Mindesk

Your real-time 3D design platform - The first VR/AR interface for desktop CAD software

IMMERSIVE PRESENTATIONS in Virtual Reality

2D drawings and rendered images don’t provide a clear picture of the project and can cause misunderstandings.

Mindesk helps you to present your vision effectively to teammates or clients and to get their approval faster.

REAL TIME RENDERING with Unreal Engine 4

Enjoy a photorealistic view of your project as you work on it.

With Mindesk CAD Live Link, you can use Rhino 6 in synergy with Unreal Studio for an unprecedented real-time workflow.

Rhino defines the geometry, while Unreal gives surfaces a great look. Mindesk keeps everything in sync.

ONE CLICK. BI-DIRECTIONAL LIVE LINK

Save valuable time. Forget 3D model conversion and export.

mindesk collaborative

COLLABORATIVE REVIEWS

With Mindesk you can collaborate with a colleague on the same CAD model. While you are editing the model in VR, a teammate can follow your operations and collaborate from the Desktop.

Real-time collaboration accelerates brainstorming and decision making.

 

mindesk techBREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY

Our proprietary engine is based on the most advanced graphics technologies including Microsoft DirectX 12, NVidia Quadro graphic cards, Unreal Studio and OBS Studio to provide the best real-time CAD VR experience.

IMMERSIVE 3D MODELLING

Create and edit your 3D models fully immersed in Virtual Reality.

Navigation feels much more natural compared to the mouse. Manipulate complex and organic design, NURBS and 3D Bézier with your own hands.

Be up to 100% faster at prototyping.

UnReal Link

Real-time rendering for Rhino With Unreal Studio

Enjoy a photorealistic view of your project as you work on it.

With Mindesk CAD Live Link, you can use Rhino 6 in synergy with Unreal Studio for an unprecedented real-time workflow.

Rhino defines the geometry, while Unreal gives surfaces a great look. Mindesk keeps everything in sync.

mindesk rhino 3d exportForget 3D export

How many hours or days have you spent in preparig your CAD assets for rendering?

Mindesk brings your 3D CAD model in Unreal in seconds.

You won’t need to export your model at every change. Actually you won’t export it anymore.

Accelerate your workflow up to 30X.

mindesk persistent materialsPersistent materials

Assign Unreal Studio materials to Rhinoceros or Grasshopper geometries.

Materials will stick to geometries while editing.

mindset light simulationLights simulation

Modeling or simulating. Why choose?

Edit your 3D model while simulating lights in Unreal to keep reflection and the overall visual impact under control.

mindesk rhino cad1-Click CAD import

When your live-link session is over you can bake Rhino geometries in Unreal permanently.

Mindesk will save your CAD components as Unreal assets and generate a Blueprint component that you can use to easily summon the whole project.

 


Rhino Link

Rhinoceros in Virtual Reality

Explore, create and edit Rhino models in VR with Mindesk Live Link.

Rhino is a powerful surface modeling tool. In VR, you will make the most out of it.

Designing organic curvy shapes, and complex assemblies become much easier. The esthetic result is guaranteed as you experience it in 1:1 scale.

mindesk rhino clientsEngage with clients

Some non technical client might not immediately grasp the vision of your project from blueprints and 2D renders.

Immerse them in the VR in 1:1 or reduced scale, show them many alternative design quickly and get their approval sooner.

 

Real-time rendering with Unreal Studio

Work in Unreal Studio with your Rhino 3D model. In Mindesk you will find real-time Rhino modelling, Unreal materials & lights and Ray Tracing rendering in one place.

Parametric design

Use Grasshopper sliders and edit your Grasshopper script directly in VR to evaluate and compare complex parametric design.

Being immersed will help to find the optimal parameters for your project.


Solidworks Link

Solidworks VR

mindesk solidworks desktop/vrDesktop / VR real-time collaboration

Bring your SolidWorks project in VR in a click and collaborate with your team on the same assembly.

While you are reviewing the model in VR, a teammate can follow your operations and edit from the Desktop to accelerate brainstorming and decision making.

 

One click VR for Solidworks

Forget intricated model preparation phases and painful export procedures that waste hours or days of work.

With Mindesk no export is required, therefore, you can jump in VR from Solidworks with a click.

VR visualization and Training

Check your assembly in 1:1 scale in VR . Finding design errors will be much simpler and will prevent extra costs in production.

Interact with the model and animate it according to the geometric mtes set in SolidWorks.

Use VR geometric mates interaction to simulate your assembly and train users.

mindesk solidworks collisionDynamic collisions detection in VR

Will it build? Check the constructability of your assembly with real-time collision detector.

Manipulate parts in 6 Degree Of Freedom (DOF) and when two parts collide, they become red.

Handle a screwdriver or another tool and simulate mounting phases.
