New integration allows AEC teams to collaborate on BIM content in VR/AR from anywhere
VR/AR collaboration platform, The Wild, has released an integration with Autodesk BIM 360, which will allow AEC teams to coordinate and collaborate on their BIM 360-hosted models, in an immersive virtual or augmented reality workspace.
Simply by authenticating their BIM 360 account from The Wild’s app, customers can create a virtual workspace from any model in their BIM 360 account. Once authenticated, The Wild remains synced with BIM 360, so the workspaces and the models will always be up to date in both applications. This creates a ‘single source of truth’ that project teams can access from anywhere they have an internet connection.
The Wild is a little different to other architectural VR software in that it allows users to rapidly sketch out ideas in real time. There are native tools for sketching, massing, material sampling, video import, 2D image capture, and speech-to-text annotations.
The Wild’s roadmap includes a range of new features for AEC workflows, such as BIM information display, issue tracking/syncing, and layer support.
In addition to BIM 360, The Wild has native support for Autodesk Revit.
