Revit Holoview – Overlay 3D Models with Buildings Using Augmented Reality

From the Revit Holoview website:

Revolutionizing architecture, construction and facility management

Revit Holoview uses Microsoft's mixed reality technology, the HoloLens, to virtualize holographic images of 3D Revit models into the physical world. Full scale holographic images accurately overlay the building structure to provide an unmatched level of real-world proportion, scale, form and perspective. Revit Holoview revolutionizes how plans are visualized and communicated bringing transparency across the entire design, construction and post-construction facility management phases.

Visualize a building's design, structure, MEP services and fit-out.

  • Easy upload of Revit files to Web Service
  • Quick conversion into Hololens compatible format
  • No loss of details during conversion
  • Support for large/complex Revit models
  • Positioning and alignment options for using on-site
  • Configure viewing distances for large models without compromising performance
  • Ability to colour code building services
  • Easy and intuitive to use

Critical decisions made with confidence

Revit Holoview makes it easy for people to better understand design concepts, structure and constructability thereby avoiding costly mistakes.

Not until you immerse yourself in a true 1:1 scale of a design can you really understand the design, spatial dynamics and interaction of complex systems as they will be completed. Because Revit Holoview allows full scale BIM models to be experienced on-site during construction, plans and constructability are verified early before mistakes are made.

Construction elements and processes are better communicated between designers, managers, contractors and clients thereby improving project efficiency and avoiding costs inherent with changes, delays and rebuilds. Post-construction, Revit Holoview enables Facility Managers to 'look through walls' precisely locating hidden MEP services for maintenance and up-grades.
The look and feel of different fit-out plans can be easily viewed to optimize the use of space. By providing the truest experience of proportion and perspective. Revit Holoview allows users to make the best decisions regarding placement of equipment, furniture and fittings.

What people are saying about Revit Holoview.

"The app has been great so far. The feature to change the viewing distance to compensate for dense files is really nice."
- Scot MacIver (ClayCo Inc)

"Perfect application. Easy to use, understandable UI. "
- Dominic Norton (Messer Construction Co)

"...a great product. I am amazed how simple it works."
- Frank Wolbertus (TBI KennisLAB)

"I wouldn't consider putting a model of the size that we ran on the Revit Holoview through alternative software- as its way too big and complex."
- Ben McKay (Wiley Construction)
