Virtual reality software can be an extremely powerful tool for AEC industries, allowing them to create immersive, 3D representations of their designs that clients can experience as if they were walking through the building. Here are some popular virtual reality software for architecture:
- Autodesk Revit: This software is widely used in the architecture industry for building information modeling (BIM) and can be integrated with virtual reality tools for immersive design experiences.
- SketchUp: A 3D modeling software is widely used in the architecture industry. It's known for its user-friendly interface and offers a wide range of tools and features for designing and modeling buildings.
- Unity: Unity is a powerful game engine that can also be used for creating virtual reality experiences. It's a popular choice for architects who want to create immersive, interactive models of their buildings.
- Enscape: A plugin that can be used with various design software, such as Revit, SketchUp, and Rhino, to generate real-time renderings and virtual reality walkthroughs.
- IrisVR: IrisVR is a dedicated virtual reality software that allows architects to quickly and easily create VR walkthroughs of their designs.
These are only a few of the numerous virtual reality software for architecture that are readily available. It's crucial to pick software that is appropriate for your goals and level of expertise, and to confirm that it works with the other programmes and tools you're utilizing during the design process.
ProtoTech has used some of the above software’s in meeting the client requirements.
- ProtoTech developed a JSON exporter plugin on Revit platform which provides VR experience. It allows users to actually roam inside the building/structure (any model) and feel their presence virtually there, by getting a 360 degree view.
- ProtoTech has been successful in giving the user, a virtual mall shopper, a realistic experience. Users could navigate through virtual malls along with their friends and families located at different locations across the globe for shopping purposes.
- HELIX RE is a platform for creating and delivering digital twins for buildings. For them, ProtoTech created a revit addin that creates a 3D Revit model from entity data.
