Understanding industry trends and new Revit developments are two of the most important parts of our work. Midwest University is one of several conferences we attend to stay up-to-date on what’s new while sharing our own product advancements and ideas on how VR and AR will move the industry forward. This year’s conference will allow us to explore the future of the industry, connect with users face to face, and learn in these classes:
Being able to explore and understand your projects spatially is one of the strengths of virtual reality in the AEC industry. What makes the use case even more compelling is the ability to confidently make informed design decisions based on the tools and visuals available. One such tool is Sun Settings in Prospect, which makes use of location data ingrained in your files to produce accurate direct lighting in VR for daylighting studies.
About Friis & Moltke
European architecture firm Friis & Moltke has incorporated virtual reality into their last eight projects, and they've become experts in immersive design and review. We spoke with their team to see how they use virtual reality to engage clients and improve upon previous workflows.
Our latest update to Prospect Pro lets users export a list of flagged elements as a CSV file for later review. This feature can help you and your team have more efficient review sessions using your BIM model. Below, we outline the steps to get started and specific workflows for Revit, Dynamo, and Navisworks to VR.
Barton Malow Company (BMC) is the construction manager on a new 140,000 square foot expansion of Romeo High School. New facilities include a gym, theater, auditorium, kitchen, commons area, more classrooms, and renovations to the existing building.

Imagine this: you have an important client meeting tomorrow and your boss is asking for a perfect VR experience to show off your latest trillion square foot project. The computer can barely rotate the model on screen and you don't know if you can view your 3D model in VR. What do you do?
This post is the third of four on how quality assurance and quality review processes can be augmented with virtual reality and immersive review.
