CADMATIC eShare for HoloLens – Marine

eShare for HoloLens is an app that allows the user to interface Microsoft HoloLens* with CADMATIC eShare. It offers an entirely new interactive design and engineering experience in Augmented Reality where digital 3D models reside in the real-world environment.


Key benefits

  • Load models from the eShare server and use them offline
  • Align 3D model with existing environment
  • Load and visualize object data from eShare or any connected system
  • Measure distances between digital items, digital and real items, or just real items
  • Shared experience for collaboration in multi-user environment
  • The app is free of charge for users of CADMATIC eShare version 2018T3 and higher

eShare for HoloLens provides a new way to utilize eShare data. It includes tools for loading the 3D model from the server and using it offline, scaling, moving and aligning the model with real objects, showing attribute data and taking measurements

eShare for HoloLens aims to facilitate project and design reviews in AR and assist production status supervision and comparison of design projects with as-build situation. It also helps users to envision future project designs for discussion with owners and operators and provides the possibility to ensure good ergonomics as well as the training of maintenance and operational staff already during the design phase

Reviewing projects and working on site are the two main use cases of eShare for HoloLens.

For project review, designers and stakeholders can use HoloLens to review a 3D model and its associated data. The user can set the desired scale of the model. The miniature model can be viewed on a meeting room table, or the user can walk through the full-size model in an office or any open space.

For on-site work, users can download models for offline use and bring it to the building site. The users can align the model with the actual installations and see proposed changes or future designs on top of the existing environment. Two or more users can create a session simultaneously in the same model and location for a shared experience and collaboration.
