Croc: A VR system for the sphere of design

Developers: Croc
Date of the premiere of the system: 2017

In April, 2017 it became known that the Croc provided the universal system of virtual reality for construction companies, the project organizations and also design offices of industrial enterprises. The hardware-software solution is focused on business needs for detailed visualization of engineering data and creation of virtual prototypes of industrial products and construction objects.

Using a VR system specialists of project teams will be able to simplify approval of engineering designs thanks to the maximum visualization of the virtual model. Implementation of a professional system of virtual reality at the enterprises will allow to accelerate project development, to lower production costs of classical models and to reduce time of adoption of design solutions. The VR solution of CROC is compatible to a cloud that allows to store heavy design data in the protected storage and to release local computing resources under more priority tasks.

The system of virtual reality is connected to instruments of automated design (CAD). Thanks to it each engineer and the designer can make changes to the engineering design "on the fly" and at once to see them in a virtual prototype. It is possible to load data into a VR system from all popular design tools – Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, Siemens, PTC – without additional optimization.

Builders and designers of buildings will be able to reveal collisions in an interactive mode, to take measurements, to visualize fragments of constructions, combining in the virtual model an original informatin from a different CAD. Along with it there is a possibility of operational work with versions of the project in process of making changes.

Among relevant advantages there are solutions of CROC – ensuring connectivity and effective work with digital models at all stages of lifecycle of an object, including design, reconstruction, repair and service of the existing constructions and the equipment thanks to integration with the BIM-components and PLM technologies.

The evident format of results of modeling will help investors and project orderers to examine comprehensively designed object, to visit the building site, without leaving office. Also due to WOW effect the professional system of visualization will make the presentations of future developments at industry shows more spectacular.

The powerful computer system, the system of tracking and projection equipment are a part of the hardware-software solution of CROC the special software for conversion engineering dismissed and a format of the virtual model and also. The newest interpolation screens of the Russian production provide the high-quality image as close as possible to reality. Use of a compact VR system does not require special skills of work with technologies of virtual reality.

"A universal system will be useful in work of the enterprises where the high level of technical visualization is necessary. We see how interest of the construction and project organizations in solutions for evident acquaintance with engineering data grows" — Leus Alexander, the director of the Center of virtual reality of CROC company says. — Today not only engineers and designers, but also professionals of adjacent areas – lawyers, financial managers, auditors are involved in process of collective work on projects – it is also important to them to estimate the project from positions of the examination. Using our VR system customers and investors will be able to obtain comprehensive information on a designed project in an available form and a uniform format".

Some of the first the VR solution of CROC was tested in the Ministry of Transport and Road Facilities of the Republic of Tatarstan in the pilot project on visualization of a road outcome.
