Design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. has released an integrated Omniverse Connector, providing Windows users a direct connection to the NVIDIA Omniverse platform for building and operating metaverse applications.
The new plug-in connects Vectorworks 3D models straight to Omniverse via the Universal Scene Description (USD) framework, eliminating steps for the import/export process, saving designers valuable time, and streamlining collaborative processes. Designers can now freely and infinitely iterate on design concepts in real time using high-fidelity models that can be instantly shared with one click.
Visual collaboration in the metaverse
“The Omniverse Connector opens the door to a new realm of possibilities for our users,” said Vectorworks Chief Executive Officer Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “Designers can access the metaverse to work with colleagues, consultants and clients in new and exciting ways, fostering the potential for groundbreaking, limitless designs. We’re excited to see the bright future this new feature sparks for designers and our software.”
“The industrial metaverse delivers immense opportunities for everyone, including the many design professionals using Vectorworks,” said Richard Kerris, vice president of the Omniverse development ecosystem at NVIDIA. “The Vectorworks Omniverse Connector presents vast possibilities for these creatives, enabling cutting-edge ways to visualize, simulate and share projects while accelerating 3D workflows and empowering collaboration.”
The release of the Vectorworks Omniverse Connector coincides with NVIDIA GTC, the top developer conference for the era of AI and the metaverse, running online through Thursday, March 23.
