Infosys developed a cloud hosted virtual reality (VR) solution for Hatch, a global leader in mining, energy and infrastructure. The company has over six decades of experience in engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) and business consulting services for mining, metallurgical, energy and infrastructure sectors. The VR solution provides teams of designers and site engineers with an immersive 3D view of designs in a 1:1 scale. It enhances collaboration across the project lifecycle, reduces cycle time, boosts productivity, and improves quality by replacing traditional engineering design review with an immersive engineering design process.
Handling varied size of data
Projects in the iModelHub varied in size, with iModels ranging from 70MB / 220K triangles to 5.8GB / 150 million triangles.
Since designers uploaded design changes to the iModelHub with every iteration, the new application had to capture changes in the backend, pull this content, and stream it to the VR application at run time.
Infosys VR solution provides design, engineering, and construction teams with an immersive 3D view of ongoing infrastructure projects.

Combines 3D models and metadata for insights into complex aspects of the project
Our immersive solution integrates data and information, including metadata, from multiple sources such as CAD drawings and 3D assets. It streams models onto VR devices in a 1:1 scale to provide designers and engineers with near-real views during design and review processes.
Our user-friendly solution allows 2D and 3D designs to be ported across VR headsets such as Microsoft HoloLens and Oculus Rift as well as personal computing devices.
Our application streams changes in design and configurations from the database and makes it available in VR for designers to view at run time. A geometry cache solution minimizes the time taken to download high-resolution images. Significantly, our VR solution reduces time required for converting an existing 3D to new VR model
