Masonry IQ Design Software

Masonry iQ is the leading design tool for masonry. As a plug-in to Revit, Masonry iQ allows architects to improve their workflow while creating 3D models with masonry-specific wall types, custom bond patterns, and computer analysis of wall geometry that includes corner bonding. Architects can browse and select an actual product from real-world block producers, placing their choices directly into the design and having the software do all the calculations, all while staying inside of Revit.
