  1. Add a new arrow model library. In the “Resource Library” → “Arrow”, used for marking in the scene, currently 7 new arrow model materials.
  2. Add special effects gadgets for electricity, water, fire, and smoke. In “Library” → “Effects”, currently supports modifying the effect color, life cycle, initial speed, number of particles, direction, and other parameters adjustment.

New features of DataMesh One

  1. New support for displaying dynamic guidance gadgets.
  2. New support for displaying electricity, water, fire, and smoke effects gadgets.

In addition, we have also optimized server-side experiences, including

  1. DataMesh Cloud Services (DCS) resource storage policy
  2. The ability for enterprise administrators to configure the default model acceleration platform to save model acceleration time
  3. New acceleration status column on the user resource details page to make the model acceleration status more intuitive

DataMesh Director 5.3 has been published on all supported platform app stores. Customers who have purchased DataMesh SaaS services can directly upgrade DataMesh Studio and DataMesh One client.

DataMesh Inspector empowers building inspection and maintenance through Digital Twin + XR

DataMesh released the preview version of DataMesh Inspector (hereafter referred to as Inspector), an inspection and maintenance toolkit powered by digital twin and mixed reality for construction, transport hub management, facility operations, and manufacturing industries. By superposing BIM and real-time data to construction sites and facilities via AR, Inspector visualizes digital twin data in the real world and enables fast inspection throughout the entire life cycle of buildings and facilities. Inspector is also a portal to enterprise metaverse platform DataMesh FactVerse. It allows users to inspect every piece of digital information behind any real-world entity by mixed reality in the near future.

Inspector superposes BIM models to construction sites in 1:1 ratio

Inspector provides a variety of functions, such as construction problem marking, dynamic loading of BIM, inspection recording, allowing project supervisors, operations, and maintenance professionals to cope with everyday challenges in construction and operations scenarios, like the inconvenience of viewing BIM drawing on-site, difficulties of concealed construction inspection. The users can project their BIM design to the work site in a 1:1 ratio with simply a mobile device, quickly identifying the differences between the design and the implementation. Users can also check the layout of concealed works (like gas, electricity, water, radiators, and other utilities).

DataMesh Inspector Preview provides the following features:

Positioning: Users can add multiple positioning markers, i.e., Inspector Markers, in their BIM models. By scanning the QR code of the Marker on-site, users can project the corresponding scene to the construction site immediately.

Recording: During an on-site inspection, users can record a comparison image of the 3D view of their BIM superposed to the on-site scene anytime, add descriptions (such as describing construction problems) and upload them for later inspection review and issue resolution.

Dynamic Loading: Dynamically load and display BIM content based on positioning markers and user’s movements.

Inspector dynamically loads BIM content as the user moves

Content Layering: Support displaying and hiding of BIM information for layered display

Project Information Panel: Users can view detailed project information of an object by clicking it in the model.

Management: Users can create project workgroups to manage scene resources. Construction supervisors, project managers, designers, and front-line workers can enter Inspector App anytime to view the design and communicate for the next steps.

Offline Mode: Support caching of scene resources. In offline mode, users can access all functions, such as browsing the complete BIM information, viewing detailed object information, and adding inspection records.

Visualizing BIM in the real world and rapidly inspecting parts enables improvements in inspection efficiency, construction productivity, and quality.

NTT DOCOMO Begins Sales of DataMesh Director

NTT DOCOMO started to sell DataMesh Director to enterprise customers from January 31, 2022, as a collaborative solution for 5G in Japan. The solution was selected as the Most Valuable Solution Award winner in the “docomo 5G DX AWARDS® 2021”.

Its main feature is that users can create Digital Twin + XR content (AR/MR content) as quickly as editing PowerPoint, and project it in conjunction with real space with just one click.

Especially in the construction and manufacturing industries, the introduction of XR promises to give team members an instant, common visual understanding of work schedules and status. By eliminating the added cost of complex XR programming requirements and reducing the lengthy time for XR customization implementations, DataMesh Director makes it possible for XR solutions to be used daily within the enterprise.

XR content created with DataMesh Director overlaid on real buildings to check the progress

A specific example of the effect of the solution’s introduction is the improvement of construction efficiency and reduction of project management costs in the construction industry. With DataMesh Director, this complex approach, which once required repeated confirmation of design drawings for construction management, is now eliminated, accelerating the common understanding of work procedures by all parties involved through the sharing of stereoscopic projections of real space. Even some examples show that the total project duration has been reduced by 60-70% by preventing errors and reducing rework.

DOCOMO will provide DataMesh Director in conjunction with 5G, which enables stable transmission of XR content to tablets, smart glasses, and other devices through high-bandwidth, low-latency communications. 5G makes it possible for all parties to agree on work information anytime and anywhere.

DOCOMO will continue to contribute to creating new value and solving social problems by providing products, technologies, and services that utilize 5G networks, including this solution, in an effort to make customers’ lives more convenient and fulfilling.

Xiaoqi Wang, Managing Director of DataMesh Japan

The in-depth cooperation with NTT DOCOMO, the number one mobile operator in Japan, will further expand the reach of DataMesh Digital Twin products in the Japanese market. Combined with DOCOMO’s 5G network and nationwide sales channels for commercial customers, DataMesh Director is expected to provide powerful support for frontline digital transformation for more Japanese enterprises. We plan to further expand our market share with DOCOMO in traditional industries such as manufacturing and construction in the short term.

We look forward to combining DOCOMO’s infrastructure, big data, and other assets to jointly create an industrial metaverse service that fits the Japanese market in the future.
