Omniverse for AECO

NVIDIA Omniverse is a game-changing virtual platform built for collaboration and real-time photorealistic simulation. Project teams can now maximize productivity, enhance communication, and boost innovation while collaborating on the same 3D model from anywhere.

Revolutionizing Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Operations

For teams designing buildings, there is a growing demand for efficient collaboration during design, faster iteration on renders, and the expectation of accurate simulation and photorealism. These demands can become even more difficult when teams are geographically dispersed.

NVIDIA Omniverse delivers unique capabilities to address these challenges and help architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) professionals tackle building design projects from any location.

Accelerating Workloads at Any Scale

Live Collaboration

Seamless Collaboration

Now, your project teams can be unified on a single, interactive platform—even when simultaneously working with different software applications—to rapidly develop architectural models in real time.

Simulate Reality with  RTX Technology

Design to Ray Traced in One Click

Teams can produce beautiful, physically accurate visuals with less effort—no data prep or model decimation needed.

Real-Time Speed,  Offline Quality

Faster Time to Approvals

Iterate quickly and explore more designs with the ability to export RTX ray-traced quality models. Teams, clients, and contractors can view the high-fidelity model on any device, anywhere.

  • Predicting Performance without a Rosetta Stone

    • Donald Greenberg | Professor, Cornell University

    Most creative designers like to document their original thoughts and creative ideas by sketching, doodling on the back of envelopes, or making simple models. At this stage of innovation, it's difficult to predict the feasibility of designs, their energy usage, their impact on the environment, structural safety, cost, and even usage in the long-term future. How can we more accurately predict the future performance of the built environment of these early design stages? We'll describe a new, one-year proposed course for undergraduate design students, from sketch to simulation, "New Digital Tools for the Design in the 21st Century," based on NVIDIA’s Omniverse.

  • Designing for Sustainability in Omniverse

    • Sebastian Misieurk | Global Specialist - Design Computation, Woods Bagot
    • Tianmin Yang | Design Technology Leader, Woods Bagot

    Learn how architects at Woods Bagot use Omniverse to drive sustainability in the architecture, engineering, construction, and operations industry by connecting the dots with environmental simulations and real-time immersive visualizations. Creating connections across teams and locations, Omniverse allows the designers and specialists to see and understand environmental performance in a cohesive visual environment. We’ll look at how working across different CAD platforms and simulation engines is possible in this collaborative environment, while making sustainability performance visually stunning and accessible to all of our partners.

  • Architectural Design, Omniverse, and the Simulated World

    • Cobus Bothma | Director, Applied Research, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates

    KPF (Kohn Pedersen Fox) is a global architectural firm pushing the boundaries of advanced design functions to design award-winning projects. They were early adopters of Omniverse, exploring the server-side collaboration capabilities from their global offices. That led to a strong foundation in using Omniverse for geometry and visual computing, including the simulation and visualization of their advanced geometry and analysis functions. Learn how KPF adopted and explored the numerous extensions and capabilities of NVIDIA Omniverse in a forward-thinking, global architectural practice.
