Configuration Control

Create Rules & Logic, Allow More Flexibility and Fidelity While Reflecting DfMA Intent

Set your manufacturable designs free with rules and logic attached to your content. Let your Modules & kit-of-parts be configurable while ensuring all content remains buildable. Unlock the potential of your engineers, architects, and project teams by easily moving from design to manufacturing on project after project.

Data Centric Workflows

Centralized and Reliable data In the Cloud, Exposed Data Across Multiple Environments, Easy Project Scaling,

Make your teams more efficient and deliver more projects on time by reusing reliable and centralized content. Discourage the use of project one-offs and let engineers focus on design optimization. KitConnect encourages re-use of designs with a high level of development. You can use our shared parts feature to quickly drive changes across large number of modules without the need to open and update each module separately.

Bill of Materials

Quickly Go From a Bounding Box in Revit to a Full Bill of Material (BOM)

In the web app, a roll-up bill of materials can be viewed in real-time and exported to .csv for live quantity takeoffs or export to other software. Users that need model context in their own documentation can connect to the same KitConnect project database and fetch the entire as-published project model.

Built By Project Frog

Transforming the Chaos of Design and Construction

Here at Project Frog we started tackling the individual problems associated with the growth of the built environment. As we solved each, moving on to the next, we scaled from part-level solutions to building-wide, from data point to data-flow, from instance to systems.
We are now a product and technology company offering tailored solutions to the Industrialized Construction (IC) industry. Our solution enable mass customization at scale through the intersection of design, manufacturing and technology. This solution integrates product and technology methodology to automate the design, configuration, manufacturing interface and other redundant processes in the AEC world.

A Platform With Best Built-in IC Practices

Kitconnect content management image

Content Management

Reduces repetitive modelling and detailing that has already been approved for fabrication on past projects. This feature eliminates errors that inevitably occur when recreating content and also prevents out-of-date designs from being used in projects by using the versioning feature.

Kitconnect roles and collaboration image

Roles & Collaboration

Reduces number of design iterations between project designers and kit designers. Roles and collaboration feature allows only those with the expertise and knowledge of the kit to make detailed changes and permits those with limited knowledge of the kit to spin off rules-based changes. This feature is a great way of preventing costly mistakes.

Kit connect enterprise library image

Enterprise Library

Allows you to easily reuse content on multiple projects, saving time, and ensuring consistency. It pushes updates across all projects and builds a truly scalable system that is easy-to-use and always up-to-date.

Kit connect model quality control image

Model Quality Control

Your project accuracy is guaranteed by keeping kit components synchronized with their latest cloud definitions. Rules set by engineers and kit designers are programmatically enforced through synchronization and auditing features.

Level of Detail

View your content the way you want to! Quickly place low LOD bounding boxes and fill a project. They may seem like simple shapes, but with KitConnect they actually represent a full Bill of Materials (BOM). This feature gives you tremendous flexibility and speed in Revit.

Kit connect project frog support image

Support

We provide quarterly software updates - no need to hire developers to maintain the plugin for each Revit release.

Whatever you do, at any phase, we got you.

Frequently asked questions

We make working with a Kit-of-Parts easy and accessible. With KitConnect, your expert designers and product engineers can mange DfMA rules/design guidelines and content directly from Revit to the cloud, and share that cloud library across multiple projects, design teams and external organizations. With our single source of truth managed in the cloud, we eliminate distributed systems of content management, design guidelines and parts tracking with our integrated Revit to Web solution. We lower the barrier to entry to work with configurable content so all of your designers can focus on what they do best… making great buildings.
BIM to BOM quality assurance is made easy with KitConnect's automated audit and Bill of Materials (BOM) functionality. We monitor you Revit model against our source of truth in the cloud to ensure a highly accurate, highly coordinated Revit model. And with KitConnect's module configurator tools, you can rest assured that your design teams are adhering to the DfMA constraints directly from your cloud library. Errors during manufacturing due to bad data handling can have enormous cost impacts. KitConnect keeps your design intent in sync with fabrication constraints so you spend less time and overhead working to catch errors before they hit the factory floor.
In AEC, change is a constant. It's important to capture knowledge throughout the lifecycle of a project, from designers, manufacturers, builders, and push that knowledge back into the Kit. Our data centric workflows give all your users access to single source of truth, whether they're working in Revit or the Web.
Even if you're in the early days of your prefab or DfMA journey, KitConnect can work for you. We've set out to make working with configurable, modular/DfMA content easy and accessible. It turns out that many of the same benefits can be found if your working with any repeatable design elements that are used again and again across multiple projects. If you're working on hospitals, multi-family housing, office buildings, data centers, or other typologies with standard design elements, and high amounts of repetition, KitConnect will help you reduce the overhead of managing your content, and your design standards. And as you journey further down the DfMA path, we'll be right there with to support even more complex DfMA workflows.
DfMA stands for Designed for Manufacturing and Assembly. In AEC this is how a module, building system or component is designed to be efficiently manufactured in the factory, and easily assembled on-site during construction.
