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.
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.
- 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.
