With Multiuser Meetings, you’ll be able to share the same virtual experience with others and make design decisions as one unified team, regardless of your physical location.
First, let's verify you have all the essentials:
Each Meeting participant will need to have:
- An Oculus Rift or HTC Vive connected to your VR computer
- If you’re using an HTC Vive, make sure you have headphones plugged in so you’ll be able to hear the other participants.
- Stable internet connection
Next, schedule your Meeting:
The Meetings tab on your Project library is the place to schedule and host your VR meeting sessions. As the meeting host you need to follow these steps to schedule, export and share the Meeting .IVM file.
1. Navigate to the Meetings tab in your Prospect library
2. Create a new meeting
3. Select the appropriate meeting options
4. Export your .IVM file and distribute to your meeting attendees, along with the provided instructions on how to join your meeting
For Meeting attendees:
If you’ve been invited to join a VR Meeting session you’ll need to drag and drop the .IVM file into the Project Library or download the free Viewer App.
We also have a printable PDF Meetings guide that you may download for your VR workstation, here.

General Tips for success in VR:
- Personal space is important in VR; when teleporting do not teleport directly onto other participants.
- Be sure to speak clearly so that the headset microphone can pick up what you’re saying.
- VR is an exciting place - it can be tempting to explore the model on your own! But be sure to listen to your meeting host for instructions and guidance.
