ICE 3D is an Oculus-compatible, Java-based design software that creates interactive virtual architectural environments in real-time. Designers can build interior layouts from scratch or import existing CAD files. Clients experience the software through the use of an Oculus headset that enables them to actually walk through their future space. While in the simulation, clients can swap materials or change dimensions in real time. All changes are instant, allowing the client to experience different permutations of the space. The costs of all changes are calculated in real-time to ensure projects remain on budget.
