Explore the New Dollhouse, Sun and shadows features with Sentio VR


Feature update

Traditionally the Design and Construction professionals have to juggle between the immersive VR client presentations and Non VR devices for 2D content like images, floor plans and excels. This process of not being able to have everything together in one place in a VR environment disrupts the flow of presentation but also hinders the full potential of VR in these industries.


Our Newest Update bridges this gap. Now, users can upload a variety of 2D content directly into their VR presentations. This integration includes diverse file formats such as floor plans, MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) layouts, Excel, PowerPoint, Word documents, and photos keeping all necessary presentation materials in one immersive environment.


How to add 2D images on the screen in the dollhouse?

The user-friendly and intuitive web portal of Sentio VR (app.sentiovr.com) allows you to seamlessly attach and manage your 2D assets specific to each model, so that you have everything in one place that you need for your engaging presentations and design reviews.


Adding 2D images to the screen of the dollhouse is very easy. Customize the sequence of your 2D assets, much like arranging slides in a presentation which controls the narrative flow and enhances the impact of your VR presentation.

Sun and Shadows Feature: Tailored for every scenario

The other feature that has been added is the Sun and shadows feature which improves visualization by adding shadow based on the time of the day and helps professionals present their projects in VR with an additional layer of depth and realism.


With the ability to toggle shadows on and off and adjust the time of day, users can now showcase their designs under varying light conditions ranging from 6 am to 7pm. Whether it's the soft glow of a 6:00 am sunrise or shadows of noon, this feature allows for a realistic representation of how the Sun interacts with structures.
