Collaborate in VR around a virtual prototype

Your 3D models in virtual reality

Improov can load most standard file formats (FBX, OBJ, 3DS, STL, VRML, IGES, STEP) as well as CAD and BIM data (CATPart, CATProduct, CGR, SolidWorks, JT, 3DXML, IFC)

Communicate more naturally

Virtual reality is a much more natural communication tool than a regular plan or regular 3D software. Engage more with your non-technical teams and clients

Validate your designs faster

Improov is packed with great reviewing tools such as cutting planes, measurement tools, annotations, screenshots and much more

Collaborate online

Connect with your colleagues, contractors or clients all around the world and work with them as if they were in the same room. Less travels is also good for the environment

Ergonomic assessment

Easily check if your work environment is safe and ergonomic. Animate your virtual manikin via motion capture trackers (A.R.T., Vicon, XSens, …) or like a puppet with your HTC Vive or Oculus controllers

Collision detection

Based on a fast and precise industrial physics engine, easily detect collisions between the virtual manikin and the environment, or between 3D objects
