Eli Harris has been with vCAD since the beginning. He is a lead developer and a key player with multiple skill sets to offer. His interest in computer science, as well as business, has played a huge role in the success he has reached while at vCAD. He believes in the product because he knows the ins and outs of the whole conversion process since he helped create it. Learn more about Eli below!
"vCAD is a solution that makes it easy, fast and simple to view and share 3D models of spaces that don't exist yet. I can share them on smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops and virtual reality." -Dan Smigrod
Jacob is a recent college graduate and has been a part of the vCAD team since last May. He has brought many skills to the table and has learned many new things to better the company and the product. Currently he is focusing on CAD building and rendering. Jacob is also a Nike athlete for pole vaulting at UT. We caught up with him to see what he thinks about workign at vCAD and what vCAD has to offer.
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.
Previously, we introduced Rachel Hunt – a student of interior architecture and industrial design, and creative director at vCAD since the launch in 2016. This summer she parlayed her experience into an internship at the prestigious SOM design firm in San Francisco.
At first glance, vCAD may seem like a powerful tool mainly for professional use. We’ve shared many examples of how it elevates designs for industry work, as well as communication with colleagues and clients. But we want to let you in on a hot tip: it’s never too early to start using vCAD. It is an amazing tool for students too.
Most of the time, a quick conversion from a 3D model in vCAD is sufficient to explore a design with 3D fly-through or VR. You can roam around freely and view the model from all vantage points, as though it was already built. But perhaps you are ready to create a more realistic environment for your designs.
The vCAD mobile app has been going through some changes recently. Now, it’s officially ready to be called “Coming Soon…”. Look for it on the iPhone App Store and Google Play Store in July 2017. We’ve taken a lot of feedback and worked with a UX team to bring out the best in our app. There are some great new features to tell you about.
