VR: Virtually Revolutionary

By |2018-11-06T21:08:47+00:00June 5th, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Over the last few years, Virtual Reality (VR) has gone from the realm of science fiction to an everyday entertainment and office technology. VR has particularly unique potential to disrupt the field of architecture. In the same way that the move from traditional paper drafting techniques to computer-based CAD systems, and from 2D to 3D, opened up new design options, the move from CAD to BIM is equally momentous. Suddenly, designers are able to move through the structures and interiors they create before the foundation is even set, allowing them to identify potential issues and costly delays before they [...]

As an architect, you use a portfolio of your work to communicate your individual style and brand to your prospects and clients. In recent years, professionals have moved away from presenting their work on paper form to using a digital portfolio, primarily because it is simpler and more cost effective to update and maintain. A digital portfolio can consist of JPEGs, text, and video, and may be shared in different forms, such as an app, a PDF, or a web-hosted collection. But with the advent of Virtual Reality (VR) technology, architects can now create an immersive portfolio of work to [...]

3D Modeling: BIM vs. VIM

By |2018-11-06T21:09:00+00:00April 23rd, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Modern architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals are no strangers to using 3D modeling to help bring their imaginative visions to life. The technology offers creatives a way of crafting an immersive, easily navigable and interactive experience that can be used to explore various design concepts. Recent advancements in optical systems even allow users to strap on a virtual reality headset and perform next-level walkthroughs so that clients get a better feel for what the final product will look like. AEC professionals embracing 3D modeling have likely come across the terms BIM and VIM in their work. So what is [...]
