Workshop on Big Screens and VR for AEC
Scalable Display Technologies is pleased to invite you to a half-day workshop on collaborative work in construction and architecture. We will focus on the comparative advantages of different types of immersive displays for collaborative work. The workshop will meet at the "Scalable Studio", a world-class center of innovation for projection-based display technology. Dr. Jeffrey Jacobson of ConstructionVR will lead presentations and discussion. We will work with the following displays: A three-walled CAVE, with stero and tracking in WorldViz. Stereo-only with MiddleVR. A cylinder (160-degrees). Large Screen Displays. Pen-enabled super whiteboard, the HuddleWall. The HTC Vive, a high-end head-mounted display. The GearVR, the best cellphone based HMD available. The Microsoft Hololens A tablet computer enabled with an augmented reality application. We will demonstrate the fundamental attributes of each big screen display, with hands-on demonstrations of AEC specific work examples, including: Finished architecture. The type of BIM models used in construction coordination. Life-scale projection, like that at the Odeh Engineering's BIM Wall. Software used in AEC on big screen displays, such as Revit, Synchro, and schedule and financial diagrams often used in meetings. Comparison with the head-mounted displays. Most importantly, at least half of the workshop time will be devoted to experimentation and discussion. You are the experts in your business and together we will create the knowledge of how to put these displays to their best use. Some questions we will answer, in part: When to use or not use head tracking in the CAVE? It's great for the person with the tracker. Not so much for everyone else in the room. Does 3D imaging matter? And when? When the CAVE is not running VR is an effective workspace with other software? What are the practical uses for the Hololens, today? It is the 10th workshop in a series that began one year ago. We will have a lot of new and follow-on material for attendees of previous workshops, but it will be quite accessible for newcomers.
