Assemble is a great program to help with visual understanding in the estimate phase of a project.

Like the title says, it does a great job to help visually understand what is being proposed in the design for the project. When often the drawings can get messy and unclear in a 2D view, this program helps put the building in 3D and allows you to alter the view for a clearer understanding. I love that you can create multiple views for the project that show different aspects (i.e. walls/partitions, specialties and equipment, plumbing, etc.). It is also very convenient that the 3D view can work with the 2D drawings so you can click on things in either window to see where it is located in the drawing.
What do you dislike?
There is so much that this program can do, but it is hard cramming it all in one little window. There are times when I want to see the 3D view, the drawings, the schedule, AND the materials and it can get crowded at times. Maybe I need a bigger monitor but that is something that can be aggravating at times. I use the program online and there are also times when I change something and want to undo but have yet to figure it out. In addition, if the architects send over a messy file, it can be fairly inconvenient for us, the general contractors, to make sense of the drawings if they did not clarify things as intended for this program. So if the architects are willing to work with you on their revit design, then it is worth it.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I highly recommend this program for anyone who deals with project viewing on the daily, worth it!
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Assemble is doing so much to benefit me and my team by helping clarify what items are what on projects and what quantities to use. It runs smoothly and is very technologically advanced.
The best tool we've seen thus far

The ability to access our data beyond the authoring tool has been a huge breakthrough. Navisworks contains the data, but it is not easily accessible or exportable. Assemble has been able to accomplish both of those feats with a great web-based viewer.
What do you dislike?
The additional publishing requirement is a downside. I'm hopeful that in the future, any models that are cloud hosted can be automatically published to assemble without using the local machines resources. Publish times can sometimes be in the 3-4 hour range (rendering your computer unavailable for other CAD work).
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are a company that is looking to gain access to your model data, then assemble could be the tool for you. If you have access to 3D models during bid time, then Assemble could streamline your estimating process.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Progress tracking has been the biggest challenge assemble has enabled us to solve. We take that data and compare it to our budgets to get more accurate earned value tracking metrics.

The spped and efficiency of color coding and puling quantity and property data from model elements. The superb viewer tha can function on tablet as wellas desk tops and the ability to restructure data for estimators are a plus. Th greatest value we have found in tracking versions of model changes.
What do you dislike?
Sometimes the server can lockup, at least it did in the past as we loaded larger models. We think this has been improved over time as server technology on how it was supported was improved. We wish we could highlight elements in a drawing not modeled, but merelky anotated. We also wish we could look at multiple buildiong models as they relate to each other and adjust the orbit point different than what was in the native models.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Be sure to do a quality review of your model before publishing to Assemble.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Extractions and change deviation for model comparisons suring hard bid sitautions as well as showingt change deviation and explaining what just changed to an owner. We have alos used it for sucessfull value engineering efforts.
