5:40 From BIM to Real-time Visualizations or VR: A Practical Guide
John Young, Technology Team Manager | AES Engineering

John will take a practical approach to taking BIM to real-time visualizations or VR using a gaming engine. He will look at 3DS max, FBX pipeline and Unreal Engine.

6:15 Revolutionizing early-stage building design and creation with collaborative MR/VR
Amber Choo, Product Owner | Schema

Amber will present an introduction and live demo of Schema, a new mixed reality and virtual reality software for the earliest stages of architectural design. Schema enables architects to quickly draw, mass and visualize building designs in 1:1 scale using the HTC Vive or Oculus + Touch. Designers can invite clients or coworkers into the design and walk through the building with them, or edit the design together in real time. Schema also allows designers to draw in mixed reality using the Hololens or Meta headsets, enabling collaborative viewing and editing of holographic designs.

7:00 Open Discussion
Open session where attendees are encouraged to stay and discuss technical issues and best practices when implementing BIM in an informal setting.
