Rehearsal / 2 week look-ahead
Experience a real-scale, animated simulation of planned work while looking at the physical space in which that work will be completed gives a unique insight for planning and managing safety.
Shared view for planning meetings
The 4D model and animations, or relevant filtered parts of them, can also be viewed and interacted with at table-scale. People can walk around the model and interact with it together, for example moving objects, in a 360 degree multi-user experience. This more immersive visualisation creates an engaging space for collaboration and better understanding of the work and project schedule.
Connects directly to SYNCHRO Workgroup Project
The updates can be pushed to the cloud through SYNCHRO Workgroup Project (SWP), and the HoloLens can receive the latest model before any reviewing takes place, whether during a meeting in advance, or at the jobsite.
Users can also compare recently-completed work directly with the model at 1:1 scale and record the status directly in HoloLens. Real-world objects can be measured in mixed reality. Reviewing in this way is easier and more accurate, and the data sent back to the model keeps it up-to-date for the whole team.
Synchronize with .SP File
Once reviewed and submitted, Task and Resource statuses are synchronized with the SYNCHRO model. Anyone with permission can access the schedule updates in near-real-time, ensuring the entire delivery team is informed and productivity is maximized.

How to get started with SYNCHRO XR
To use SYNCHRO XR on your construction project you will need your 4D model shared in SYNCHRO Workgroup project (SWP). Find out more about SYNCHRO XR by signing up for a detailed walkthrough.
SYNCHRO XR app for HoloLens
View your 4D SYNCHRO PRO model in mixed reality in the HoloLens, including animations of scheduled work. A license of SWP is required to access your data. Filter for specific time periods, areas of the project or by trade according to your needs. Track progress directly from the HoloLens and sync updates back to the schedule in PRO to keep your entire team informed and updated.

SYNCHRO Workgroup Project
In order to view your 4D model on the HoloLens you need to be using SYNCHRO Workgroup Project. SWP is a database server for your 4D SYNCHRO model in the cloud. Multiple SYNCHRO PRO users can edit the model, and apps such as SYNCHRO XR and SYNCHRO SITE, as well as third party apps, can connect securely via the API to view and update the model.
