COINS:FULCRO partnership launches next generation compact BIM CAVE

The COINS:FULCRO partnership is launching the FULmax™ CUBE, a next generation BIM CAVE at this year’s Digital Construction Week in October. The visionary FULmax™ CUBE is a game-changer in the construction industry thanks to its new generation visualisation technology and compact size of just 2.25m (h) x 2.5m (w) x 2.5m (l). The massive reduction in size compared to similar products means it can be installed in offices, on-site cabins and visualisation trucks for rapid deployment to remote sites. 

Users are able to freely navigate 3D models within just 30 seconds due to the simple gaming controls and audio menus, which removes the need for additional user configuration or extensive training.

 This new way of working is set to revolutionize the way buildings are designed and constructed. The fully immersive virtual reality (VR) room enables project teams to stand inside their BIM and 3D CAD models, using near life-size VR.

“Users can easily navigate complex 3D construction models and BIM data in an accurate and highly realistic built environment, interacting with the building’s infrastructure and exploring systems such as heating, ventilation, plumbing and electrical.  They are exposed to challenging realistic problems, enabling resolution in a safe virtual environment rather than out on site.” James Weston, COINS:FULCRO Operations Director

The FULmax™ product range has been developed from the ground up for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector by Dr Maxwell Mallia-Parfitt and his design team at COINS:FULCRO. The team has worked closely with a range of clients including small housing developers and billion-pound infrastructure project teams. The FULmax™ software workflows have been designed to eliminate current complexity in model processing for visualization so project teams are able to work within their existing CAD tools using a single click export. 

The FULmax™ CUBE is now available to rent or buy and is designed to be used as a medium-term or longer semi-permanent installation. 

User support and all parts are provided and supplied by the COINS:FULCRO team, who designed the environment and wrote the solutions software. This gives peace of mind and ensures straightforward delivery, installation, calibration of the equipment and ongoing support.

The launch will take place at Digital Construction Week on the 26th and 27th October, at the COINS:FULCRO stand, M21. The FULmax™ CUBE will run full engineering models from various construction projects, with BIM data sitting behind the visualizations. The COINS:FULCRO team invite you along to experience this game changing solution.

The COINS:FULCRO stand will also feature an Augmented Reality area demonstrating the power of the FULmax product ecosystem, promoting an efficient model conversion process and enabling visualisation across a range of hardware tools that are common within the market place.
