Autodesk, Revit’s creators, have recently launched Revit® Live – a cloud service which turns 3D models into an immersive experience. Revit® Live allows you to move around a scene using room-scale virtual reality (VR), where you are actually able to physically move within the space. By replicating real-world movement, this type of virtual reality makes everything seem more real than a VR room's self-contained environment or seated/standing VR.
BBC2 caught up with this technology recently in its hit show, ‘Your Home Made Perfect’. The architecture makeover show harnesses the power of 3D CAD, combined with virtual reality headsets, and takes homeowners through two competing, barnstorming visions of their upgraded and extended properties.
