Although virtual reality has been around for some time, what's changed for AEC professionals is the availability and refinement of the technology. For example, headset makers like Oculus and HTC have developed consumer-friendly apparatuses that have opened up a new world of VR capabilities. Other key developments for AEC include employing headsets to immerse stakeholders in a presentation, or to help them gain a further appreciation for the details and specifics of a 3D model. With continued room for growth in VR's usability and versatility, get ahead of the curve with a BOXX APEXX VR ready workstation that can harness the raw power of the technology.
The potential of using VR and CAD applications like Revit or 3ds Max is an enticing one for AEC professionals. With intricate modeling functions and richly textured visuals, the outcomes could be astounding. However, before diving into VR and CAD, you have to understand the optimal workstation configurations needed to support those workflows. CAD software is predominantly single-threaded, meaning core frequency is the primary performance driver. VR, on the other hand, relies on game engine technology that requires high-end graphics capabilities for a seamless experience.
Get the best of both worlds with a BOXX VR ready workstation like the APEXX S3. Featuring an Intel® Core™ i7 or i9 CPU performance tuned to 5.2GHz, APEXX S3 can also support up to two NVIDIA RTX™ GPUs and 128GB of memory. Also recommended is the 4.9GHz AMD Ryzen™ 5000-based APEXX A3 with up to 16 CPU cores, two professional graphics cards, and 128GB of RAM.

One obvious use of VR in architecture, engineering, and construction is the process of stakeholder collaboration. When everyone has the same experience using VR, professionals can more easily communicate designs and coordinate their analysis. This also requires you to be on-the-go and in need of a virtual reality laptop capable of handling the demands of VR. GoBOXX MXL, equipped with NVIDIA GeForce graphics, is an ideal solution for this task, while the ultra-light GoBOXX SLM VR couples computing power with an NVIDIA RTX™ GPU.
