Modus VR has announced a number of upgrades to its platform that deliver greater control and customization for integrators and their clients. According to Modus VR co-founder Ken Brueck, the new software improves every step of the design process, from offering new aesthetics options to an updated CAD export workflow, allowing integrators to design faster, improve the client’s virtual experience, and close more sales.
With Modus VR’s new CAD export workflow, once a room is built in virtual reality, it can be exported as a CAD document faster than ever. Using a simple UI, integrators can create as many different views of the space as they need, and even add a company logo and information to PDFs for the ultimate in professional presentation. The new support for Windows Mixed Reality headsets further enhances the sales process by eliminating the need for external sensors and making setup and breakdown of a VR experience much faster and simpler.
Integrators will appreciate the availability of new virtual objects such as two new Epson projectors, SnapAV Signature Series racks, more default sizes for 16:9 projection screens, area rugs, ceiling fans, and fiber optic ceilings. New finishes are available for floors and walls, including select wood flooring, various carpet patterns, polished concrete, and more, while seating options now include a variety of leathers and microfiber.
Some existing objects received minor upgrades, such as in-ceiling speakers with smaller bezels, recessed lighting with round and square options in four sizes, and additional pendant light styles. A new flexible couch and ottoman can be resized on three axes for complete control, with a realistic, reactive appearance that adds cushions as length is increased.
Modus VR’s object library, where 3D models of all the furniture, appliances and decorations are stored, is now organized into categories, providing much faster object selection and enabling larger libraries that are easier to navigate. Aesthetics options also received upgrades, with the added ability to select wood flooring, various carpet patterns, polished concrete, and more. Seating options now include a variety of leathers and microfiber.
The new process for creating color palettes is easier than ever, too. Designers can set up their own library of color swatches, assign them to multiple objects, and then make sweeping changes in seconds. The software update also includes several bug fixes. As always, these updates are immediately available to all existing customers at no additional charge.
Modus VR will be demonstrating the latest version of its award-winning design software at CEDIA 2019 at Booth #4343 in the Colorado Convention Center.
