CAD XR is a VR App.


CAD XR is a visualization tool that allows users to view their CAD (computer-aided design) models in virtual or augmented reality. Our user interface is extremely simple and intuitive, though also allows for a wide array of customization options. Viewing models in CAD XR gives users a true visualization of their projects before any physical models are built. ​ In the construction or architecture industry? Walk through a building or view a structure in 1:1 scale to get a true sense of the size. ​ Work with microelectronics often? Increase the scale of a microchip to a size large enough to see every individual part.

In a medical field? Allow patients to judge the size of a prosthetic limb in VR to see what best fits them. ​ Save time and money by using virtual reality to examine CAD models before they're physically made.

CAD XR supports the following formats:

  • AutoCAD DXF (.dxf)
  • Collada (.dae)
  • Stereolithography (.stl)
  • Wavefront Object (.obj)
