Konstru and VisualArq have teamed up to make it easier for you to upload, download, and translate models between VisualARQ and Konstru. Seamlessly work with with Revit, SAP2000, ETABS, RAM Structural System, Tekla Structures, Dynamo or Excel by running our Grasshopper Scripts for Konstru.
Upload a VisualARQ Model to Konstru:
The process is simple. You have a model in Rhino made of VisualARQ walls, slabs, columns and beams. Just need to:
- Log in or sign up in Konstru and create a new model.
- Open the “Upload VA to Konstru” file in Grasshopper that you can find in this link.
- Click on the Select Model button to select the project in Konstru where you want to send the model.
- Put the Enable button to True in the definition everytime you need to send all VisualARQ objects to Konstru.
Konstru will identify each element by its type, as well as its information, and get the full model ready to be sent to other programs.
Watch the process in this video.
Download a Model from Konstru to VisualARQ:
In this case, you can import a model previously uploaded to your Konstru account into Rhino.
- Open the “Download Konstru to VA” file in Grasshopper that you can find in this link.
- Click on the Select Model button to select the project in Konstru that you want to import into Rhino.
- Bake the geometry whenever you want to see it as workable VisualARQ objects in Rhino.

VisualARQ provides IFC features that help architects, engineers, and professionals of the AEC industry to exchange 3D models between Rhino and other BIM programs.
The IFC guide from Rhino to Revit is aimed at helping users to export and import models between Rhino and Revit using the IFC file format. The guide provides useful information for the following topics:
- How does the import & export through IFC work?
- What information can be stored in IFC files generated with VisualARQ?
- How are VisualARQ and Rhino objects recognized in Revit?
- Solutions for common problems in this process.
The guide also adds tips of how to tag any Rhino geometry with specific IFC type or how to add custom parameters to geometry for IFC files.

BIM World 2018
Espace Grande Arche – Paris Defense
28-29 March 2018. 9h-18h
Rhinoforyou will be exhibiting for fourth consecutive year at BIM World 2018 in Paris, from March 28 to March 29 (stand 563, near to the conference room).
Rhinoforyou will be presenting the BIM software solution RhinoArchitecture, an innovative and economically affordable solution that integrates consistently Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and VisualARQ.
During this event, the Rhinoforyou experts, in collaboration with Francesc Salla, VisualARQ’s product manager, will be available for live demonstrations of Rhino, Grasshopper and VisualARQ
You will get to know RhinoArchitecture, the flexible and affordable BIM solution for all sizes of business!
Details and registration…
The needs of users are constantly changing and evolving. Since the first version of VisualARQ launched in 2009, all the improvements that the users themselves – architects, engineers or interior designers – have asked for have been gradually incorporated. In the following post we explain what the main improvements are in the recently released 2.0 version:
Flexible BIM with VisualARQ Presentation
The Rede brasileira de fabricaçao digital in collaboration with the TI Lab organize in Sao Paulo a presentation-webinar of the Flexible BIM features of VisualARQ 2.
The architect Affonso Orciuoli will show the main VisualARQ features for working with BIM objects inside Rhino such as walls, stairs, windows, etc., which are treated as parametric objects, combining architectural modeling with Rhino's free-form modeling. The presentation will show how VisualARQ is capable of generating all 2D documentation (plants, cuts, facades, details) directly from the 3D model, the full integration with Grasshopper and the BIM features to export and import IFC models between Rhino and other BIM programs.
The webinar will be presented in Portuguese.
Guest speaker: Affonso Orciuoli
Host: João Gaspar
Date: January 31, 2018, 2:00 pm (GMT-2)
TI Lab location: Rua Cláudio Soares, 72, Pinheiros, São Paulo
The presentation-webinar is free, but seats are limited.
