You want to make a virtual reality walkthrough of your design. In this video tutorial, we demonstrate a free and simple method for leveraging Mozilla Hubs to integrate collaborative VR walkthroughs to your design presentations.

We released a blog article and instructional video last week about a free tool that allows architects of any level to make immersive VR walkthroughs of their small-scale or residential designs.

Using wireless VR headsets like the Oculus Go or Oculus Quest, architects can step through the front door of their CAD models and experience dimension and space in an accurate, jaw-dropping format. The previous VR tutorial showed how a combination of SketchUp and Sketchfab, a 3D model sharing website, can make the process fairly simple.

A free web-based platform for collaborative, immersive 3D content, including wireless VR, Mozilla Hubs is the subject of this second course.


Virtual reality (VR) has a lot of potential for explaining architecture and conveying the beauty of design, but because this field is evolving quickly, it can be difficult to pinpoint the ideal applications for the technology that can both benefit you and your customers. Fortunately, there are some free programmes out there that you may use right away.

We show how to make a step-by-step VR walkthrough of more complex CAD drawings in the video up top. When your CAD programme, such SketchUp, has produced your model, you may use Lumion to display your design in a real-world or hypothetical setting. Then, you can make a VR tour to go along with your client presentations, internal design reviews, and more using a service like Mozilla Hubs.

Check out the video tutorial to see how to use these VR approaches into your own projects. Save the video for later use since it lays down the processes in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step format. Links are included in the video explanation as well, making it simple for you to apply these VR concepts to various projects.

  • You can obtain the 3D model used in the tutorial here if you’d like.
  • Paul Spaltman deserves special recognition for letting us use his design.
  • But first, a little introduction of the tutorial’s history.

None of the products or businesses mentioned in this lesson or the one before have any business or commercial ties to Lumion Laptop. They were just on the market when we noticed them and thought they were practical solutions that some of our consumers would truly value.

We thought it would be helpful to describe how Lumion users may quickly include these free tools into their workflows. These technologies can be particularly helpful when personally visiting clients is challenging or impossible.
