This video lays out all the current features of vCAD and what it can do! From a 2D drawing to a freely navigable model vCAD offers clean visualization. Explore models in 3D mode or Virtual Reality.
There are many tools and apps out there – to the point that it can be hard to know what is what, and what you need. What is the best platform to navigate a design? If you choose to explore VR, what is the best VR app? We aim to help streamline the decision making process and, if the best fit, make the vCAD experience as seamless as possible for you.
It’s quite possible that you’ve never heard this term used in a design scenario, professional setting, or perhaps at all. So what does it mean? Pre-reality is the power to see something before it exists, which best describes what vCAD can do for you.
According to founder, Dr. Lee Martin, interactive visualization puts you in control of what you see and the path you take. It’s not a passive experience (such as watching television) as this is your vision and your path of exploration.
The world of a 3D artist is a fascinating and multifaceted one. 3D artists are best known for their work in the video game and movie industries, and can also apply their talents to a wide variety of professional fields.
vCAD lets you and your clients experience designs before they are built – we call this pre-reality! The experience this tool provides elevates the designer-client relationship by improving understanding, communication, clarity, trust, and transparency (just to name a few). As a result, you reach desired goals and project outcomes more easily and efficiently, and everyone is happier.
Virtual reality is a very engaging and immersive experience - often limited to the person wearing the headset. Not the case with vCAD ScreenShare (formerly spectator mode). This functionality allows users to share what they are viewing with a wider audience. vCAD users can turn their phone into a powerful presentation remote control by broadcasting their mobile view. How is this beneficial?
Those in real estate development know that there are great risks and great rewards in the industry. You have identified an ideal property investment before others, which has its challenges. How do you sell a development that has not yet been built? How do you convince prospective customers to buy from looking at a design only?
“It helps our clients to understand – spatially, exactly what we are trying to accomplish. vCAD really helps them to see right off; it puts them IN the space and it lets them know what feels right and what does not. It gives everyone a better understanding of scale – a feeling for ceiling height and for the general size of the space.” - Benji Armstrong, Johnson Architecture
