Bentley Systems is now offering its innovative SYNCHRO XR app. This tool is designed for immersively visualising 4D construction digital twins with the new Microsoft HoloLens 2.
Bentley has been selected as a Microsoft mixed reality partner and says that using SYNCHRO XR for HoloLens 2, users can interact collaboratively with digital construction models. Users of the tool can utilise gestures to plan, visualise, and experience construction sequencing.
Project digital twin data is visualised with the HoloLens 2 via Bentley’s connected data environment, powered by Microsoft Azure. Construction managers, project schedulers, owner operators, and other project stakeholders can gain insights through immersive visualisation into planned work, construction progress, potential site risks, and safety requirements. Additionally, users can interact with the model together and collaboratively experience 4D objects in space and time, as opposed to traditional interaction with a 2D screen depicting 3D objects.
The Microsoft HoloLens 2 package is a self-contained holographic computer that enables hands-free, heads-up interaction with digital models.
