Ever wonder what it would be like to be able to step into your design projects? What it would feel like to hold your creation in your hands – with just the push of a button? With inStudio VR you now have the power to not just visualize, but to truly experience your ideas. No need to 3D print or build expensive prototypes – inStudio VR can put you there in seconds.
inStudio VR works directly with industry standard 3D apps, including Strata Design 3D CX. With the new VR17 Release upgrade to Design 3D it’s as easy as pushing a button to publish your design to inStudio VR.
3rd party 3D design apps are also supported using the industry standard Collada file format. Just export your design and drop it into the inStudio VR import folder and the file will automatically load on startup.
As part of this release, inStudio VR includes the Retail Store Module. The Retail Store Module offers an authentic retail store setting with stocked shelves. Interact with the environment by walking into the store, placing your models on shelves, duplicating your designs and using physics to push and pull products into place. This module is built to help you see how design variants will look next to other products on shelves for a full contextual experience. Most importantly, you can share this experience with clients, investors, and other key decision makers.
Using HDRI based lightdomes, captured from real-world settings, you can quickly switch between daytime, indoor, outdoor and other lighting conditions. Turn physics on and off to get the maximum control over the world. Use the remote control UI or directly manipulate objects. And do all of this within one of 12 pre-made environments to get just the perfect setting to explore and present your ideas.
You can even share your VR experiences with friends, clients, colleagues and key decision makers. Both inStudio VR and Design 3D CX allow you to render out stereoscopic 360° VR images for use in viewers like Google Cardboard, Daydream and Gear VR. Though not fully interactive like a live inStudio VR session, these renders place the viewer as if standing within your project, allowing them to experience your designs using a standard smartphone.
inStudio VR will be available as an SE entry level version, free of charge for a limited time. We’ll be adding features, supporting more hardware configurations (HTC Vive is supported initially) and bringing more value to inStudio VR in the coming months – increasing the value of the app as a primary part of your design toolset.
As an early adopter you have the opportunity to experience the future of design today with inStudio VR – and to be ready for the upcoming features that will make this an even more valuable part of your workflow.
