Speckle: open digital infrastructure for designing, making and operating the built environment.

We reimagine the design process from the Internet up: Speckle is an open source (MIT) initiative for developing an extensible Design & AEC data communication and collaboration platform.

Getting started

For developers:

Want to spin up a server? It's not that hard.

Frontend dev work? OpenApi docs are here!

Developing for .NET? We've got a SDK.

Check out example implementations in Rhino/Gh, Dynamo, Blender, Unity, THREE Js and Vue JS.

Ready to use:

Rhino/Grasshopper user? Check out how to get started with the plugins.

Dynamo user? We have a WIP version on the package manager, and some docs.

More to come, when ready™️
