We need more tools in meeting!
Can you add way to open revit views, pdf, dwg, (aslo some jpg, doc files) . drawings in side 3d environment. Maybe start one format at a time to test but later add more. These drawing should also be uploaded in your cloud environment.
So it could open a real new area do have discussions meetings on vr with builders,engineers, architects owner..and so on.
It would be very useful to discuss through entire project even 2d drawings with our clients in same time being in side 3d model.
Our clients are located 1000km or more from us and it would be realy innovation that we could discuss about 2d detailed drawings also in the same 3D space .
*HTC vive device cant fly inside model but Oculus Rift device can. Can you add fly to htc vive also this problem.
*Need for selecting multiple elements in same time and hide or isolate them .
I like irisvr a lot and think it is one off the best available but you have to add new features to be leader in this area in future.
I would be ready to be testers for it and give real feedback from engineering point of view if needed.

Thanks so much for this feedback, and glad to hear that you've been having success with the software!
While bringing 2d files into VR isn't on our roadmap currently, I'll definitely communicate your requests to our team for further review, as I agree that those use cases are compelling!
We're working on bringing flying functionality to the Vive, so you should see this in an upcoming release.Comment actions
A section tools for inside the model would be great. NVIDIA has a prototype where you cut with a section ball. See the following video:
For 2d documentation, I think the best thing would be to allow users to access heir desktop through streaming and share it. A little bit like "BigScreen" for VR.
If you know about how many PDFs architects create and store, there is no way you want all that junk in VR. there are thousands of useless PDFs and terrible management systems.
The only smart long term alternative would be to plug into BIM 360 through Autodesk Forge. there, teams will store versioned versions of the PDFs and live BIM 2D documents.
This would be extremely useful for any firm using Revit to collaborate on large projects as it would tap directly into the industry's most useful collaboration tools. You could also use it to get the latest version of the Revit model and 2D documentation at anytime.
These are great resources and suggestions, I've added these requests to our development board for my product team to review. With an upcoming release, you'll be able to hide individual elements in VR, which will help accomplish something similar to the section tool in Real Scale Mode. We also have some updates planned regarding the BIM data from Revit that will be accessible in VR - so if you have any thoughts to share, please send us a message at email@example.com
Beyond the section ball/cube, I was thinking that it could be useful to have something similar to the section box in Revit.
Whether you are in "model mode" or "human mode" as ling as you can float. This would be more sweeping than hiding elements. for example, to get a section view of a wall, hiding element won't work. Generally in architecture, you want to cut to see intersections rather than hide individual components.
Of course, it could be a bit weird in terms of UI, especially if sharing a space with others since many people would just be left in the void. Perhaps there needs to be a better system for floating around comfortable. Like in one ar VR experience, people move around by putting their hands forward like superman.
Generally, the section ball/cube void would answer most of my problems, especially if I can change its shape and size.
I also analyzed the software for about two weeks and left a brain dump here:
I'm on vacation for another week, so I would be more than happy to chat with your team in the upcoming week if that is something you would be interested.
I found a cool plugin for a dissolve ball/cube
