Scaffolding software expert Avontus Software announced the launch of its new app for Microsoft HoloLens.
The latest launch from Avontus delivers a view of scaffolding in a form being dubbed Mixed Reality (MR). MR projects a 3D scaffold model onto the view of its users’ surroundings to enable interactions to take place. The model can be rotated, scaled and placed anywhere. It can also be viewed 1:1 meaning the scaffolding can be shown at actual scale on the structure it is providing access to.
Avontus support specialist Shaun Whyman said: “Even when using traditional 2D and even 3D drawings, a scaffolding company’s customers often don’t understand how scaffolding is supposed to work, let alone what it’s going to look like.”
Andrew Smith, the sales director for Avontus, added: “MR and VR help to bring proposed works to life, without any extra work. As a result, customers are reporting up to a 15 per cent increase in contract wins.”
