We thought we would catch up with The Wild, a new innovative AR/VR software platform first unveiled at Autodesk University 2018, late last year. We first wrote about the Portland-based company during our AU 2018 coverage here.
The Wild—Catching Up with Latest Features
We noted during our AU coverage that The Wild had an engaging software environment for working in VR and enabled direct 3D modeling with basic shapes by using your hands with the VR headgear controllers. But that is hardly the super neat features in The Wild. We noted that The Wild has great multi-party collaboration tools and a unique industry feature that enables the user to create what I would call a computer screen or window literally inside the virtual environment itself. You are uniquely able to zoom into that virtual window and teleport youself into another level of virtual reality. These are just some of the cool features.
Back in May of this year, The Wild introduced two new features for their cloud-based immersive collaboration platform. The first was the Sketch Annotation tool which lets single and multiple users collaborate and annotate models together. You draw in 3D.
The second feature is the support of video content, enabling designers to create more dynamic spaces and to evaluate their work more contextually. These tools added to other new tools this year, including their Comment tool for feedback and annotation.
In June The Wild released their Revit add-in tool. The new feature adds a persistent connection between a Revit project and The Wild, so 3D views can be converted to spaces and updated as the project evolves in Revit.
“Tight integration with Revit is the number one thing our customers want,” said The Wild’s founder and CEO Gabe Paez. “Our Revit add-in is streamlining the workflow for teams working in architecture, engineering, and construction. Architects and designers can seamlessly experience their Revit content in one easy click.”
