Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I see that I can use Layer App for Building Surveys. Can I use it for any other workflows?

Q: How do I start using Layer App?
We're glad you asked! The first step is to schedule a short demo and discovery call. On this call, we'll discuss your needs, answer your questions, and see if Layer App is the right fit for your team. No pressure, we promise. 

If Layer App is the right fit, we'll process payment, schedule training, and strategize project set up. 

Q: Does your software connect to Revit?
Yes! Layer App has a direct integration with Revit. 

Q: How does that work? Can I view Revit model data in Layer App and vice versa?
Yes! You can do this in one of two ways:

The first is to download and install our Revit Add-in. With this direct link, you can view Revit data in Layer App and view Layer App data directly in Revit with our add-in panel. 

The second is to upload a model file directly to Layer App. This is handy when working with team members who don't use or have access to a Revit license. 

Revit data such as 3d views, sheets, and a log of all model objects can be pulled directly into Layer App. Revit element parameters and spatial relationships can also be viewed directly in Layer App.

Q: Can I edit Revit model data in Layer App?
Yes! With our Synced Parameters feature, you can update Revit parameters with Layer data.
