Virtual reality isn't just for video games anymore. In fact, VR has multiple uses in architecture, engineering, and construction, and as the technology becomes more widely available, AEC professionals are discovering just how impactful VR experiences can be on purpose-built BOXX VR workstations.

Although virtual reality has been around for some time, what's changed for AEC professionals is the availability and refinement of the technology. For example, headset makers like Oculus and HTC have developed consumer-friendly apparatuses that have opened up a new world of VR capabilities. Other key developments for AEC include employing headsets to immerse stakeholders in a presentation, or to help them gain a further appreciation for the details and specifics of a 3D model. With continued room for growth in VR's usability and versatility, get ahead of the curve with a BOXX APEXX VR ready workstation that can harness the raw power of the technology.

VR & CAD Design

The potential of using VR and CAD applications like Revit or 3ds Max is an enticing one for AEC professionals. With intricate modeling functions and richly textured visuals, the outcomes could be astounding. However, before diving into VR and CAD, you have to understand the optimal workstation configurations needed to support those workflows. CAD software is predominantly single-threaded, meaning core frequency is the primary performance driver. VR, on the other hand, relies on game engine technology that requires high-end graphics capabilities for a seamless experience.

Get the best of both worlds with a BOXX VR ready workstation like the APEXX S3. Featuring a performance tuned Intel® Core™ i7 or i9 CPU, APEXX S3 can also support up to two NVIDIA RTX™ GPUs and 128GB of memory. Also recommended is the AMD Ryzen™ based APEXX A3 with two professional graphics cards, and 128GB of RAM.

Mobile VR

One obvious use of VR in architecture, engineering, and construction is the process of stakeholder collaboration. When everyone has the same experience using VR, professionals can more easily communicate designs and coordinate their analysis. This also requires you to be on-the-go and in need of a virtual reality laptop capable of handling the demands of VR. GoBOXX SLM VR is an ideal solution for this task, coupling computing power with an NVIDIA RTX™ GPU.
