Description

Description

This roundtable will focus on different available virtual-reality (VR) hardware options, with the purpose of implementing VR into architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) workflows. We will have an in-depth discussion both about the tethered VR options like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, as well as about more-affordable mobile options like the Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard, and others. Every VR platform has strengths and weaknesses. We will discuss which VR platforms perform best paired with specific workflows for optimal end results. We will discuss everything from setting up and optimizing the VR hardware and available accessories to desktop/laptop/mobile requirements and hardware specifications needed to ensure an optimal AEC-VR experience. We will showcase different ways we use VR in the AEC industry, paired with appropriate hardware. VR can realize major savings in various VR workflows that include 360 renderings, VR walk-throughs, existing conditions exploration, virtual mockups, and many others. This session features Revit, 3ds Max, and Autodesk Stingray.

Marin Pastar

Marin Pastar graduated from Drury University in 2005 and became licensed as an architect in 2011. From the beginning of his career in 2004, Pastar has been deeply involved in 3D modeling and visualization with AutoCAD software and 3ds Max software. This evolved into a career-defining turn to Revit software and Building Information Modeling (BIM). Fascinated by BIM compared to traditional project-delivery methods, Pastar was the driving force in evolving the 11-person CAD firm into the growing, multioffice, 80-plus person, virtual design and construction (VDC) firm that Bates & Associates Architects is today. As director of innovation, Pastar is involved in all aspects of projects from design and virtual reality; to streamlining architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) workflows from planning and construction; into facility management and operation. Pastar has been a regular Autodesk University attendee and a Revit Certified Professional since 2012. He has been invited to speak about VDC at several Construction Specification Institute (CSI) and Associated General Contractors (AGC) conferences, as well as at Autodesk University 2015. Autodesk, Inc., recognized Bates as Early Technology Adopters, and produced a customer success story that you can watch at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meJ2t3BSeR4

Rich Conyers

Rich Conyers, Design Professional & Associate Architect, is a Revit Certified Professional currently pursuing licensure while co-designing and production modeling. His experience with a variety of typologies from a 108 bed lodge resort, a $160 mil. hospital expansion, a 120 bed skilled nursing facility, to Missouri’s only natural science museum has allowed Rich to experience the processes and workflows unique to many building types as well as the consistencies between them. Rich is currently a member of multiple boards and committees targeting education in the office and throughout the region: bates BIM committee, Missouri Institute of Natural Science Board, OTC’s Drafting and Design Technology Advisory Committee, OTC Steam Days, and GOCAPS (a program for exceptional students seeking careers in engineering, entrepreneurship, and medical fields). He strives to reevaluate processes of the past and mold more accurate and efficient workflows of tomorrow.

Ian McGaw

Ian McGaw has a dual degree in computer science and international business, focusing on the management and research and development of emerging technologies in the AEC/O sector. He is an executive business leader with broad domestic and international experience in identifying strategic and innovative technology solutions to complex business challenges. Ian’s interests, along with years of industry-related experience, have allowed him to understand complex technology process has become an influential factor in the way buildings are delivered all over the world. Ian has experience in full value chain of project development process, starting from early strategic planning, project planning, business IT innovation strategy and business portfolio management for long term clients all the way to project execution on healthcare, mega-sized mixed use development, aviation, hospitality, simulation training, and complex industrial projects.
