Designing Steel Buildings with Virtual Reality & Rendering Technology
Thanks to our advanced 3D rendering programs, you can see what your building will look like before it’s even built
Virtual reality technology is constantly advancing and impacting our lives – and the metal building construction industry is no different. We use leading edge technology giving you the ability to turn a 3D BIM model into an immersive, real world experience for your customers using virtual reality and augmented reality.
Virtual reality provides a better sense of scale than on-screen and paper models, and thanks to our advanced 3D rendering programs, you can see exactly what a building is going to look like before it’s even built, ensuring there are no unwanted surprises along the way.
We offer a variety of dynamic 3D presentation tools that can transform your building ideas into a real-world experience. Our team can partner with you to provide dynamic 3D presentation methods using the following technology:
- SketchUp & SketchUp Pro : 3D Renderings
- Google Cardboard : Virtual Reality
- Microsoft HoloLens : Augmented Reality
- Oculus Rift : Virtual Reality
Your 3D renderings can be enhanced using SketchUp or SketchUp Pro
Further enhance your 3D eQuote renderings by importing your file into SketchUp or SketchUp Pro. This will allow you to graphically enrich your building model by adding signage, landscaping, cars, and other 3D items to make your renderings as true to life as possible.
Experience a virtual reality with your smart phone & Google Cardboard
Using Google Cardboard you can have easy access to a virtual 3D rendering of your metal building. The VR technology lets you increase and decrease the size of your renderings as needed, and provide a 360 degree view of your building.
Oculus Rift allows you to explore a lifelike holographic model of your building
Using Oculus Rift, you can explore an incredibly lifelike holographic model of your building. With headgear tethered to a computer, you are placed virtually within a lifelike model your building, and using a remote can move around freely.
With Microsoft HoloLens you have an untethered interior and exterior view of your building
With HoloLens, you have the ability to walk around inside a 3D hologram of your building, fully untethered, so you will know exactly what to expect once construction begins. The headset contains multiple sensors, advanced optics, and special holographic processing that allows you to zoom, rotate and move through your rendering using simple hand gestures.
