6. The Place on First
Impact: First AR Project That Went Viral + First Interactive Kiosk Launched Including VR Support

The Place on First is the first true mixed-use building to be constructed in downtown Fort Myers. To demonstrate the building’s design which blends historical references with modern elements, our team created a virtual animation and numerous photorealistic renderings showcasing the chic urban lifestyle as well as 360 renderings of each residential unit. We also introduced an interactive touch experience that allows buyers to see the view of the city from the 9th floor, change selection options, and take a virtual reality tour of their new home. Through our own Inspir3d app, we used augmented reality to bring this project to life anywhere, anytime with your smartphone or mobile device.

5. Golisano Children’s Hospital
Impact: First Immersive Chemotherapy Room

We’re grateful to have worked with Lee Health on the implementation of the hospital’s first immersive room. We’re helping kids be kids at a time when they need it the most, by allowing them to escape reality, connect with friends and family, and pass the time playing video games or watching movies on a giant virtual screen. It’s been our goal to transport patients to new destinations –to a white sandy beach, to a shipwreck on a coral reef, or even to a galaxy far far away, and we’ve been able to do that with this immersive chemotherapy room.

4. Walsh Ranch
Impact: Largest AR Experience of its Kind in 2017 (30′ x 50′)

Walsh Ranch is Fort Worth’s Next Great Neighborhood, with residents having the best of both worlds–nature and tech–with ample opportunity to be immersed in and learn about both. To convey the lifestyle of this unique community, we completed a large-scale (30′ x 50′) augmented reality model for their sales center floor which highlights the many amenities of the community complete with hotspots that call out each of the preferred home builders and their model homes. The striking photorealistic renderings focus on both the tech features like the maker space and co-working space as well as the natural elements of the neighborhood like the many parks and playgrounds.

Rendering and visualization technology is being used in various creative ways within the real estate industry today. Take a look at some of the ways we’ve noticed it being utilized first hand:

1. A developer uses 3D renderings to create a virtual tour of a new apartment complex. This allows potential tenants to see the complex from every angle and get a feel for the space before they even visit in person.

2. A home builder uses VR technology to let potential buyers experience a new home before it’s built. This allows buyers to see how the home will look and feel, and to make changes to the design before construction begins.

3. A city planner uses 3D renderings to show how a new development will impact the surrounding area. This helps planners to get community feedback and to make sure that the development is compatible with the surrounding environment.

4. Immersive experiences. Immersive experiences, such as VR and augmented reality (AR), are becoming increasingly popular in real estate marketing. These technologies allow potential buyers to experience a property as if they were actually there.

These are just a few examples of the many ways that rendering and visualization technology is being used in the real estate industry. As this technology continues to evolve, we believe that it will play an even greater role in the future of real estate development, home building, and master planned communities.


The rendering and visualization industry is rapidly evolving, and this is especially true in the field of real estate development, home building, and master planned communities. Here are some of the trends that we see shaping the future of this industry:

1. The increasing use of 3D and VR technology: 3D and VR technology is becoming increasingly affordable and accessible, making it a more viable option for real estate developers and home builders. This technology allows potential buyers to experience a property as if they were actually there, which can help them make more informed decisions.

2. The rise of augmented reality (AR): AR technology is still in its early stages, but it has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with real estate. AR apps can overlay digital information onto the real world, giving users a more immersive experience. For example, the AR experience created for Wellen Park, ‘Wander at Wellen,’ leverages the power of AR to blend digital and reality. This experience brings areas throughout downtown to life, enhances sightseeing, and tells stories about the area.

3. The growing importance of sustainability: Sustainability is becoming increasingly important to homebuyers, and rendering and visualization technology can help developers and builders communicate their sustainability efforts. For example, developers can use 3D renderings to show how their projects will conserve energy and water.

4. The demand for personalized experiences: Buyers are increasingly looking for personalized experiences when they’re shopping for real estate. Rendering and visualization technology can help developers and builders create customized experiences for each buyer. For example, a developer could create a 3D rendering of a home that’s tailored to the specific needs and preferences of a potential buyer.

5. The use of rendering and visualization to improve communication and collaboration. Rendering and visualization can be used to communicate complex ideas and concepts to clients, architects, and other stakeholders. This can help to improve communication and collaboration, and it can also help to avoid costly mistakes.

Overall, we believe that the rendering and visualization industry is poised for significant growth in the years to come. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with real estate, and we’re excited to see how it’s used in the future.
