MetricMonkey is developed on Rhino 6 and Grasshopper 1.0 and runs natively on your PC. This means the end user can customise the software to their needs. The software works for documents in metres or millimetres and is designed to work at all scales from a single building to multiple buildings over multiple sites. It works with 3D topography and is designed to be intuitive and responsive. The user simply needs to draw 2D polygons and define certain metrics.
Buildings for example can be controlled by specifying the desired number of storeys or the maximum building height. All other settings such as floor-to-floor heights are control via the dashboard under the settings tab. Site boundaries are defined in terms of plot number, maximum FSR allowed, and maximum site coverage. The software automatically numbers buildings based on the plot in which it resides.
