VIM AEC will be previewing a complete life-size, on-site, real-time Revit BIM experience on Magic Leap’s spatial computing device, Magic Leap One, at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2019 in Las Vegas (booth 9321). This is the first ever public opportunity to experience the fastest, most universal format for accessibility to BIM, aka Virtual Information Modeling, in real-time utilizing the power of Magic Leap One. As the pioneer of the next computing platform, Magic Leap has created with the Magic Leap One a lightweight, wearable spatial computer that seamlessly blends the digital and physical worlds. And thanks to Magic Leap and our architectural partners WM2A, and DLR Group, who are proving this capability in many facets of the design-build life cycle, we’re excited to bring this technology to the larger architectural community.

Going from Design to Real-time this quickly on a Magic Leap will really enhance our pursuit and design review practices in a big way, because it still isnt easy to do with other tools and multiple users. – DLR Group

'Together, we're innovating the next generation of computing and architectural development, and valued Creators such as VIM AEC are crucial to defining that future.'

The VIM file format is the most efficient and compact 3D data format for design data – making it optimized for more devices and platforms than anyone else. VIM enables AEC professionals to preserve design integrity, reduce errors, access all BIM data, and improve the performance of the world’s biggest buildings, all while seamlessly blending into your existing workflow.

VIM is used everywhere. It helps designers, visualization artists, contractors, and owners do more with their large, complicated designs and buildings than anything else. From an 1100-acre digital twin project with hundreds of buildings to a mission-critical life safety event, VIM is proven to improve collaboration, share-ability and access to data with greater integration to the tools your team loves most.
