Here we present not only the new generation of mixed reality headsets in combination with a leap motion sensor, but also the possibility to have a view on a BIM model in a virtual world and to interact only with your hands.

Equipment:
The new MixedReality headsets offer a higher resolution than the previous VR devices. This offers the opportunity to enjoy a sharper VR experience. In addition, the headsets no longer need an external sensor to detect their own position and rotation in space.

Further, we have equipped the headset with a Leap-Motion sensor. This allows to recognize one's own hands and interact with them in the virtual world. We have taken over the implemented functions of the Leap-Motion from our previous project rewoT.

We would like to thank the Revit User Group for providing the model.

Project schedule:

  • From the BIM model, all invisible parts (such as electrical wiring, piping, e.g.) have been disabled to optimize computational power.
  • In 3ds Max, the polygons of our assets were minimized and optimized for VR usage.
  • The interactions should work independently of controllers, purely through the movement of the hands. We already had experience with the Leap-Motion sensor during our last project rewoT.
  • Starting in a showroom looking at the overall model. This room also provides the technical plans of the building.
  • In order to be able to teleport to different rooms of the model a menu shows up by looking into the left hand palm.
  • Presentation at the conference "Grazer Baubetriebs- und Baurechtsseminar" Bad Blumau on 19 and 20 January 2018.
At the Construction and Building Law Seminar, there were interesting discussions about the possibilities of the future applications of Building Information Modeling in relation to the virtual world. We are looking forward to implement our ideas and thank the Institute for Construction Management and Economics (Graz University of Technology) for the opportunity to present our research at this seminar.
