Integration between HoloLens holographic technology and sketchup will streamline the design, construction and operation of buildings and structures

Rajib Dey : Editor-in-chief

Trimble is making partnership with Microsoft to build up a new tool for next generation Architects by incorporating with the HoloLens holographic platform on Windows 10. This alliance will certainly progress the quality, collaboration and effectiveness in the design, construction and operation of buildings and structures.

The AEC communities can utilize the HoloLens device to augment intercommunication with 3D models outside the boundary of a 2D computer screen as well as find new methods several project stakeholders, who deal with complicated & multi-stage construction projects, to envisage, collaborate, distribute ideas and manipulate interchange.

By integrating HoloLens with sketchup, the architects can use their SketchUp models as holograms and set them in the practical field. With the connect collaboration feature of HoLoLens, the project teams get the ability to examine those models as well as several "what if" design approaches and collaborate in real world from a remote location. It also enhances the design and construction progression to a great extent.

HoloLens holographic can also be applied with Trimble Connect to facilitate the project team to successfully evaluate and collaborate from a remote location to settle constructability problems in real time.

Initially, Trimble is planning to incorporate HoloLens with the following Trimble solutions:

  • Trimble Connect - a collaborative atmosphere for design, engineering and construction projects, supported by Gehry Technologies' GTeam software procured by Trimble in 2014, Trimble Connect facilitates the project teams to obtain and manipulate project data throgh a cloud platform.
  • SketchUp - the globally recognized 3D modeling platform for several 3d modeling professionals to produce, update and exchange designs in 3D.
  • Trimble V10 Imaging Rover – It is a consolidated camera system that aptly captures 360-degree digital panoramas for improved visual documentation and measurement of the adjacent environment that can be converted into data-rich geospatial deliverables.

This newest technology is under beta development and will be available soon for commercial applications.
