Make Informed Design Decisions

Semantic users can track live updates to their model data to support a data-driven design workflow. This image shows a user tracking the areas of each floor to design with an early design cost estimate based on a $/SF metric.

Semantic is a data-driven design plugin for Rhino 3d. Users can easily create custom object properties and create reports with its simple interface.

Semantic is a “no-code” app. In other words, Rhino users can get started with no prior coding or Grasshopper experience.

With Semantic, you can see real-time updates while you design. You can compare the live model data to your project’s goals and KPIs. As a result, you can make data-driven design decisions to improve your projects.

Use Semantic to Improve your Design Workflow

View 3D Rhino Model in Power BI. Semantic enables users to visualize their Rhino models and object properties in Power BI, a helpful tool for presentations.

Here are a few examples of things you can do with Semantic today:

  • Measure Floor Areas and Estimate Construction Cost ($/SF) in a live model
  • Compare multiple Design Options against your project’s KPIs
  • Explain and illustrate your data-informed decisions to your clients in design review meetings
  • Share intuitive, interactive 3D dashboards with project stakeholders

View Rhino 3D Models in Power BI

Users can create interactive dashboards in Power BI that link 3D Rhino models with other data sources. This example shows solar analysis data from Ladybug in Power BI.

Semantic includes Power BI visuals, so you can view your Rhino 3d model into Power BI. Furthermore, you can create interactive 3D reports that connect data to your design.

Tabular Reporting of Rhino Properties

The Semantic Report user interface allows users to create custom tabular reports that contain the object data from Rhino 3d Models.

With Semantic, you can create customized, live tabular reports that organize the Rhino data from your model.

These tables can be exported as SQL, Excel, CSV, and JSON files for use in other applications.
