Six Essential Tips for Using BIM Models in AR

Augmented reality allows construction workers to visualise BIM data over a physical site, dramatically reducing rates of errors and rework. Join our expert presenters and learn everything you need to "know before you go" for reliable, accurate results, every time - no coding required.

VDC Masterclass: Using Augmented Reality for QA/QC on Construction Sites

Using AR to visualize CAD/BIM data on a live construction site is not just a futuristic concept - nowadays, it's a reality. But where do you begin? In this webinar for VDC professionals, you'll learn the entire end-to-end process of how to set up, configure and visualize your own data, augmented over a physical site, using a Hololens or iPad - in order to facilitate QA/QC and reduce rework.

Virtual Reality for Safety Training and Site Induction

VR training has a number of advantages over traditional or on-site training methods, allowing you to save time, money and in the case of safety training, even save lives.

Learn how to use Unity’s VR solutions to create your own immersive safety training application, with no coding or prior experience needed.
