these items --it's such a poor use of billable time. They may be scanning manufacturer's websites for these items. But Modlar brings several manufacturer items under one roof to make your search easier.
It can provide models for the popular AEC CAD apps, including Revit, Archicad, MicroStation and SketchUp.
Modlar already has 55,000 users. It is led by Scott Barrington, CEO, who is himself an architect.
Modlar get its money from the manufacturer. You don't pay a thing. So enjoy!
