Imagine that you are in the market for a new equipment, but instead of looking into catalogues or websites, you want to see how it fits in your workplace. Layering virtual objects and other digital mediums into our daily lives can sound like something out of a Science Fiction movie. But with smartphones and other devices becoming a huge part of our daily lives, Augmented Reality (AR) has already changed our daily lives, and our businesses.

Many businesses have been using virtual reality to improve their processes for years. As a matter of fact, the use of VR in businesses has been accelerated since the covid-19 pandemic, as VR enables to improve business meetings from afar while still having an incredible feeling of reality. More and more sectors accelerating digital transformation are taking advantage of VR for business in order to conceive products with way less errors and collaborate more efficiently with 3D data.

When talking about the digital transformation of the construction industry, 2 technologies come to mind and are being used by professionals of the AEC sector (Architects, Engineers, Construction): Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Virtual reality (VR). As they offer the chance to experience the project while still in the design phase, BIM and VR have proven to be an efficient investment. They've already been making a fundamental change in the way the construction industry plans, designs, develops and manages a construction project. Also, they enable all the people collaborating around a project to have the same level of information, while making the process more reliable, productive and cost-effective.

Generally produced by laser scanning (LiDAR) or photogrammetry, a point cloud is a set of points in space,. Depending on their density, these points help you visualize the external surfaces of objects or environments, as they enable to have a 3D reaslistic representation of an existing environment.. Therefore, they are often used in the construction industry, along with BIM models.
But such sets of data can do a lot more for your industry: 3D scanning technology enables you to capture a digital copy of an object, when creating a CAD model from scratch can be long, costly and complex. Let’s see why point clouds in virtual reality can be a great asset for your industry and how to use it efficiently.
