Since 2009, we have tried to make it as easy for our clients to visualise our designs for your dream home. To do this we use our 3D drawing package ARCHIcad to create highly accurate 3D models, 2D drawings along with static rendered images.
We also output our 3D model to the BIMx App, which then allows you to walk around your future home on your iPad or home computer. The integration of this to our service has been a huge success and is loved by the majority of our clients.
We still love this technology and this is our basic service, but from the beginning of April, ACA are delighted to be offering a whole new level of visualisation……yes fully immersive Virtual Reality.
Earlier this year we invested in new software (Twinmotion 2019) and hardware (Vive VR), we have set this up in our new dedicated VR suite. This will allow ACA to invite you into your home, to walk around and fully appreciate the external design and internal spaces in unbelievable clarity – you will be blown away!
The software is so advanced we can let you walk around your future home, whilst changing accurate materials, the furniture, lighting and even the weather! We see this as an amazing design tool, together we will be able to complete final tweaks, whilst you are standing in your home.
Experiencing your new home in VR with ACA, will be an add on service, available to all our clients, and we would love you to experience it. We have 1 main service which once completed can be complemented with additional visits, these are outlined below.
