An Honest Review for Yulio as a VR Solution for Architecture from Joseph Kim

November 30, 2023

Recently we had the pleasure of working with Joeseph Kim, an Architecture and Tech enthusiast who is always looking for the latest tech and tools for his audience including VR solutions for Architecture. We had the chance to introduce him to Yulio and some of its features and he was able to explore and learn about Yulio on his own. He has created a video on his YouTube channel that explores Yulio and will give you an honest perspective on how he thinks architects can use Yulio with their colleagues and clients. We urge you to watch his video below, but we’ve also put together a bit of a recap to show the highlights of his thoughts and demonstrate how Yulio can be one of the effective VR solutions for architecture.


Joseph Kim – Dedicated to Exploring Tech for Architecture

Joseph Kim is a dedicated Architecture and Tech enthusiast who loves to explore the latest tools available to architects that can help them with their work. He’s explored similar tech and visualization methods to Yulio such as 360-video, rendering, 3D modeling, drawing, and more. Beyond this, he does reviews of the latest software and tools for architects while also traveling to industry events to report on the latest news.

Joseph's thoughts on Yulio

The main focus of Joseph’s video is breaking down the features of Yulio and highlighting what he thought would be the most useful features to architects. He also does a bit of a deeper dive into Yulio Jump and the features offered in our cloud rendering service. Let’s break down some of the highlights on Yulio as one of the VR solutions for architecture.

Main highlight – Yulio as a 360 Experience Hosting Service

Jospeh’s major takeaway for architects was the ease of using Yulio to share their projects, no matter what software they are coming from, with clients and colleagues. And sharing those 3D environments is as easy as sending a single link to a client. There are no major downloads for anyone and the entire experience is navigable from a browser, mobile phone, or VR headset.


Yulio as a Collaboration Tool

Joseph also pointed out our collaboration tools as a highlight. Again with a single link, users can be invited from all over the world to join a collaboration session. They can join on a desktop, mobile, or VR headset. In these sessions, hosts can walk viewers through the environment and highlight specific features or aspects of the project. As well with markup tools, viewers can mark up the project and make quick notes or point out points of interest.

Mass Compatibility

Another highlight for Joseph was the ability to upload 360 scenes from a variety of software thanks to Yulio's wide range of compatibility with 360 image files. You can render a 360 environment with your software of choice and make it as pretty as you want it. Then simply export as a 360 image to be uploaded and hosted on Yulio to share with clients easily. With any file, you can add hotspots that can allow you to add audio, text, and images to any project to make the experience more personal or to offer more information about the project.

Yulio Jump – A Project Saver

Joseph did a deep dive into Yulio Jump to examine our cloud rendering service available in as a plugin for several design programs including Revit. He appreciated that Yulio jump really cut down the number of steps that it would take to get a project fully rendered and then uploaded to Yulio. He also stressed that the ability to create something rendered so quickly could be a project saver if you’re working to get something to a client as quickly as possible. Something that happens all too often in the architecture world.

Final thoughts

Overall we urge you to watch Joseph’s video for a well-thought-out breakdown of Yulio and to get an honest perspective from someone who has been exploring tech tools for the architecture industry for some time now. We hope you can get a better sense of where Yulio stands with tech users.

There’s lots we haven’t touched on here and Jospeh does a great job of laying it all out for anyone to better understand how Yulio can be a tool in their architectural journey.
