Construction professionals can visualize designs and collaborate in real-time by overlaying large BIM and CAD files onto jobsites using AR.

Bring the power of BIM onto the jobsite

Miscommunication causes more meetings, change orders, and rework. VisualLive’s augmented reality (AR) software allows real-time 3D visualization, collaboration, and field-to-office communication across all stages of construction, such as design review, QA/QC, facility management, and more.

Optimize your models, maintain critical data

In a few simple clicks, you can bring your large BIM models to HoloLens and mobile devices within minutes. VisualLive’s cloud-based software quickly converts your files – keeping all geometries, textures, and materials, and critical information you need in the field.

Key benefits

Import from any BIM software

VisualLive has plug-ins for Autodesk Revit and Navisworks, and the web uploader interface supports 70+ 3D file formats. You can push large BIM/CAD model files to mobile, tablet, or HoloLens headsets in one click.

Improved QA/QC and installation verification

1:1 scale hologram projections enable quick field inspections, so users can see and fully experience the BIM model to quickly identify discrepancies between the design and installed conditions.

One-click issue capture and reporting

Take a picture of BIM model interaction with existing infrastructure, mark up photos, and upload to a shared project management folder.

Status tracking made simple

Easily track projects by clicking and changing the installation progress status, generate Excel spreadsheet reports, and import statuses to Navisworks with color codes.

Stream BIM onsite to remote workers

Create leaner workgroups and eliminate onsite meetings. Virtual design and construction (VDC) managers, project managers, designers, and first-line workers can communicate in real-time and work with full-scale models.

More alignment options for better AR

VisualLive has multiple alignment options available for any site or setup, including the AI-based Anchor Lock. Place QR codes in your construction site to quickly and efficiently adjust the model placement.

“It’s a tool on a utility belt that we can use to really emphasize our VDC workflows. The models that the VDC manager creates in the office are collaborated on with the subcontractors, so design teams are now expanded into the field.”

“We brought out this technology to show the stakeholders that what they wanted to do wasn’t going to work in the space that was half-constructed. It was great to have the stakeholders that invested in the technology say ‘whoa, why didn’t we know about this?’”

Frequently asked questions

How do I purchase a VisualLive license?

Contact us to speak with one of our sales representatives.

What devices can I use with VisualLive?

Mobile devices (iOS and Android tablets and phones with ARkit are AR compatible), as well as the HoloLens 1 and 2.

What is the difference between the HoloLens devices and the mobile devices when it comes to AR?

Mobile devices work best as a visualization tool for walkthroughs, presentations, or QA. HoloLens devices work best as a tool to get all of your jobs done efficiently, by superimposing BIM data onto your real-world view.

Do I have to have the HoloLens 2 to benefit from a free trial?

No. However, you will need a device capable of running AR software on a tablet, phone, or HoloLens 1.

I just downloaded my free trial. What’s next?
