Virtual Reality (VR) provides an unprecedented opportunity to maximize collaboration, efficiency and workflow in the design of buildings. Beyond its usefulness as a visualization tool, the true power of VR lies in its potential to shape and enhance decision making process through the ability to experience models at a real scale, annotate and change designs in real time, and enhance coordination through visual meetings.
Each VR session is proving to be much more powerful than renderings, as the user can freely explore the environment and experience the building. This allows for a feedback loop to architects and designers, who can then adjust the design as required.
- Conduct design review sessions with Virtual Reality offering architects and designers all types of new stream information to tap into to make the projects more efficient and more responsive to their intended audience.
- Generate interactive 3D environments from BIM model, combined with interaction to record user data, analyze how users and operators navigate the architectural space and adjust design to accommodate the common path of movement.
- Combine 360 virtual tours and BIM models for the presentation of projects, mainly using Autodesk 3ds Max and Unreal Engine.
