    Hey Community at Large…

    So here is REALIS3D – a product designed for architects, engineers, designers and people involved in the construction industry. This is the sneak peek and information regarding this technology is not available anywhere else.

    We really want to hear your feedback and as soon as its ready, you will be able to download the ALPHA version from the www.realis3d.com website.

    REALIS3D is different, it imports any fbx or obj file at runtime. This is a product and once purchased by a user, does not require us to be involved and does not require them to have any development experience. It will work on windows or mac and will publish executable, web player, flash and a native R3D file that can be opened by other REALIS3D users.


    IMPORTING FBXs outside of Unity




    The system will work with revit, 3ds max, archi-cad, sketchup and Bentley… Anything that can export an fbx.

    Also, and we feel this is really important, it can separate meshes so an object that has 3 materials assigned in revit will be the same in REALSI3D – this is as far as we know unique outside of Autodesk Showcase.​






    It’s a design and presentation tool first. The moment a model is imported, you can walk, fly or orbit around it. From there you can make videos, take pictures, change the scene, put in points of interest and configure the environment.

    Designing is easy, as you can see below…



    So, what is it, how does it work and why is it clever?? We see lots of services for the AEC industry and having spoken to lots or architects, it's not going to work for them - it has to be a product. This is because, when changes are made in their CAD or BIM projects, this has to be manually re-done. The advantage here, thanks to the fbx importer is that every time a change is made, you can open REALIS3D and load the updated model. In fact, it will save all your changes (lights, textures and scene info) and just update the CAD or BIM changes.


    We are a small business with big ambitions and this is important to us, so please let us know your feedback good or bad, we will listen.

    ALPHA version will soon be available on our website. www.realis3d.com.


    Thanks for looking!

    Hi there. Are there any plans to release the Fbx importer? I think it could easily be $200 on the asset store.

    This thread looks like SPAM i love to be proven wrong and in no way can i endorse this competitors solution or what it represents.

    Its not a tool for US Unity Game developers moreover not a discussion of Game Development or a product developed from Unity. and Not a Tutorial in using product tool in learning.

    This is not spam... is a great example of a non-game application made with unity3D

    Hey everyone, thanks for all the feedback...

    runner, definitely not spamming - we are trying to get feedback from the unity community and particularly AEC developers because at present there is a huge gap in the market that unity alone can not fill and REALSI3D is built from the ground up, entirely in unity....

    Then please accept my apologies, Sorry.
    Never the less i'am very impressed with the awesomeness of REALIS3D Turnkey Visualization/ Presentation Tool. And most likely envy not having the prowess to pull off even a tenth what you guys did.

    Thanks :)

    Interesting stuff. I note that the alpha is actually available on your website now, but you have to sign up and the page that has the download button isn't immediately obvious (look under community when signed in).

    It ran a bit too sluggish on my laptop which kinda spoilt the experience so I'm going to try it on a more powerful desktop.

    Pain in the ass is always the same: mesh optimization, that is reeeeeeeally time consuming for architectural visualization

    Hey everyone, thanks for the comments - just to answer some questions...

    Yes the FBX importer will be available at some point, we will keep you posted.

    Lumion is a great tech but we are trying to do something a little bit different and focused 100% on archviz.

    Thanks for the website feedback,we have updated the site so its on all pages and you no longer have to sign up!

    Laptops and REALIS3D are not great friends at the moment... we are working really hard on that!!

    Mesh optimization... where to start!?!! So, our aim is to have this running on the workstations that can make the CAD output with publishing tools that will run on lower spec machines. So for this reason, there is no need to optimize the mesh. REALIS3D is being designed as a product and bypass the need for technicians to spend ages optimizing as if they have the power to run the 3D file, they have the power to run REALSI3D.

    New links for the alpha are on the website...

    Thanks everyone!

    Very cool!
    Buying an apartment soon and i wish that company had this kind of tool because there is a lot of customizations we can do with the interior, like cabinet doors, sinks, handles, refrigerators, ceramic tiles and so on. Would be so cool to be able to "walk" around while trying out all different kinds of combinations : )

    Thanks again for the positive feedback - talking about apartments, we are working with people who make new builds. We are really interested in how we can convert already built buildings into 3D that works in Unity.

    Things like kinect may work or laser scanning but not as well as CAD.
