CADwalk: life-size MR-AR-VR design experience Optimising and validating unbuilt environments
This presentation will look at the mix of technologies available for allowing teams to visualise unbuilt environments.
Many people have difficulties understanding scaled down CAD plans and most have poor spatial awareness, which leads to difficulty in the decision-making process. Designing future spaces just became much more exciting as technology moves us away from print drawings and screen images, to a real-time, life-size user experience.
CADwalk’s patented technology allows a team to walk through an unbuilt environment in life size scale. Team work is conducted in this Mixed Reality environment and is then pushed directly to VR systems for validation and review of finely detailed content.
The integration of mixed interactive visualisation technologies during the design optimisation and validation phase provides opportunities for all stakeholders to create and validate a range of potential layouts, thus cutting costs and risks, when designing spaces that facilitate the complex interaction between people and technology, ergonomics and optimum workflow.
