Autodesk Inc., a world leader in 3D design software for entertainment, natural resources, manufacturing, engineering, construction, and civil infrastructure, announced the version 1.7 of Revit Live (formerly Autodesk LIVE). LIVE is the game-changing, cloud-based service that transforms your Revit model into an interactive experience, in just one click. Rather than just seeing your model, LIVE lets you experience it.If one click automates complex Building Information Modeling (BIM) data processing, what could Autodesk achieve with a second click? As of today, two clicks from Revit transports you into virtual reality (VR) using the latest LIVE release, currently in beta. The first click takes you from Revit to the LIVE cloud service, where your model is transformed into an interactive experience. A second click in the LIVE editor or LIVE viewer toggles VR viewing on and off.
That’s right. Revit to VR in two clicks. No need to code. No need to wait. We’ve made it available and affordable for the architects and virtual design and construction (VDC) Revit professionals looking to implement VR. So, if you’ve got a system that can support HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, you’re ready for Autodesk LIVE for VR.Anyone who’s created VR content experiences understands this significance. It’s yet another way Autodesk is helping architects and VDC professionals step inside their design, and better communicate their vision – all while supporting an accessible, democratic design process.
