An updated model of the NEST building, now live on Dasher 360

A few days ago our friends at BIM Facility AG sent through a new version of the Revit model for the iconic NEST building.

This version is much more complete: it has the award-winning Urban Mining and Recycling Unit modelled, as well as having a significant amount of additional detail (furniture, etc.) elsewhere in the building.

The DFAB House has also received a makeover, getting more realistic materials, plus the ability to see into its ground floor and robotically-printed supporting wall.
