Perform models of any place where people converge

LEGION Model Builder is a simulation and modeling software that enables you to build a precise model of a space that can be simulated and analyzed based on a set of key inputs such as design, demand, and operational data. You can use LEGION Model Builder to run and evaluate virtually any place where people converge such as railway stations, sports stadiums, airports, office complexes, theaters, piazzas, and transport hubs.

LEGION Create Simulation Models

Build models for any type of venue

You can build models for any type of venue or building, such as sports facilities, urban and commercial buildings, and airports. Use automated routing, increased intelligence, and simplified objects to build and audit models. You can easily reuse your data when you define and share objects across projects and teams. An integrated CAD drawing feature allows you to quickly modify your designs.

“LEGION was fundamental and decisive for the successful performance of Corinthians-Itaquera station during the opening game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It provided the fluidity required to safely serve the public.”

Technical Capabilities

General

LEGION Model Builder lets you create predictive models of how a space will be used.

  • Import architectural drawings (CAD) to define physical spaces available for pedestrian use
  • Specify the anticipated pedestrian demand for the space
  • Designate areas where interim activities such as queuing or waiting occur
  • Link operational data to the model
  • Plan routes and automatically lay out navigation maps
  • Export model files for simulation and analysis in LEGION Simulator

Define space characteristics

Define the physical and operational characteristics of the pedestrian environment you need to test, such as designating areas where activities like waiting occur.

Specify population parameters

Populate the model based on activities and characteristics such as size, speed, and personal preferences.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is LEGION Model Builder?

LEGION Model Builder is a simulation and modeling software that enables you to run and evaluate virtually any place where people converge such as railway stations, sports stadiums, airports, office complexes, theaters, piazzas, and transport hubs. An interoperable software, you can easily import building geometry from a large range of CAD/IFC file types. Simply build and audit models with automated routing, increased intelligence, and simplified objects. Easily reuse your data when you define and share objects across projects and teams, and link operational data to the model. Quickly prepare and import your model with data template that is flexible and simple to audit. An integrated CAD drawing feature allows you to quickly modify designs. Reduce your auditing time and make quick updates when you consume data such as destination data and entity types.

How much does LEGION Model Builder cost?

A practitioner license of LEGION Model Builder costs $3,127 USD at Virtuosity.com. Prices vary per region. While there are various types of licensing available, a common choice is the 12-month practitioner license offered through Virtuosity, Bentley’s eCommerce store. When you purchase through Virtuosity you get a Virtuoso Subscription. This means you get the software and Keys (tokens) to redeem for customizable training, mentoring, and consulting services.
