The story behind Plex.Earth: Taking the guesswork out of civil design

The story behind Plex.Earth: Taking the guesswork out of civil design

You have just won your next project and can't wait to create a model for your design. You have been in that position, right? Then, you know it: the whole process can be a cumbersome, time-consuming and prone to errors experience.

In 2009, Lambros Kaliakatsos, Plexscape founder & CEO, being a CAD manager back then, got a bitter taste of the difficulties designing without having the complete real-world view of his sites, anytime he needed it.

Having experienced the high cost of rework on projects he was responsible for, he decided to do something about it.

So, in case you wonder, here’s our story, as published in the TwinGEO magazine by the popular blog Geofumadas!

How to create live tours in Google Earth, for your AutoCAD design, with Plex.Earth

Showcasing your AutoCAD design to Google Earth and sharing it with others can be vital for your project: Winning that customer, taking instant feedback, convincing local authorities/communities and shareholders for your design.

What about not just exporting your design but also creating realistic videos and immersive live tours in Google Earth?

We have created a tutorial to show you how you can easily do that with Plex.Earth to engage anyone you want from the early stages of your design, reducing subsequent and unproductive iterations that cost you time and money.
