A new app from Avontus Software lets users ‘travel’ through scaffold drawings in a virtual reality (VR) environment.
Users of the new Scaffold VR app can view and rotate 3D scaffold drawings in VR from a smartphone using Google Cardboard – a simple and inexpensive VR viewer. Even without a viewer such as Google Cardboard, the Scaffold VR app allows users to navigate through a rendered 3D environment and view the scaffold design from any direction on a Windows desktop.
By virtually walking through a design, users can explore the scaffold step by step without having to put up a single bay on-site. This walk-through will provide the opportunity to catch planning mistakes and ensure the scaffold is designed correctly, avoiding costly rework from delays and cost overruns.
The Scaffold VR app is available for iPhone or Android smartphones, or a Windows desktop.
