Products > DESTINI Profiler
DProfiler is an industry acclaimed technology that helps facilitate more informed decision making, target value design, integrated project delivery, and lean methodology. Notable product features include:
Simple and Easy to Use 3D Modeling
Most users experience a very short learning curve even with little or no experience in CAD or other BIM applications.
Flexible Data Consumption
DProfiler is built with the flexibility to use data from many sources such as Google Earth, Timberline, MC2, Excel, PDF, AutoCAD, Revit, and many others.
Multiple Project Starting Points
Although DProfiler is most known for building design and cost analysis from an early sketch or CAD file, it can do much more. For example, models can be generated from a space program or even a Revit model.
Users can create a report to match what they produced prior to deploying DProfiler, customer logo, or even create reports to gather special data on the project.
Sometimes the best solution is not intuitive even for the most experienced experts. One of the most unique features of DProfiler is the integration of multiple disciplines. This allows the users to understand and communicate trade-offs across disciplines in a way that simplifies the problem. Concurrently analyze dirt work, energy costs, schedule, exterior enclosure, structure, parking … all in one place.
DProfiler is the most comprehensive project analysis tool in the building design and construction industry. Notable benefits to the project team include:
Lower Risk/Improve Predictability
DProfiler's combined visual + data modeling capabilities provide a major breakthrough in predictability. Formulas drive costs on each system based on the specific design, materials, site conditions, phasing, and other parameters that produce much more accurate information in a given time period.
DProfiler gives the team a clearer way to review the proposed design and understand the assumptions and the cost drivers. Less will fall through the cracks and the team will have better alignment of scope, cost, and schedule.
DProfiler uniquely provides data in real-time as the graphical model is being developed or changed. Alternative concepts can be easily explored all while seeing the cost and other data update in real time. The design-estimate cycle time is often 10x shorter than traditional processes.
In DProfiler, you can develop a tailored “kit of parts” database that captures the rules of thumb your firm observes repeatedly. This will allow your firm to leverage your company historical data as an asset by anyone who has access to the program.
Reduction of Rework
Specialization in AEC has created silos that cause immense rework as activities are performed out of sync and by different parties. DProfiler enables more collaboration and reduces rework.
Engages All Stakeholders
Studies show that only a fraction of the human population can look at 2D and visualize in 3D. There may be even fewer people who can stay enthusiastically engaged while reviewing a detailed cost estimate and scope clarifications document. With that said, it is crucial that all the major stakeholders can visualize the end product and understand exactly what is included in the budget. Project after project, DProfiler proves to be the perfect tool to bring different people together for a common goal.
