Bjerking initially reviewed several providers of XR but chose to move forward with
As Bjerking is continually working with 3D Point Cloud scanning (LIDAR Technology), the ease of use and import of Point Cloud files made Dimension10 a suitable provider for future 3D workflow.
“When we perform installations in housings, we hope it will be more effective to start with a
point-cloud scan that can be brought to D10 for quick review and design planning, without
the need to spend a lot of time optimizing the file for VR”
says Gustav Berglund, team leader
digital information management at Bjerking.
Bjerking has several fields of expertise, delivering services and consultation in outdoor projects such as bridge construction, landscape architecture, water and sewage, just to mention a few, making VR an interesting and beneficial tool for internal workflow, as well as bridging the communication gap between client and consultant, or between collaboration partners in projects.
What really caught Bjerking’s attention toward Dimension10 was the ease of use, being able to import point cloud scans directly into Dimension10 without the need to adjust the models any further before making them VR-ready.
Another great feature from Bjerking’s point-of-view was the life-like avatars that can be found in Dimension10. Having the avatars following even your smallest changes in posture, apart from static avatars, makes the meetings and interactions more true-to-life, an important part of humans' basic need, having the Virtual meetings fit the reality, resulting in more comfort and improved visualization.
Dimension10 is apart from many other contributors in the XR segment, a stand-alone application that also includes several integrations and support for different File formats (.FBX, .IFC, .OBJ, .Step) which was also a good reason for Bjerking to move forward with Dimension10.
