Hi, I'd love for clients to walk through a model using some sort of 'affordable' VR headset - think along the lines of google cardboard etc. I've googled a little but can't see any solutions out there and google cardboard itself is discontinued. 

 

 

What is the solution that everyone uses?

The Bimx app has cardboard vr still, I use that with a merge 360 headset I found on Amazon.

 

I have some clients that I send twinmotion files to

 

Ok got it.... I tried the cardboard app. How do you control movement when in cardboard? From what I see you just get a static viewpoint. 

 

Sorry if these are basic newbie questions. I couldn't find the documentation out there.  🙂

Normally the movement is controlled by the tilt and motion sensors of the smartphone

Isn't there a touch sensitive button on the cardboard goggles that links to the joystick control button on the BIMx screen on the phone?

So it is as if you are steering with the joystick on the screen.

The button controls the stop and go, and head tracking controls direction

For affordable VR walkthroughs, consider alternatives like the Oculus Go or Oculus Quest 2. They provide higher quality than Google Cardboard and are still reasonably priced. You can create VR experiences using platforms like Unity or Unreal Engine, then export them for use on these headsets.
