Check out our new VR Portal

A few months ago we launched the new VR page of our website. This is a new portal for clients to view and experience their projects in a way like never before.

With our virtual reality software training from 2017 + 2018 (via QLD government tech grant for small businesses) the Inaspace team have been pumping out 3d virtual models like no tomorrow. Much like the 90’s computer game the Sims, our clients are now able to walk through their project on their own computer to get an idea of what their project will look like before construction even begins.

The VR portal page now allows clients to have a password protected link to their model 24/7 and can share with any other consultants or people involved with the project.

The web standalone versions of our models can be run on any computer with a WebGL2 compatible browser (refer to our VR portal for further instructions on how to install WebGL2 – but put simply WebGL2 allows for real-time interactive 3D graphics in the web browser).

These online versions are a lower resolution which means they can be viewed quickly and easily regardless of computer specifications. Ultimately this means we can send to our clients to view and approve a design much quicker than we could before and they don’t require high end graphics cards to view it. It’s a convenient way for us to communicate with the client so they know exactly where the design is up to at any given time.

The limitations of the web standalone version means that it can’t be used with VR equipment to see it in full scale, nor does it have live updates to change out materials or furniture selections etc – though this can still be done in office and is very much encouraged to ensure the client is 100% happy with the design.

We are so stoked with how quickly our skills have grown and what we are able to offer our clients compared to 2 years ago. The investment in this technology has certainly paid off as you can’t beat being able to see a project to full scale and making material changes which is instantly reflected in the model for the client to see.

We are planning to look into the next level of VR with interactive audio and hopefully down the track the software allows for interactive animations. Looking forward to seeing what our projects look like in another 2 years but for now check out an example of walking through one of our recent projects.
