Virtual Reality

Virtual or Augmented Reality?

Virtual reality is immersive. It places the user in a totally computer generated environment. Augmented reality is the practice of placing computer generated objects in real world surroundings (think, Pokemon Go). If you require a fully explorable model, with full BIM detailing, then our virtual reality solution is perfect. If you want to see what the finished building/structure will look like in the real world environment then talk to us about augmented reality.

Our VR BIM Solution

Building Information Modelling is all about the information. It relates to a building or infrastructure, asset rich in graphical and non-graphical information, created with reference to a 3d model. Imagine a fully immersive environment where each component carries BIM information and can be examined by the user. We can visualise all information for every element in the model as specified by the EIR (Employers Information Requirement) document into the Virtual Reality Model. This gives a totally hands-on approach to BIM (virtually).

The Technology

We use a mixture of softwares to create the perfect solution compatible with all major VR platforms. We utilise game engines such as Unity and Unreal, integrating Revit models and 3ds Max to create "games"/environments for platforms such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear amongst others. We develop on both Apple and Android platforms depending on requirements.
