We at vCAD aren't the only ones who see the potential benefits in using 3D Visualization. The Civil FX team has outlines some amazing benefits they have come across in their own work. Read the full article below.
The need to visualize and represent architectural designs has been around forever. Communication between designers and clients has always been an important part of the design process. 2D renderings and drawings have played this role for a long time. Now, new technologies are being integrated into the process in order to not only communicate, but engage clients and customers as well. Read more below about how 3D visualization is aiding the design process.
For homes or units that are not built yet, Matterport or other 3D scanned image software can't be used. Instead, they have to rely on 2D renderings or actually wait until a unit or home is fully built and staged in order to sell it. With VR and 3D visualization, clients are able to walk throughout the whole unit- or jump from place to place. All materials, furniture, appliances, etc. can be changed out to show different options that the developers offer!

As Millennials become the majority of the population, it's becoming increasingly important to respond to the needs and trends of this generation. Not only is this seen in the type of homes Millennials are interested in buying or renting, as written about below, but also in the way they buy or rent a home. What does that process look like for this generation?
There are a lot of different types of visualization that can bee used to create a 3D-like experience. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are at the forefront of discussions in all fields and everyone wants it. What must be made clear is the difference between virtual reality experiences and 360 images. While initially these experiences are very similar, the two visualization types are very different.
Owners in many instances need to sell to internal customers. For example, hospitals need to have physician buy-in for surgery rooms, admin offices, patient rooms, etc. VR and 3D Visulaization gives them an opportunity to collaborate and gain agreement prior to build. Thus, they feel valued, post build changes are minimized and multiple teams can be brought together. No need to interpret off of blueprints.
When it comes to applying VR for Real Estate Developers and Constructors as part of the Design-Build process, the rules of engagement are very different. Over the past year or so there has been a lot of discussion regarding VR and its strengths and weaknesses. In reviewing a large number of these articles we’ve found that either these points of view are speaking very broadly about the VR industry as a whole or very specifically about VR gaming. There are significantly different assumptions when specifically applying VR to a Design and Build workflow.
