Immersive Terf – Success Stories

Urban Planning And Architecture – Dr. Anja Jutraž

5Urban planning and architecture are disciplines where constant collaboration between different actors is necessary and 3D models are used to present future development projects. The Immersive Terf enables Citizen Engagement in Urban Planning – citizens, city and profession can meet, collaborate, discuss future problems etc. in Terf. The opportunity to walk-through future city/your neighborhood before it is build is important. As Terf is accessible from anywhere, anytime, it saves time and money for everyone who is involved in this process.

At the PBL lab, we have worked with 3D ICC’s Terf for over 5 years.  Our integrated R&D and education program focuses on AEC global teamwork engaging cross-disciplinary, globally distributed architects, structural engineers, MEP, construction managers, life cycle financial managers, and clients. Our research shows that using the immersive TERF significantly impacts product quality and process agility Terf enables team members to import large BIM models into the virtual world, experience and troubleshoot the virtual BIM building together as avatars to scale. Terf offers a platform in which global teams co-create their collaboration space that persistently maintains their content and models in context.

Terf is the only solution I’ve seen that gives an agile team a persistent virtual workspace while supporting collaboration with fidelity and immediacy approaching fact-to-face interaction.

Prof. Ulisses Araujo – University of Sao Paulo (Brazil)


The University of Sao Paulo and the Virtual University of Sao Paulo have adopted Terf as a main platform for its innovative curriculum based on Problem and Project-Based Learning courses, understanding that its characteristics fits perfectly to use of active learning methods. The use of TERF for over 3.000 students simultaneously was a big challenge that was faced and overcome with the hard work of 3DICC which provided all the support and tools our team in Brazil needed. The use of TERF proved to be an excellent platform to transform and re-invent education accordingly to the needs of 21st century demands and TERF delivered an innovative blended virtual classroom in Portuguese to our many students. But most important of all, students loved it, and acknowledged the usability and easiness of access even in situations with low broadband available in many places in Brazil.

3D ICC’s Terf has been a vital part of the solution we provide for the Soldier For Life (ACAP) training program for the US Army for over 5 years.  Terf ensures the US Army can offer this training anywhere around the world and makes it engaging.  3D ICC is a great partner!
