BridgingReality BIM with Tekle Holographics
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an indispensable tool for the construction and installation industry. Our BridgingReality application takes information from BIM systems and displays it in an immersive 3D hologram. The key to this is the way we are able to process data in real-time.
BIM models require an enormous amount of data. Co-ordinates for 3D, data for different layers such as electrical installations, water pipes and sanitation, building materials etc. all amount to a lot of information to process. BIM models can be directly imported in BridgingReality from applications like Autodesk BIM 360, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Navisworks, Rhino and SketchUp. The holographic image can be viewed, rotated, and scaled in real-time. Multiple users can watch the display without the need for VR glasses, which would take away the real world and the other spectators.
BridgingReality BIM gives construction companies, architects and any other party involved in the building process endless possibilities and versatility. It will minimize mistakes in the planning and modelling stage, which will save time, money and wasted materials during the actual building stage. Our solution greatly contributes to sustainability and eco-friendly designs.
Benefits for the
Scale & rotate real-time
View and manipulate the image in real-time from every angle. You can watch and discuss the project with multiple users without VR glasses.
Filter every single aspect
Set filtering criteria to view only certain parts of the building. Only the electrical installation for example. Or a single floor or wing.
Save time & money
No need for expensive mock-ups. Minimize mistakes and prevent unnecessary waste of building materials.

An introduction to Tekle Holographics
Information categories can be filtered in real-time. This makes it possible to view only certain aspects of a building, like water & sanitation or electrical installations. Or to single out one particular floor. Users can walk through buildings and look at the model from every angle and experience them before they are built.
Smart lighting options allow you to see the model with the correct sunlight for any time of the day or year. A built-in measuring tool can accurately determine the distance between two points. BIM information such as materials, weight, length, and more is available at the click of a button and realistic textures can be turned on or off upon command.
It is important to appreciate the social aspect of BridgingReality. It allows for several people to simultaneously view and use the holographic image and discuss the model. Because no VR glasses are needed, social interaction is not hampered as viewers can always see each other.
Even if the presenter is not using a holographic display, it is easy to collaborate on multiple projects at once through timestamped messages and live via microphone. Monitoring progress and staying up to date on a project has never been easier.
