3D Startup Real5D Raises $1.2m To Let You Walk Around Construction Plans
Usually, real estate projects have to be sold or rented out before the construction of the building is completed. Even before the construction begins, architects and property developers struggle to agree on the final design for the same problem: difficulties of visualization. Typically, architects or sales agents use floor plans, 3D models and videos, which are supposed to help prospective buyers or tenants visualize the end result.
However, according to Farago, who held C-level positions in the commercial real estate industry in Hungary until founding the company in 2007, photos and videos are not good enough. This is where Real5D technology can help. Based on the floor plans, the Real5D team uses its 3D engine and visualization technology to create an interactive 3D model of a building. The viewer can then “walk through” the virtual model of the building, look at it from every angle, get a perception of the space from within the property, but most importantly, interact with the sales person within the virtual property.
