3D Scanned materials

Added more than 40 3D scanned materials into the Free Library. Increase your Rendering production with these awesome materials. Other 3D scanned materials will be loaded very soon. Thanks to the real-time rendering the final result is amazing.

Windows Mixed Reality for Architecture

Windows Mixed Reality is now available for architecture exploration with all eyecad VR software. This is one of the most important news because Windows MR is a great opportunity for Architecture. No external sensors, and just two cable (Hdmi and USB) to immersive yourself into the architectural exploration.

VR Low poly Objects Library

Rendering quality improved

Rendering quality is now at high levels. Time to rendering pictures in 4K resolution is still 0,1 seconds but we have improved quality, specially for details and lighting. Now every images are taken in Ultra Quality. Keep calm and take renders at the speed of light with eyecad VR!

Terrain Editor. Create awesome architectural landscapes, easily!

The Landscape editor has been improved. It is faster now and with better realistic details. Be sure to turn on 3D grass once finished to model the 3D terrain.

TELEPORT is here!

Finally, thanks from users around the world, we have decided to add teleport system in virtual reality. Now it’s finally possible to move into your 3D projects using the new movement system. Teleport is very good to go faster and it greatly reduces the motion sickness. Now if explore by walking or by teleporting is just a choice!
