Microsoft launched the HoloLens 2
Microsoft launched the HoloLens 2! Maybe you don’t know what I’m talking about, or what benefits it has for you. But our software engineers at Studio X do! They are very enthusiastic about the new features that have been launched by Microsoft.
The HoloLens 2 interacts more with the real world, it has a much wider field of view and it is much simpler to use. In addition, the development is focused on the industrial application.
It was at the CES 2019 in Las Vegas that we launched our BIM2AR tool for the first time. We used the Hololens 1 to show the world how the future of production looks like. We have already received a huge number of nice reactions from interested people around the world. Some of the features of our BIM2AR tool are that we can place a 3D model with less than 2-millimetre (5/64 inch) accuracy, we can do measurement functions, quality checks and because we are connected to a database you always use the latest 3D model. With BIM2AR you will be able to measure up to 70% faster and reduce 15% of the production costs.
Our software is ready for the HoloLens 2. Because of that, we are now able to bring more features to our BIM2AR tool. Now it is easier to use, for instance you can push buttons simply by pushing with your finger on a projected bottom right in front of you. With the wider field of view, we bring a whole new interface so you can see more additional information projected right in front of you.
We are working and testing with our clients on the 2.0 version of the BIM2AR tool. It has a lot of new functions. The dashboard has a new look, our software platform will be updated, and the tool is more stable. With the launch of the HoloLens 2 it will give you even more benefits.
Our first version was developed for only the measurement purpose in production. The second version can also be used for predictive maintenance. It will give you the tools to do inspections, check parts if they are working properly, give you up-to-date additional information and it will give you work instructions.
