About this app
If you are an architect or designer using Autodesk® Revit®, you may have dreamt of bringing your models to life in augmented reality or virtual reality. With the AR VR for Autodesk® Revit® plugin, that dream can now become a reality. This powerful plugin allows you to publish your Revit® models to AR and VR, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for exploring and presenting your designs.
How it Works
Installing the AR VR for Autodesk® Revit® plugin is a breeze. Simply open Revit® and navigate to the Ribbon bar, where you will find the plugin tab. Load your desired model, set the view that will be the initial view in VR, and click on the "Convert to AR VR" button. The plugin will then generate a folder on your system.
To experience your model in AR or VR, transfer the converted folder to your mobile or tablet device. Install the free Android App, Epic AR VR, and browse for the exported file "*.unitydata". From there, you can choose whether you want to load the model for augmented reality or virtual reality.
It's important to note that the AR VR for Autodesk® Revit® plugin currently supports devices that are compatible with augmented reality. For a list of supported devices, you can refer to the official Google AR website.
One of the standout features of this plugin is the one-time export option for both augmented and virtual reality. This means that once you convert your model, you can easily share it with clients, colleagues, or anyone else who wants to experience your design in AR or VR. And since the files are stored locally, you have complete control over their security.
Another advantage of the AR VR for Autodesk® Revit® plugin is its quick load time in AR and VR. Gone are the days of waiting for your model to load or experiencing lag during presentations. This plugin ensures a seamless and immersive experience.
The generated AR VR files also have a small file size, making them easy to transfer and share. Additionally, you have the option to control the quality and size of the files, allowing you to strike the perfect balance between performance and visual fidelity.
While the current version of the plugin does not support texture in materials, it does offer the ability to control colors and materials. This is a great feature for showcasing different design options or highlighting specific elements of your model.
If you only want to publish selected model items, the AR VR for Autodesk® Revit® plugin has you covered. This flexibility allows you to focus on the key aspects of your design without overwhelming your audience with unnecessary details.
