4Dive - A 4D Interface for the Visualization of Construction Processes in a Virtual Environment
Abstract: In this paper we present 4DIVE, an interface concept for the visualization of construction processes in Virtual Reality (VR). It supports process management tasks of the AEC industry in the field of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC). 4DIVE is developed for the use in projection based Virtual Environments (VEs) like the CAVE or large scale projection walls, supporting stereoscopic visualization in real-time and 3D user tracking. The 4DIVE project focuses on the design of interaction concepts addressing the following topics: (1) The integration and visualization of 4D CAD models in VR systems, (2) the development of 4Record, a tool for recording and replaying paths in the 4D time-space, and (3) the design of suitable input devices and interaction techniques.
