Case Studies

Project Type:
Skender is drawing up plans to manufacture and build the modular units for a 10-story, 144-unit multifamily building in Uptown Chicago and a 7-story, 122-unit multifamily building in West Loop. “We know we’ll get this done 40 percent faster than anyone else and at a higher standard,” said Skender Chief Design Officer Tim Swanson. Stacy Scopano, Skenders new Chief Technology Officer – “I haven’t seen a lot of virtual reality experiences that didn’t include some awkward disconnect between “presenter” and “audience.” The Magic Leap device eliminates isolating a team member’s in their own virtual environments and allows for a much more natural augmented collaboration, which is the original intent of mixing realities in Real Estate & AEC.” VIM will be collaborating with Skender on real-time augmented experiences for the modular units. VIM's Augmented Reality application powered by Magic Leap will augment the physical space to help people experience what the finished product will represent when completed.

Key Facts

What is VIM
From Revit to real-time in no time Creating a VIM file is a breeze with our Revit plugin. From dry technical BIM to a lightweight and complete encapsulation, users can export a VIM file from Revit, then open it in various apps and editors such as 3DS Max. You won't have to wait long, with our best in class export performance from Revit to VIM, you'll be pleased to see small projects export instantly, and amazed that large complex BIM, like a 2.2GB Project with 16 links will only take 25 minutes to turn into a VIM from a mid-tier laptop. That same VIM loads into the VIM Desktop App in mere seconds, by the way! Key Features: - Local or Cloud, your choice - Small file size - All links in one file - Maintains data for phases, work sets, design options, sub-categories, etc - All BIM data
