The trio have revealed their new programme Virtual Reality 3D Visual Planning Software, which is being previewed at IMTS 2018. The drag and drop real time design tool has been designed with both small and large spaces in mind. Allowing designers to create a solution for client needs and allowing them the ability to preview it through VR for a live taster.
