BostonVR Meetup: Autodesk Forge AR/VR Toolkit and High Fidelity

  • CIC Cambridge - Venture Cafe, 5th floor 1 Broadway Cambridge, MA 02142 (map)

Introducing the Autodesk Forge AR|VR Toolkit:

Use the "Forge AR|VR Toolkit" to help you connect into various CAD workflows, like BIM/Navisworks/Revit/Solidworks and use the data-streams directly inside Unity. Unity supports publishing to most major AR and VR pipelines and hardware, so once the Forge Asset is in Unity, you can continue to author your app as you want. The toolkit supports static import (at Unity authoring time) or dynamic import (at Unity runtime).

Social VR with High Fidelity:

High Fidelity is an open-source, shared VR platform where you can connect and create with others. Anyone can use High Fidelity, from students, artists & VR enthusiasts, to business owners and educators. Started by Philip Rosedale, founder of Second Life, High Fidelity is a
high-performance, low-latency platform for unparallelled human interaction in VR. Director of Product Evangelism, Caitlyn Meeks explains the underlying ideas and technology that you can help make the metaverse of your dreams a reality! Learn about world building,
