CDM Smith to Present Webinar on Mixed Reality Technology
Imagine being able to walk through your facility before it’s ever built, to understand how your design is evolving and identify changes now before they become issues later. Thanks to immersive mixed reality, this is now possible. CDM Smith (Boston, Massachusetts) will be presenting a complimentary webinar on mixed reality on Tuesday, November 7, at 2 p.m. EST (1 p.m. CST).
Using tools like Microsoft Corporation’s wearable HoloLens computer allows an entire project team to be placed inside a facility model at scale.
Scott Aldridge, innovation and disruptive technologies leader at CDM Smith, says, “Mixed reality allows us to, at scale, immerse ourselves inside the environment. It's very impactful visually when you are able to be in a room that you're designing, rather than looking at a 3-D image on a 2-D screen.”
Mixed reality tools like HoloLens are streamlining processes by allowing all team members to look at the same 3-D model, discuss and make changes instantaneously. “We've created a platform by which we can take any 3-D model that we have, drop it into this platform and immediately create an experience where the engineers, constructors, clients, any stakeholders can communicate and collaborate in the environment that's being designed or built,” says Aldridge.
Join CDM Smith for this informative webinar on November 7 to learn more about mixed reality technology and how it can help you. CDM Smith’s experts will discuss how the HoloLens creates new ways for you to visualize the design, share information, identify issues and make changes throughout a project. They also will discuss other processes and technologies--from clash detection to 4-D modeling to 3-D laser scanning and more-- that will help you more effectively design, build and operate your infrastructure.
