Trezi, a Virtual Reality product developed by SmartVizX, is set to transform the building industry by facilitating seamless communication between designers, clients and collaborators. Integrating real product data and manufacturer catalogues in the virtual workspace, Trezi adds an unprecedented layer of accuracy to the design experience.
India’s first Virtual Reality product for the building industry, Trezi enables collaboration in the virtual space. The latest version of Trezi (v1.8) enables architects and designers to step into the virtual world and review, modify and experience the project with their colleagues and collaborators in real-time, irrespective of their geographical location. Edits made to the full-scale representation can then be saved to the Trezi workspace, which is fully compatible with popular architecture design software such as SketchUp, Rhino and Autodesk’s Revit; projects created using these softwares can be easily uploaded on Trezi, which itself is hosted on the cloud.
Trezi v1.8 also introduces an exterior rendering mode that significantly improves the rendering quality of exterior scenes, and offers photo-realistic shadows with minimal culling of objects. With enhanced support for remote collaboration and audio add-ons in the pipeline, Trezi is set to and raise the bar for design-based collaboration in the building industry.
Trezi has been developed as a SaaS product under the Microsoft Accelerator in India program, and now hosts its collaboration and product integration features on Microsoft Azure, making the product faster, more efficient and agile than ever before.
With the aim to transform traditional design visualization and communication methodologies in the country, SmartVizX devised Trezi, a fully-immersive Virtual Reality product. Launched in 2018, Trezi has been co-created by architects Tithi and Gautam Tewari, who experienced design communication challenges in their practice and decided to solve these problems through VR. .
