All of their design is carried out in 3D, with a base in 3D scans with accuracies up to 10 mm on 10 meters. Essentially, this means that our colleagues going offshore are as prepared for the job at hand. However, when wanting to explain and share the work done in 3D by our engineers with our offshore colleagues, it is in a 2D setting, or at best, on a monitor, which in itself requires that people are trained and educated to be able to read the drawings.
Along came the idea from our engineering colleague, who came suggested that we would start using the concept of Virtual Reality. By using the latest immersive technologies, we would ensure an in-depth understanding of complex environments. This was reached by combining point clouds with extensive 3D modelling in virtual reality (VR). This proved itself as a strong tool for ensuring information sharing and reaching a common understanding amongst our colleagues and clients alike.
