Large, ambitious projects require planning, drawings, and intense collaboration between many parties. However, whether large or small, most projects find it challenging to achieve a true sense of space when visualizing a complex environment or situation.
How expansive will the room’s layout seem once built? Is the space between these elements sufficient for comfortable movement? What are the sight-lines from this location or that one? What will it actually feel like to walk through the space after it’s finished?
These are common questions asked by those about to embark on significant project investments. While 3D rendering and seated-in-place VR technology have made advances in this area, both methods often fail to facilitate a true sense of space, parallax motion, and a visual understanding of project objectives.
We offer the following unique advantages in project pre-visualization:
- File Conversion Assistance
Our DreamTrace™ visioneers will help convert your architectural and design files into a fully rendered VR environment, ready for you to explore.
- Free Form Movement
Visit a DreamTrace™ location and our visioneers will serve the VR environment on one of our spacious DreamStages (2,500+ sq. ft. in size) enabling you to move physically through a life-sized, three-dimensional representation of your project. Up to six people can share the VR experience simultaneously on a single stage.
- ArcViz™ Collaboration
While in the VR environment, your team will be able to use our proprietary ArcViz™ software tools to point at objects, take pictures, draw and annotate, take measurements of the environment, and record voice notes.
- Take Assets with you
After your VR pre-visualization experience, DreamTrace™ will provide you with all the still images and digital audio files that your team captured during the VR session. We will also deliver a stand-alone file enabling you to “fly through” your project on a PC (in 3D rather than in VR).
