Hi, I am just wondering what you guys & girls are looking at doing with the oculus go when it gets released. I have been using enscape for presentations to both the clients but also the construction crews for the projects I have been working on to give them a clear picture of the build and discuss specific areas that are hard to represent on a flat sheet of paper.
The rift is fine for the client as we are generally making changes on the PC as we go but I want the site foreman to have a VR copy on an oculus go on site that he could refer to at anytime during the build
I would love to be able to upload an enscape VR file to a cloud which could then be accessed by an app on an the oculus go so that the site foreman could have the latest VR available to him.
While enscape is great for the front end of a project (concept/design etc) it could be so much more throughout the entire project life. If you don't build and app for this type of function then we will just end up looking elsewhere to find something that would work but I would obviously much rather stick with enscape for the entire project cause its soooo much better than anything out there at the moment.
I suppose the point I am trying to make is that there is an opportunity to capture the market for the entire building process rather than just the front end. If you were to sell an app on oculus go then you would find reverse sales of enscape happening where the site foreman demands the VR model from the architect (or it become a contracted supply requirement like a set of plans) so the architect then has to purchase enscape to output the model.
If you are concerned that archicads BIMx has this covered then don't be. They talk it up, but its rubbish in VR & I don't see them making it any better anytime soon. Its like trying to move an elephant with them!
