    This class will be an in-depth look at one firm's road into virtual reality (VR) and how we use it as a design tool. The road was unpaved and littered with skeptics and the unknown. Pushing forward led us somewhere unexpected. We'll run through a case study involving upwards of 10 active projects that benefited from and pushed our knowledge of VR. Using a live Vive demonstration, we'll go inside these projects and show how they benefited from this new technology. There will be time at the end for questions, and the opportunity for attendees to get hands-on with our builds. This discussion will include a basic understanding of our workflow, translating models from Revit software into 3ds Max software then into the Stingray gaming engine and also Unity.
