Virtual Reality (VR) technology is becoming an essential part of the project and the design process in the AEC industry. VR enables all audiences to perceive spaces in the easiest way. It is a good tool for communicating the design to clients and also a way to collaborate with other stakeholders during the design process. VR can offer a solution to everyone to discuss design decisions online in a time saving, efficient way.

To save time in choosing a VR solution, we created the chart below. It presents an overview of software solutions that connect ARCHICAD with VR in a straightforward way.

Is it still possible to access BIM Object Data in Twinmotion? Would really appreciate any help. 




Currently we use MacBook Pro in the office. I have been doing some reading on VR and its compatibility with Apple and currently the HTC Vive is the only Mac compatible VR headset. Is this a plug and play compatibility or do we still need to install Windows? Anyone had experiences with this?
