Do you know the meaning of Mixed Reality? A few years ago, nobody knew about BIM. Nowadays BIM solutions rule the world of design. Mixed Reality for structural engineering and design is a brand new idea where the user can take advantage of the virtual and real environment. The design is compared with the reality, and the construction teams can transform digital content into real models. The new technology has been introduced in structural design with holographic glasses and 3D printers.
Our reseller for Scandinavia, EDR Medeso, together with The Norwegian Steel Association conducted a workshop combining IDEA Statica simulations with visualization using 3D printing and Mixed Reality. They demonstrated how this technology can increase the performance and efficiency in the design and verification of offshore steel structures.
