Visit the Venice Biennale with iVisit 3D!

Villa Arpel & the French Pavillion at the 14th Venice Biennale | A Virtual Tour by iVisit 3D

After creating a virtual tour of the French Pavillion at the 14th international architecture exhibit in Venice, Abvent continues to promote French architectural culture and confirms its support for the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, the French Institute, and the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine, offering a tour inside the tour!

Thanks to Abvent's iVisit 3D technology, visitors can explore the Villa Arpel's model in every detail.

Technology: iVisit 3D by Abvent

This model is presented in Venice in the first room of the French Pavillion called "Jacques Tati and the Arpel Villa -- object of desire or a ridiculous machine?"

The main character of Tati’s film, Mon Oncle, a huge success on screens in 1958, is less Monsieur Hulot, whose lanky figure appeared in theaters five years earlier, than the Arpel Villa, in which the main part of the plot takes place. The Arpel Villa continues, more than 50 years later, to symbolize the dream of a life made better by machines, sometimes turned into a farce.

Convert and transfer an iVisit 3D Panorama, VR Object to a mobile device

Developed especially for architects and designers by Abvent R&D, iVisit 3D is an innovative technology dedicated to 3D presentations and virtual visits. Whether used to visualize 3D panoramas on mobile devices or on the Internet, iVisit 3D is a simple, fun, and effective communication tool!

Created in 2011 and available with Artlantis Studio 4 or higher, the success of iVisit 3D gave rise to new opportunities for ArchiCAD and Autodesk 360 Rendering users by allowing them to create interactive panoramas quickly and easily.

Free players are currently available on Google Play and the App Store to allow users to view these interactive panoramas.

In addition to panoramas, Artlantis 5 and iVisit 3D allow you to create VR Objects! The iVisit 3D Player has been upgraded to open up new horizons in creativity. The display quality of iVisit 3D panoramas and VR Objects is better than ever -- whether you’re viewing on a website or on a mobile device. For unlimited sharing, a new Android application is now available on Google Play, in addition to that from the AppStore.

Abvent launches iVisit 3D for Autodesk 360 Rendering

Based on the success of its earlier launch of iVisit 3D for Artlantis Studio, Abvent has announced the public beta release of iVisit 3D for Autodesk 360 Rendering. iVisit 3D converts Revit panoramas rendered with Autodesk 360 Rendering into full, 3D presentations. iVisit 3D's real-time preview completes the panoramas with building level plans and easily produces interactive, multi-node panoramas for viewing on websites and iOS or Android mobile devices. 

Create panoramas and nodes

Users connect to their Autodesk 360 account and launch the rendering calculation in the cloud. The different camera viewpoints are calculated as Panorama images. Users create large, vertical images with six different views of a project. Panorama calculations are launched on Autodesk 360 Rendering; when it's done, they are simply downloaded to a computer from Autodesk 360 Rendering Gallery. iVisit 3D works on both Mac and PC. Users simply import their panoramas and, if necessary, the plan views of the project. The panoramas are linked together and positioned on the plan views. The links created in this step will facilitate the navigation between nodes in the final iVisit 3D panorama.

On a website or on mobile devices

Once the panoramas are linked together and the navigation has been tested, users simply calculate the final iVisit 3D Panoramas in both HTML and PNO formats. HTML allows users to upload their panorama to a website, while the PNO format allows users to view their panorama on an iOS or Androïd mobile device. The PNO file can be transferred to a tablet or smartphone through a variety of ways using Dropbox, box.com and iTunes.

Abvent launches iVisit 3D for ArchiCAD

Based on the success of its earlier launch of iVisit 3D for Artlantis Studio, Abvent has announced the release of iVisit 3D for ArchiCAD Public Beta. Available in English and French, this extension installed in ArchiCAD allows users to insert panoramic cameras into ArchiCAD projects, link them together, and generate iVisit 3D panoramas viewable on a website and on mobile devices. The players that can read these interactive panoramas are available in Flash, Android and iOS, and are free to download and royalty free

Create panoramas and nodes

iVisit 3D for ArchiCAD is a simple palette added to ArchiCAD, accessible from the ArchiCAD menu: Design > Design Extras > iVisit 3D> Show Palette. These tools allow users to create, delete and link the nodes, graphically, in the ArchiCAD project and, finally, to generate an iVisit 3D Panorama. Each node is a panoramic camera, which calculates the six necessary images for a cubic panorama giving a 360° view. The different nodes are then linked together for smooth navigation inside the project.

iVisit 3D panorama calculation
As when using ArchiCAD's rendering tool, setup the rendering engine that will be used with iVisit 3D. When it's done, launch the panorama calculation with one click. ArchiCAD calculates all the images necessary for the selected panorama and calculates a plan view of the project at the same time that will be used to navigate in the project.

On a website or on mobile devices
The result is an HTML folder, which includes a webpage, the Flash player and a folder including all the images. Upload the contents to the server to view it online. To view the panorama on a mobile device, use the free iVisit 3D Builder to create a PNO file, the file format used by both Android and iOS players. Transfer the PNO file to your mobile device using iTunes, Dropbox or Box.com accounts. The iVisit 3D player is available in a free download from the Apple and Google websites.

Ancient city comes to life in 3D using ArchiCAD, Artlantis, and iVisit 3D

BERGAMA, TURKEY, July 18, 2013 – Bilkom has launched a project called “History comes to life in 3D” using 3D modeling software and mobile technology from GRAPHISOFT and Abvent.  As a result, the ancient city in Bergama can be explored in 3D, making it possible for visitors to experience a virtual tour of the historic area for the first time.

iVisit Anatolia, a 3D viewing application for tablets and smart phones developed for Artlantis by Abvent, enables users who visit Zeus Altar, the Temple of Athena, the Red Basilica, and Asclepion, the four ancient sites in Bergama, to explore these historic sites in a 360 virtual tour as they looked originally.  Universities, architecture students, municipalities, and Bilkom worked together to launch the project in a mere 2 months.

Under the leadership of architect Ender Ayd?n, Bilkom’s Digital Life Coach, 12 architecture students from the universities of Dokuz Eylül, Gedik and Ya?ar and a research fellow met twice in Bergama with the coordination of Bergama Municipality Development and Planning Department UNESCO World Heritage and Area Management during weekend workshops. The 2D drawings of the ancient sites were exported to ArchiCAD and rendered in Artlantis, while the unique panoramas were created using iVisit 3D, Artlantis’s 3D presentation tool.

Stating that they were proud to develop iVisit Anatolia, a software opening the doors of the ancient wonders of Anatolia to both foreign and local tourists, Abvent professionals thanked Bilkom for the “great idea” that built upon a similar cultural contribution they developed for Versailles Palace in 2012.

Moreover, GRAPHISOFT, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software developer for architects, stated its contentment to learn that the 3D modeling of the historic sites in Bergama came to life via its award-winning ArchiCAD software.  The next stage of the project, which started with Bergama will be shaped according to the demands from municipalities and universities.
