VR in Architecture, Engineering and Construction
VR is revolutionising how we experience buildings before they are built, for both the AEC business and its clients. Virtual reality AEC applications are being used in a variety of ways to add value to the design, engineering, and construction industries. We create virtual worlds that give people a powerful sense of presence in another world – the one you’re creating – by utilising the latest 360° video, image, and sound capture technologies.
VR in architecture:
Virtual reality highlights the human aspects of architecture – form, space, and aesthetics – it is an exceptionally effective tool for engaging clients and igniting their passion for a project. Virtual reality architecture visualisations allow the user to walk around realistic locations in which they might work or reside in the future, providing a feeling of perspective that photography cannot. This is a hypnotic, almost miraculous experience. It also allows clients to provide immediate design comments, allowing them to play a far more active role in the creative process.
VR in engineering:
Virtual reality is the most revolutionary design tool since computer-aided design (CAD) for architects and engineers alike. You may gain an immediate feeling of function and feel by immersing yourself in your own projects through 3D modelling and visualizations. Before going live, look for defects and potential threats. Manipulation of items in this virtual world enables more daring ideas and iteration. It’s the pinnacle of prototyping.
VR in construction:
VR offers a strong opportunity for the construction industry to change views of inefficiencies and increase profit margins. Structures can be explored, evaluated, and planned for in detail before anyone steps foot on the construction site by creating construction projects in virtual space. Allow all stakeholders to interact with spaces before the heavy lifting begins, reducing hazards and addressing design modifications before construction begins, saving both time and money.
