Fastest growing VR use case for mechanical engineering

It can be a daunting task to validate deliverables into existing building masses. With Vrex, you can achieve a quicker and improved decision-making process towards your clients, while also enabling prefabrication.

Get clients to validate your solutions digitally. integrate the detailed models into a point cloud scans of the existing building mass and present it using Vrex.

For firms that specialize in areas that require in-dept understanding and overview early in the project to engineer and present custom solutions for their clients, Vrex is a game-changer.

Vrex can provide your clients with a comprehensive understanding of any proposed mechanical solution within the context of the existing building mass. Increased clarity leads to a quicker and more confident decision-making process.

Shared understanding

Utilizing point cloud scanning, intricate details of an existing building mass is captured in 3D, for use in both engineering of the solution and the presentations to your clients

The proposed mechanical solution is then modelled and combined with the scanned environment before it is presented in the context of existing building mass through Vrex. This provides the best possible understanding of the solution for your clients and the project team and aligns expectations.

Once approved, the solution could be precisely prefabricated offsite, ensuring a seamless onsite installation with minimal welding and refitting.

High level process

  1. 3D scan of the existing building mass.
  2. Project Team and Stakeholders enters the scan through Vrex, to check access, spot challenges, understand requirements and plan solution.
  3. A detailed solution is designed in the preferred authoring tool and integrated into the scan.
  4. Vrex is used to review and validate the solutions with the client, and ultimately get an approval based on the digital model.
  5. Prefabrication can then be done off site
  6. Assembly on site with practically no welding or refitting
Think of Vrex as your project's communication platform — like a virtual Situation Room. Vrex takes your 3D data, whether it's BIM, CAD, or Point Clouds, and makes it available as a digital room.

Benefits and value proposition

  • Better understanding: Gain a better understanding of the project by stepping into the project. View the proposed solution in the context of existing building mass.
  • Improved decision making: By using Vrex as the “situation room” for discussions and decisions it enables the client to make better, more confident decisions earlier in the project, through the increased level of understanding.
  • Interactive communication: Having interactive discussions within the project models improves the clarity of communication and minimizes potential misunderstandings.
  • Prefabrication and easy installations: Ideally, you can get the client to sign off on the proposed solutions before construction begins. By doing that the delivery can be based on prefabrication, greatly reducing the need for welding, refitting, and discussions about the solution on site.
