Part of our core capability at Agility3 is the development of top quality, bespoke virtual 3D content. Whether it’s complex 3D models of equipment, vehicles or buildings or vast virtual 3D environments of real-world locations, we have a wealth of experience in understanding your requirements and specifications and delivering the exact virtual 3D assets you need to achieve your goals. We can develop for a vast array of formats and can configure our deliverables to be fully functional and effective within pre-existing simulation environments. We use commercially available tools and standards for our development which means you’re never tied in and our extensive knowledge and experience means we have a large range of tools and standards to choose from as can be seen below…
3D Virtual Environments
Large or small, complex or simple, real or fictitious, whatever your requirements, we can develop stunning 3D virtual environments that are tailored to your needs, specifications and budget and configured to run efficiently and effectively within your simulation platform. We are able to develop from a wide range of data sources including LiDAR data, Vector data, CAD data, Ordnance Survey data and Aerial Photography. No data? No problem, we can source our own data. With lighting effects, collision volumes and building interiors our virtual environments can enhance the realism, immersion and accuracy of your projects.
The virtual environments we create help our clients:
- Engage stakeholders;
- Provide engaging and immersive training;
- Carry out cutting edge research;
- Communicate more effectively;
- Compare design options;
- Make better and more timely engineering decisions;
- Reduce project risk, time and cost.

We have specific experience developing 3D virtual environments for the following areas…
Our virtual road environments are typically developed to be used within our clients' own driving simulators to support driver training, road layout planning, road safety analysis and cutting edge research. We can be flexible to your requirements with all features including road markings, roadside features and contextual surroundings being as accurate as you need. If you need a road environment to run efficiently within an existing simulation system, that's no problem, we understand the development and configuration requirements for commercial and proprietary simulation systems to ensure the best performance of our environments within your set up.
The rail-specific virtual 3D environments we develop serve a variety of purposes including stakeholder engagement, design and engineering decision making, safety analysis, signal sighting and training. Our rail environments can cover a single station up to extensive stretches of the rail network. As with our road environments we can also create track networks that are developed and configured for use within train driving simulators.
We have an extensive background in the defence industry and can produce stunning virtual environments and correlated terrain databases that work with a range of Image Generation systems and Computer Generated Forces applications. We have specific experience developing environments for VBS3 and our terrain databases support a range of activities including training, research and trials. We have particular expertise in the development of large area terrains and terrain paging.
If you need dense, built up urban areas, this is all possible and can help you with design, infrastructure planning, stakeholder engagement, training, familiarisation and more.
Within the architecture and construction market we can produce virtual environments of incredible quality to support design, development and marketing. Being able to visualise designs in great detail and quality can be highly valuable and provides and effective tool for the sales and marketing of new developments. It allows your clients and stakeholders to see new developments before construction begins and enables them to give more informed and timely feedback on designs and layouts, reducing overall project risk and increasing stakeholder satisfaction.
3D Vehicle & Equipment Modelling
To support design and training we develop virtual 3D models of vehicles and equipment. The models we create can be configured for multiple formats and can have varying states, lighting effects, animated parts and behaviour to add to the realism and quality. The models we create are frequently used in the following areas…
Defence Training and Simulation
Producing accurate and realistic looking virtual 3D models for defence is something we have a lot of experience in. From military aircraft to navy vessels to land based vehicles and equipment we have modelled a huge number of entities used within simulators for defence. Our knowledge of simulation and image generation means that models can be configured to integrate into a simulation environment such as VBS3 and configured where necessary to have complex behaviours. Models can have moving parts such as spinning radars or complex articulated features, can have lighting effects, can support Radar and Infra-Red visualisation and much more. The high accuracy and realistic look of the models we create allows for more immersive training simulations.
Equipment Maintenance Training
To have effective and realistic virtual training on equipment maintenance and operation requires highly accurate 3D models of that equipment. We are able to turn complex equipment schematics and drawings into these highly accurate models that support fault diagnosis, fault fixing and general familiarisation on equipment.
