Edificius and VRiBIM technology
The start of a new era with dynamic integration between architectural BIM design and immersive virtual reality

Revolutionize traditional workflows | Edificius+VRiBIM | ACCA software

Revolutionize traditional workflows
Explore and modify your project live and in real time with a realistic perception of spaces, lights, materials.

Revolutionize the way you communicate | Edificius+VRiBIM | ACCA software

Revolutionize the way you communicate
Present your projects using high-quality visual output and engage better offering customers and clients extraordinary immersive experiences.

Take a virtual tour of your BIM models using immersive virtual reality directly from Edificius

VRiBIM changes your way of designing. It radically transforms your relationship with the stakeholders involved in the project and greatly improves communication with customers

With VRiBIM you can explore your project live. See it in all its details as if it were already built and get an even more realistic perception of spaces, environments, colors, lights and materials.

Even the presentation of the project becomes a dynamic and interactive experience; you will be able to communicate your ideas in an even clearer, more understandable and engaging way and test changes in real time as they are requested by the client (from simple choices such as furniture or surface finishes, to more demanding functional-architectural choices).

Modify the BIM model in real time from the immersive virtual reality environment

VRiBIM is the first technology for Immersive Virtual Reality integrated and dynamically connected to BIM software solutions for architecture and design.

With VRiBIM you can modify the BIM model - from the immersive virtual reality environment or through the dynamically connected BIM authoring software - while you navigate in the virtual environment you get a direct visual feedback to reach the most appropriate design choices rapidly.

Each BIM model becomes an interactive environment that responds to inputs and offers immediate insights to improve the project. Thanks to VRiBIM, trying different solutions and evaluating their feasibility in real time changes everything.
