WakingApp creates AR/VR add-ins, allowing CAD users easy, seamless transition from 3D models to AR/VR content in ENTiTi Creator
The leading universal AR/VR software company, WakingApp, released new, innovative add-ins that allow AUTODESK REVIT & FUSION 360 users to transform their 3D designs into augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences without AR/VR programming skills or experience. WakingApp’s Revit add-in and Fusion 360 add-in support seamless content generation, a game-changer for millions of CAD users worldwide – enabling file sharing and file fixing for their designs prior to the prototype and printing stage. With just a few mouse clicks, users can turn CAD into AR or VR, and share it with clients and colleagues instantly. These add-ins are expected to have a profound impact on AR/VR design efficiency, as well as to disrupt current business models that have long separated CAD users from AR/VR design. Content generated using the add-ins will be password-protected by default, so that only the user and authorized viewers will be able to view it. The password is initiated directly to the user Autodesk account’s registered email address within minutes after the process has begun. WakingApp staff will be on hand at the Nov14 MEETUP for Fusion 360 users and from November 15-17 in AU CONFERENCE LAS VEGAS to demonstrate the new plug-ins in person.
“The greatest challenge for the entry of AR/VR services to everyday business use is the cost of content in time and money,” said Udi Shani, CEO of WakingAPP. “With these new add-ins, WakingApp continues to break down key barriers in AR/VR content creation. We are excited to engage the entire 19 million strong CAD community and help lead them into the world of AR/VR with ease.“
“Autodesk is excited to see WakingApp delivering our customers Augmented & Virtual Reality in just one click” said Jim Quanci, Senior Director Software partner Development. “When WakingApp’s ENTiTi software is combined with Autodesk apps, millions of CAD users and their customers can experience their designs in augmented and virtual reality in near real time.”
With the ENTiTi Creator (WakingApp’s cloud-based platform), CAD users can add interactivity to their designs, such as colors, animating objects and more. This software allows CAD users to edit existing projects created by the Revit or Fusion 360 add-in. Once users save and publish content in ENTiTi, their AR/VR experience can be immediately shared and viewed by clients and colleagues. It’s easy to use and requires no prior AR or VR experience.
WakingApp, an Autodesk partner, was established in 2013 with the vision of enabling designers to create and view AR and VR experiences easily without writing a single line of code.
The ENTiTi platform is designed for non-programmers, allowing the creation of dynamic behaviors through a patent-pending technology with a smooth, easy-to-use interface. The platform is cloud-based and the content is interchangeable. Whenever content is generated or updated, it is immediately available for viewing on multiple platforms including mobile devices, GearVR, and desktop devices such as the Oculus Rift & HTC Vive.
Thanks to WakingApp’s ENTiTi platform, any business can now create virtual reality and augmented reality content in hours and immediately publish it to all major platforms so this medium will finally be able to meet the demand for content in the near future.
