VR4CAD is entry-level VR software designed to make it quick and easy for CAD engineers and designers to view, investigate and annotate their CAD models using PC-based HMDs or 3D screens.

VR4CAD is a low-cost VR viewer based upon the industry-leading Visionary Render software from Virtalis. VR4CAD directly reads the 3D CAD file to quickly import and build a VR scene for viewing in low-cost PC-based HMDs such as the Oculus Rift™ or HTC Vive™ or on a zSpace™ or other 3D screen.

Unlike games engines that require considerable know-how to make a VR experience, VR4CAD adopts a plug-and-play approach, instantly recognising which VR viewing device you have installed and presenting you with a start window that directly reads the 3D CAD file.

Like its high-end sibling, Visionary Render, VR4CAD speedily transforms CAD models into full 3D VR ready to go. Users can save viewpoints, annotations and snapshots, and VR4CAD boasts ambient occlusion and shadowing.
