Unite, held recently in Austin, Texas, is the annual developer conference for Unity – the market leading platform for creating video games, simulations, and other interactive 3D, 2D and VR/AR content. Artists, developers, educators, filmmakers, researchers, storytellers came together in early October to gain valuable insight and inspiration. The Unite 2017 conference took place at the Austin Convention Center and included two full days of breakouts and a memorable expo. The entire Unity community experienced the excitement and inspiration of Unite around the world, as it was broadcast live directly from Unity’s studio booth located in the social hub of the expo hall.

Attending Unite 2017 was such a memorable experience for VIM AEC that we wanted to take a moment to reflect on what made it so special. The highlight of the conference was the team’s well-received presentation of our unique technology on the Expo mainstage. VIM AEC enjoyed this opportunity to present advanced visualization technology that can help the AEC building market take CAD Data into an interactive real-time world. With this VR tech, based on a working Revit model, architects, designers, contractors and manufactures can freely walk about their building before they even begin a project. It was very exciting to connect with other industry leaders and find a large number of firms very keen and interested in our technology.

VIM AEC is the Unity technology and distribution partner supporting the AEC market with leading edge technology where your Revit files into an interactive 3D gaming/VR technology with cloud solutions to bring together various building design environments for BIM/CAD workflows. When someone has their first experience of walking through a 3D visualization and interacting with the design of a building, the impact is incredible. VIM AEC has created an inspirational tool that is changing the way the sector works. Models from Autodesk Revit can be uploaded into the VIM, and the Revit files are transformed into a VIM producing a high definition, free roam 3D, walk-through environment. The platform is fast and flexible enough to allow designs to be updated quickly.

VIM AEC’s cloud platform is also unique, as it enables users to go directly from CAD to VR + PC + MAC platforms. With a suite of tools that provides Virtual Information Modeling through visualization, data analytics and collaboration to the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, VIM AEC relished the opportunity to connect with other innovators using the advanced Unity engine to drive new applications forward.
