Virtual Reality

More than just cool technologies, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) are changing how we design, create and experience everything from factories, buildings, and cars to training, learning, and entertainment.

Show an immersive experience with virtual reality in a single click

Virtual reality (VR) has been allowing architects and engineers to create stunning, interactive walkthroughs and provide clients with a realistic sense of how it would feel like to actually experience a simulated environment.

During this video, Kaj Burival, Director of Support and Training, at Enscape will demonstrate how to create a real-time rendering and virtual reality to better visualize, share and construct projects.





Digital Merges With Physical When Virtual Reality Meets BIM

VR helps to extend static BIM images into an immersive virtual world for designers and builders. Read this article on five applications for virtual reality technology in BIM that you’ll see now and in the near future.
