SPK Technology announces the issuance of US Patent 10,482,629 covering a computer-implemented method of automatic optimization of 3D textures models. This proprietary technology has applied use for commercial offerings by SPK Technology, including Kubity—an agile 3D technology platform that automatically optimizes and transforms models for visualization and exploration across any digital device, and ArchiKlip—a web app using the power of cloud-rendering to automatically render and animate scenes in photorealistic detail, then export in MP4 video format. “As traditional design has moved from building physical models to digital ones, the industry has been slow to adapt automated processes that can support user needs on increasingly smaller devices,” said Romain Gora, CEO and inventor. “This patent is an important component of SPK Technology’s intellectual property portfolio, as we continue to develop new ways to make 3D design faster, accessible and democratic.”
When we came up the wild idea to bring 3D models to mobile devices, the technology to make it happen didn’t even exist yet. We had to create it, code it, and launch it. Since then, a lot has changed—and fast. We officially launched our mobile app, Kubity Go, in 2015. As soon as AR/VR software development kits (SDKs) were released by Apple and Google in 2017, we launched our augmented and virtual reality companion apps, Kubity AR and Kubity VR, too. But these releases were messy. Many users wondered why they needed to download three apps instead of just one. And the reason was simple: we couldn’t integrate AR and VR directly inside Kubity Go because the technology at the time wouldn’t allow it. We knew we would have to eventually destroy Kubity Go and rebuild it from the ground up. So we did. After months of hard work coding and recoding, we’re happy to announce the release of the all new Kubity Go with fully-integrated AR/VR for iOS and Android. Super powerful. Super fast. Your workflow has never been more fun.
Introducing the all new rvt2skp PRO plugin for Revit. Rvt2skp enables the Revit to SketchUp export option— conserving geometry, materials, textures, and linked models of a 3D model. This plugin supports Revit 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, including Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, and Revit MEP.
2VR instantly takes SketchUp and Revit models to 1:1 scale VR on Oculus and Vive in the click of a button. No coding or installations are required. The skp2VR (SketchUp to VR) and rvt2VR (Revit to VR) plugins are the easiest and most intuitive way to jump in and explore 3D in total simplicity.
Speed matters , so when Oculus Go and Kubity PRO get together, you have the ultimate power duo that’s bound to wow clients at every phase of a project. The sensation of being inside a model makes VR an incredibly powerful tool for communicating design intent. Clients, in particular, often don’t have the ability to understand spatial relationships and scale simply by looking at a blueprint or 3D model. Virtual reality can evoke a visceral response in exactly the same way that physical architecture can.
SPK Technology announces the new Kubity PRO plugin, a better, faster, and more personalized way to communicate in 3D. The Kubity PRO plugin for SketchUp and Revit streamlines the desktop to mobile process, and makes true one-click AR/VR a reality. Four years after launching the first version of Kubity in 2014, we’ve learned a lot about how to communicate 3D, and we’ve invested over 5 million euros into R&D to give AEC professionals the best way to share and experience your 3D models.
