HxDR combines advanced visualization technologies, AI, and machine learning processes from Hexagon entities like Luciad, Technodigit, HxGN Visualization, and Melown Technologies, along with professional airborne reality capture from the HxGN Content Program, bringing HxDR together as an advanced yet easy-to-use platform designed for dimensionally accurate and immersive 3D visualization.
Once you have signed into the platform, you will be presented with your Dashboard, from here, you can navigate and explore the world of content available on the platform either by browsing this content or by viewing selected Tours.
The easiest way to experience HxDR for the first time is to select one of the Tours from the Dashboard and allow HxDR to take you on a virtual Tour of some of the content available on the HxDR Platform

HxDR allows users to upload their own content in the form of Reality Capture Scans (as e57 files) or 3D BIM models as Enterprise Foundation Class (efc) files. These supported formats will be automatically processed and presented to the user in their “Assets” section, where they can be previewed.
For each uploaded scan there are a number of artifacts that can be created, in the case of a scan the possible artifacts are:
3D Models uploaded to the platform will automatically be processed and tiled such that they can be streamed and rendered as an OGC 3D Tiles service on HxDR. For 3D models the only available artifact will be the mesh.
HxDR offers the possibility to download each generated artifact by clicking the download button for said artifact in the Asset Details page. Supported download formats are:
HxDR offers the functionality to place user uploaded content within it’s context combining data made available by Hexagon through HxDR and user uploaded content. This interaction can be done using the controls on the map pages and the “geo referencing” controls. Finally, the tours functionality can be used to bring everything together and make movie like visualizations combining the accurate content from Hexagon with the user uploaded scans or models.
