Visualize CAD 3D models and collaborate online

Improov is a platform for collaboration in virtual reality. You can think of it as a virtual office and meeting room.

It allows users to load multiple 3D models and view them at scale one in virtual reality.

The product review can be collaborative, meaning a user in another office, city or country can join the meeting room, either with a classic non-VR application, or with any VR system.

It is currently oriented toward CAD (computer aided design) engineers but it will evolve to support many different business cases, such as architecture, training etc.

Improov is built upon Unity and MiddleVR for Unity.
