HoloLens Superimposition App Dev

HoloLens Superimposition App Dev

This initial research aims to identify the workflow from design studies to a superimposed representation of it over existing conditions using the Microsoft HoloLens headset. Being able to directly visualize proposed changes to an existing site or construction work-in-progress can assist in coordinating and confirming design parameters are being developed in line with present conditions. The goal is to continue refining the visualization and to enhance the user interactivity of live modifications in the environment, such as opportunities to change materials, move objects, and document changes.

Gravity Sketch uses the HTC Vive to create an environment for modeling geometry in virtual reality, which can then be integrated with Rhino for further editing and transformation.  At first, this reminded me of Google’s Tilt Brush, but the opportunity to edit and integrate with Rhino caught my attention.   I’ve had a chance to test out the Basic version (non commercial use, $24.99), which has quite a bit of functionality, though it would be great to have access to different export options and snapping to points, which are available in the Pro ($29.99/month) and Studio ($99.99/month) versions.  Overall, I

It’s a single component that inputs a brep or mesh and outputs a weblink after double-clicking the Speckle Uploader component. The following is one of my preliminary tests that shows the use of Speckle as a simple way of showcasing a Rhino WIP model in an online viewer: Link http://speckle.xyz/view/41-afhqZz I haven’t tried Speckle Streams yet, but found this interesting video of it being used to work collaboratively in Rhino & GH: Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKd0t1SehFc
