AR and VR can help to visualise, train and collaborate cheaper and more effectively than traditional methods in most sectors. The construction sector is yet another sector that will see big changes with the use of AR and VR technology. The biggest challenge that the construction industry is facing is visualizing and experiencing a construction project before it’s built. Any design changes that happen when construction begins can be costly and time consuming for construction and architectural companies.
VR and AR are already starting to have an impact in many design workflows, we talked in a previous blog about the use of VR and AR in product design here, today we’ll go more in depth in this area and other design use cases, discussing the advantages, and how you can get started using some of these tools on devices you may already have. Product Design Similarly to how 3D printing has transformed the manufacturing industry, VR and AR will rapidly improve and speed up the prototyping phase of product design when integrated into the workflow.
