TrimblelogoSUNNYVALE, CA, Dec 15, 2016 – Trimble announced that it is collaborating with Umbra to explore the use and integration of Umbra 3D graphics optimization technology as part of its mixed-reality solutions to process and optimize complex 3D building information models (BIM). The collaboration is part of Trimble’s Mixed–Reality Pilot Program and solutions strategy to enable users to gather, analyze, visualize and share spatial information in a mixed-reality environment.

The growth of BIM and mixed reality has placed increased demands on wearable technology when working with large or complex 3D models. As part of the Trimble Mixed-Reality Pilot Program, Umbra technology can be used to optimize the performance of 3D graphics applications. The software automatically reduces the triangle count and generates varied levels of detail of the 3D content. When viewing the 3D visualization, Umbra is able to choose the right level of detail and show only the objects that are visible to the…
