Interactive 3D VR Simulation & Modeling Software

FORUM8’s interactive VR-Design Studio* software is deployed by hundreds of research organisations, urban planners, transportation authorities and vehicle manufacturers across all four continents to create fully immersive, realistic models of the built environment.

NEW! 4D VR Design Studio (V14.2) Available Now

VR Design Studio ( aka UC-win/Road ) Ver.14.12 now includes a range of new features including:
Linear Calculations and Spreadsheet Enhancements

Improvements to linear data accessibility, particularly for railway calculations, that can be exported easily to excel

Data calculation accuracy has been improved down to less than millimetre units

The levels of feedback when a vehicle collides with a curb can now be further adjusted. Especially useful for motion platforms when the feedback force of a curb collision could be too strong

Deletion of a vehicle that  exits the set limits of the round  is now an option

Improvements to Log Outputs

Users can now specify the name of the output log file when saving

Traffic Signal information log output is now possible

Message output from scenarios can now be output in the log file to better understand where in the scenario events are occurring

Floating point numbers: The number of decimal points, in regards to when a real number is output, can now be set. It is now easier to output in the desired format

New support for FBX file output

3D spatial data can now be output in the FBX file format. This enables the 3D data to be efficiently handled with game engines and 3D modeling tools.

Supports 3D shapes, transparent colors, semi-transparent polygon data, and compatibility improvements

Interactive 3D VR simulation and modeling software VR-Design Studio enables users to dynamically manipulate 3D space, run unlimited drive simulation scenarios, import and edit CAD data, build and texture models, and automatically add roads, tunnels and bridges to create multiple design alternatives in real time, both off and online.  The completed models provide users with the ability to visualize and intelligently interact with the virtual world they have created, enabling analysis of the potential environmental impact of the proposed development, including on pedestrian and vehicular traffic flows, to facilitate the widest possible stakeholder collaboration during the planning process.

With an extensive range of industry standard 3rd party plugins available, together with access to external data sources including laser-scanning, Lidar and photo-logs, users can quickly create 3D VR environments and run unlimited scenarios and simulations. Within these environments reproducing all types of environmental effects including weather, light, topology and road-surface conditions to create a highly realistic platform for advanced driver and emergency incident response training.

*(VR Design Studio is also known as UC /Win Road in other regions of the world)
