One update software providers increasingly carry out with their software is the creation of interaction with 3D CAD Models in AR/VR environments. Tech Soft 3D, a provider of software development tools and 3D PDF solutions updated its software and created AR/VR support for HOOPS Visualize.

HOOPS Visualize now enables rapid development and deployment of 3D engineering applications on the HTC Vive, Microsoft HoloLens, Oculus Rift and Meta 2. When coupled with the rich access to 3D CAD data through HOOPS Exchange, software companies have a powerful set of tools to bring their next generation of engineering software to market.

eDrawings for mobile

SOLIDWORKS for instance, a partner of Tech Soft 3D takes advantage of HOOPS Visualize within eDrawings for mobile. According to the company, design teams can see products at full scale so their true size is obvious. Thanks to AR functionality, users can easily place products on the table in front of customers for efficient collaboration and decision making.

Being able to add augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) like the Google Cardboard to eDrawings mobile with a single click helps our customers create compelling presentations and 3D interactions. It easily communicates design intent, constraints and overall improves the collaboration process,” said Arnav Mukherjee, Development Director, Viewer & Experimental Technology at SOLIDWORKS. “Because we were already using HOOPS Visualize as the graphics engine on iOS and Android, adding these capabilities on these multiple platforms was straightforward and a powerful addition to eDrawings.”
