For designers who use CAD (Computer Aided Design) software there’s going to be a new way to view projects thanks to virtual reality (VR) startup, ImmersaCAD. The fledgling company will be releasing a CAD navigation system that brings CAD files to life through mobile VR tech, and it’ll be debuting the software at next weeks Autodesk University Las Vegas Conference.
Catering to architects, designers, engineers and other creatives, ImmersaCAD is inviting attendees to experience CAD projects in VR whilst getting the opportunity to take home a demonstration on their own smartphone by stopping by the company’s booth.
Anyone who visits the booth and registers for a free 7-day trial will receive a free Google Cardboard and be entered to win a one-year ImmersaCAD subscription.
The ImmersaCAD VR system is completely compatible with a variety of CAD files (from Rhino, SketchUpPro, and other applications) as well as native Revit files. Additionally, it can incorporate Lumion exported materials to improve the visual quality of the VR experience.
“Our holistic ImmersaCAD VR mobile app offers a valuable, realistic project experience which is truly incomparable to other CAD virtual reality options available today because it offers an untethered, mobile, 3D navigation experience,” said Jon Huber, chief technical officer for ImmersaCAD. “Attendees who visit with us at booth number 1672 can share their file and convert it on-site to explore the project in virtual reality while also discovering how they can use virtual reality to refine their daily workflow.”
“This is such an exciting time of growth and progress for us as we start to clearly communicate just how easy it is to convert existing models into VR with the ImmersaCAD mobile app to nurture team collaboration while also serving clients a more compelling, realistic project experience,” said Huber. “We are completely reinventing the way clients and teams experience their design projects by integrating navigable VR effortlessly into their workflow.”
