Start a Collaborative Session

What is it?#

A collaborative session connects multiple SkyReal users to the same simulation. The goal is to allow these users to interact in the same environment around a product, all in VR. These users can add annotations, manipulate objects and do much more together.

How to do it?#

To start a collaborative session, a computer using SkyReal must run as a server and will act as a host for the session. Other computers with SkyReal will then be able to connect as clients to the server.

Requirements#

All of the computers must be able to communicate. If you wish to collaborate between two distinct places and networks, you will have to set up a VPN connexion (or contact your IT). For any collaboration issue see the troubleshooting.

All computers must use the same simulation files. This can be achieved by:

  • Placing the simulation files on a shared folder accessible to all of the computers

    OR

  • Copying the simulation files on every single computer (this method is longer to deploy but loads faster in SkyReal)

Start the server#

One computer will run as a server. It is recommended to use an Ethernet connexion for the server.

  • Send your IP address to the other users
