Real estate agents can snatch up free virtual 3-D models of listings by uploading floor plans to the website of Swiss 3-D provider Archilogic, which has launched a giveaway coinciding with Real Estate Connect.

The free models are only available for a single floor, so they won’t capture all of a multilevel home.

Real estate agents who submit floor plans to Archilogic’s website by Jan. 30 can expect to receive a model within 24 hours.

Like products offered by Matterport, Floored and InsideMaps, Archilogic’s models let users wander around virtual spaces, much like  a video game.

Users can move furniture around inside Archilogic’s models using a powerful virtual staging tool. InsideMaps has released a similar tool, while Floored and Matterport have their own versions in development.

Archilogic is generating models of listings with floor plans for the Swiss listing portal newhome.ch, and says it’s in talks to do the same for other listing portals around the world.

The company has received multiple business inquiries from one major U.S. listing portal, according to Kaspar Helfrich, a co-founder of Archilogic. Helfrich declined to name the company.

Archilogic creates its models using an API (application programming interface) to process floor plans into bare-bones 3-D models that team members then touch up into more polished versions.

The company’s API has made the process of producing a 3-D model “an order of magnitude faster and cheaper” than in the past, when 3-D providers needed much more processed data than simple floor plans to render models, Jasper said.

“This is a seriously disruptive technology for real estate,” Jasper said. “These models potentially make 3-D virtual reality models cheaper than digital photographs — or for the next days, free.”
