IrisVR Prospect works with the modeling software you already use to launch your 3D models into virtual reality (VR). Currently, Prospect supports SketchUp, Revit, Rhino, Grasshopper, and OBJ files.

SketchUp

SketchUp is one of the most widely used 3D modeling programs. It’s perfect for fast and easy 3D modeling; SketchUp gives users the basics they need to bring designs to life.

3D models from SketchUp are compatible with Prospect. Simply import your Sketchup model into Prospect and launch your file. You’ll immediately go into virtual reality via your HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset. No extra conversions necessary.

 

Revit

Revit takes users from concept to visualization with modeling tools for every stage of a project. With features for architectural design, structural engineering, and construction, the software can be used by any member of the project team in planning, constructing or managing buildings and infrastructure.

Models made in Revit are compatible with Prospect. Simply drag and drop your BIM files into your Prospect library and then launch your file moments later. You’ll immediately be transported into virtual reality via your HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset – no extra conversions necessary.

Prospect includes several features that are compatible with Revit. Prospect imports your Viewpoints into the model, allowing you to easily jump between rooms and views. The Inspect Element tool allows you to review basic information about each object in your model, which can be flagged and noted for revision.

 

Navisworks

Autodesk’s Navisworks project review software provides a comprehensive view of integrated models to make communication and project planning easy among AEC professionals. Built for preconstruction, this software lets you examine BIM data, run clash detection, perform model simulation and animation, and more.

Navisworks can be used with Prospect to bring 3D models into virtual reality (VR). The current Prospect + Navisworks beta plugin supports basic geometry and file structure export to be used alongside our existing Prospect features. This means you can flag elements, make annotations, section your model, and more. As we continue to develop this beta we plan to bring in more advanced BIM data into VR.

 

Rhino

Rhino, the world’s most versatile 3D modeler, handles complicated projects with ease. Rhino software is compatible with Prospect, so you can view your models in VR with the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. Simply drag and drop Rhino files into the Prospect library or use the Rhino plugin to launch your VR walkthrough. Your VR experience will provide an accurate, true-to-scale preview of your project. As a result, you can make informed and fast decisions about your project.

 

Grasshopper

Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor that serves as a plug-in to Rhino modeling tools. It is easy to use and requires no knowledge of programming or scripting. Users can drag components onto the canvas to create 3D geometry with nearly perfect curvature for more realistic designs.

Grasshopper can be used with Prospect, which brings your 3D models into virtual reality (VR) with the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. Grasshopper’s parametric geometry and data visualization adds to Prospect features such as true-to-scale modeling, easy annotating, and toggling between layers to highlight design options.

 

OBJ

OBJ files are compatible with Prospect and can be viewed in virtual reality. Users who build their models in 3DS Max, Maya, AutoCad 3D or Blender will often upload their files into Prospect as an OBJ file. This allows for easy integration into a seamless VR experience that will bring your model to life. You can view VR experiences in Prospect with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

 

FBX

FBX is an asset exchange format that works with 3ds Max, Maya, MotionBuilder, and more, letting users integrate smoothly between modeling software. FBX files can be viewed in virtual reality using Prospect and an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
