IMMERSIVE COLLABORATION
WITH CAD XR (CAD TO VR/AR/MR)

WHY CAD XR (CAD TO VR/AR/MR)?

Physical meetings are a costly affair, both in terms of travel time and cost. Global businesses spent over $1.33 Trillion last year on travel alone! The need for physical presence of individuals to communicate with each other is clearly expensive, not to mention the challenges in scheduling such meetings and repeating the same visits for follow-ups. On the other hand relying on the current standards for remote collaboration has also not really improved things. Email and screensharing are not very inclusive and leave a lot of challenges on the table, concurrent interaction and lack of access to real scale of the model being the 2 chief issues here. Conventional CAD XR technologies available in the market also come with their fair share of challenges. While they might allow you to collaborate on your data with good level of shared interactions, the challenge is the employment of a vast workflow of data conversion just to bring data into the immersive environment.
So is there a way for one to click a button to export their model directly from their CAD Application & bring in other teammates and stakeholders for joint reviews, such that everyone is able to view & interact with the data independently? And what if the collaborators can achieve immersive visualization using VR/AR? That would be magical right? Well, turns out that with Exxar, we ended up doing just that, and a little more…

    FAQ (Frequent Asked Questions)

    Huddle allows you to join 3D Meetings from desktop PCs, mobile phones & tablets. You can also immerse yourselves in these meetings using VR/AR devices.
    • Supported VR headsets include the Oculus Quest, HTC Vive & Windows Mixed Reality headsets
    • Supported AR devices include ARcore-compatible Android mobile phones & tablets
    The actual configuration depends on the following factors
    • Size & complexity of 3D models loaded inside Exxar
    • Use of Virtual Reality headsets
    Huddle runs on Windows PCs with 4 GB main memory & built-in Intel graphics chips. However, for enjoying our high quality graphics with a smoother user experience, we recommend a minimal config of 8 GB memory with a discrete nVidia GPU. Your PC / workstation needs to be VR ready for it to be able to run with VR headsets
    Yes!!! All user tools including annotations, X-ray, pick & move operations can be saved to the Exxar.cloud account as a Session.
    No! Huddle only saves annotations on the Exxar.cloud server as Sessions. These can be loaded for future Huddle meetings. Exxar Stream is a one-way secure content publishing tool. We are careful not to touch or modify your CAD files directly. Stream works as a virtual driver with the CAD application to help you securely publish CAD content directly to Exxar.cloud. If you need support for this feature, we will love to hear from you. Please give us feedback here & we might be able to get you a test installer faster than you think 🙂
    Exxar pricing is not available on our web site! Checkout our Pricing page for more information. If you are an Enterprise user and want custom pricing for your specific requirements or if you want to avail special volume discounts, we will love to hear from you. Please contact us & our design consultants will get back to you as early as possible 🙂
    No! Huddle requires the user to go through 2-levels of authentication to run:
    • Login to & authenticate against his/her Exxar.cloud account
    • Host or join a valid Huddle meeting (even if with only one user) to enable the 3D content stream & tools
    If you need support for this feature, we will love to hear from you. We do engage with Enterprise clients on custom standalone builds for specific use cases where Internet access is not possible. Please give us feedback & we might be able to get you a test installer faster than you think 🙂
    Huddle’s user interface currently supports English but language localization is definitely on our near term roadmap. If you need support for a particular language, we will love to hear from you. Please give us feedback & we might be able to get you a test installer faster than you think 🙂
    No! Huddle currently doesn’t support the SpaceMouse. If you need support for this device, we will love to hear from you. Please give us feedback here & we might be able to get you a test installer faster than you think 🙂
