Custom Software Development

When commercial design and analysis applications fall short, our developers create the software tools that get the job done.

Commercially available software only gets us so far. That's because the scale and complexity of our projects often demand more functionality than commercial developers can justifiably build in. Our CORE studio’s application-development team fills that gap. We develop custom tools that augment or replace the functionality of commercially available software, providing tailor-made solutions to meet the specialized needs of our clients and projects. And to solve unique issues for individual clients, we offer plug-in development services.

CORE studio has developed plug-ins and extensions for a variety of design applications and analysis tools, including: 

  • Revit
  • AutoCAD
  • CATIA/Digital Project
  • Daysim 
  • Dynamo
  • EnergyPlus
  • Grasshopper
  • Inventor
  • Radiance
  • RAM Structural System
  • Rhinoceros
  • SAP2000
  • SolidWorks
  • Tekla

Our Applied Science practice has developed entire suites of applications to solve challenging engineering problems, such as:

  • The FLEX family of finite-element codes, including OnScale 
  • VistaMat, for advanced material modeling 
  • FacilityBlast VCE, a fast-running computational fluid dynamics tool that predicts vapor-cloud explosion loads
