The story

Chile-based Sentio VR is taking advantage of the new Oculus App Lab to distribute a Quest 2-ready version of its design review and presentation solution.

Aimed at architecture, engineering and construction professionals, Sentio VR’s solution enables them to easily integrate virtual reality into their design review and client presentations workflows for SketchUp and Revit BIM (building information modeling) models, and additional 3D content.

The arrival of Quest 2, for a competitive $299, has made virtual reality more compelling for the small- and medium-sized architecture, engineering and construction firms that Sentio VR targets, particularly when they are also in need of cloud-based software for their design reviews and client presentations.

The launch of App Lab, a distinct distribution channel on the Oculus platform for testing and rolling out new third-party apps, makes it even easier for Sentio VR’s target customers to access its solution and virtual reality as an immersive technology.

Sentio VR co-founder and chief executive officer Chaitanya Ravi sees this as a huge enabler for virtual reality adoption in architecture, engineering and construction: “With a high-quality standalone VR headset like Quest 2 at an affordable price point, easy-to-use software that integrates with design workflows, the barrier to entry to engage clients early and avoid communication errors in the design process using VR for SMBs has been reduced drastically.”

The developer’s new Oculus Quest app gives access to a cloud-based solution that features plugins for SketchUp and Revit.

It’s also at its best when accessed remotely, with up to five users able to join using a simple six-digit code and password via the Oculus Quest app.

One user, Ken Mahood, principal architect at JH Architects, is quoted by Sentio VR as saying: “Sentio VR is a transformative software product that not only blows the minds of our clients when we show them their project but also surprises us as the designers.”

“The Revit add-in interface is extremely easy to use and the price reasonable. I highly recommend this product to any architect.”
