Workflows Across Industries

NVIDIA Omniverse transforms the workflows in industries where breathtaking, photorealistic, ray-traced rendering is the soul of their designs. The platform is flexible, customizable, and continuously enhanced with new applications and features.

Architecture, Engineering & Construction

With NVIDIA Omniverse, architects and designers can iterate on concepts more effectively and present compelling visualizations of models faster. Collaboration and communication are fundamentally transformed with Omniverse running on any RTX-powered machine—from the laptop to the data center.

Seamless Collaboration

Now, your project teams can be unified on a single, interactive platform—even when simultaneously working with different software applications—to rapidly develop architectural models in real time.

Design to Ray Traced in One Click

Teams can produce beautiful, physically accurate visuals with less effort—no data prep or model decimation needed.

Faster Time to Approvals

Iterate quickly and explore more designs with the ability to export RTX ray-traced quality. Teams, clients, and contractors can view the high-fidelity model on any device, anywhere.

"Collaboration is the future for the creation of 3D immersive experiences. BIM HAVCTool from TIAN Building Engineering is bringing our simulation technology to Omniverse to enable our customers to envision and design intelligent building spaces through high-fidelity, real-time visualizations."

"At KPF, we’re constantly testing new applications that help us to engage with our clients. We see NVIDIA Omniverse as an application that will enable our real-time and collaborative requirements in one platform, changing the way we progress as a sustainable design practice."

"At Foster + Partners we are very keen on interoperability and have developed bespoke software aiming for seamless data-exchange workflows. We've been testing NVIDIA Omniverse and think it has the potential to be part of the solution toward collaborative design processes."

"We’ve been partnering with NVIDIA and supporting NVIDIA Omniverse as it develops. This collaborative environment integrates with Rhino and extends our customers' ability to distribute 3D content."

"We are excited to build this new partnership together with NVIDIA Omniverse and look forward to the benefits that NVIDIA's technology will add for Archicad users."

"With Pixar’s Universal Scene Description, for the first time, our users can export complex city models with PBR materials with lossless conversion. NVIDIA Omniverse expands on USD capabilities by allowing ray-traced visualization of these models in real time with just a single click."


High-Performance Visual Computing in the Data Center Extended to Professionals Everywhere

As the world continues to shift and enterprises across the globe rethink post pandemic infrastructure, enhancing the ability of professionals to work remotely remains top of mind. The NVIDIA® EGX™ Platform for professional visualization enables artists, architects, product designers, and more to do their best work – from anywhere – at a fraction of the cost, space, and power of CPU-based solutions. A highly flexible reference design featuring high-end NVIDIA GPUs with NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software, the EGX Platform delivers everything professionals need to carry on with business as usual, even in unusual times.

Watch On-Demand




NVIDIA Omniverse is a powerful new collaboration platform for AEC based on Pixar's Universal Scene Description (USD) and NVIDIA RTX. Developers of CAD or BIM applications can build portals to connect their products to Omniverse so customers can seamlessly share assets with other industry-standard applications. Omniverse viewer can also be integrated into the application interface, adding an ultra-high-quality real-time ray traced application viewport. AEC faces unique efficiency challenges due to the complexity of construction projects and the number of people and disciplines involved. Many stakeholders contribute expertise and design recommendations making it difficult for all parties to fully understand design intent, leading to project delays and budget overruns. NVIDIA EGX Platform with Omniverse and NVIDIA Virtual GPU( vDWS) software boosts efficiency, lowers costs, and accelerates project delivery timelines.
