R3DT provides the most user-friendly virtual reality tool for industrial engineers who want to avoid mistakes in the early planning phase. The VR tool is of interest for design review and approval, e.g. for planning of work, assembly and factory layout, in product development, in special-purpose machine and plant engineering as well as in technical sales. Elaborate mockups and real prototypes become redundant. All in all, companies save a lot of time and money.

Smart engineering with virtual functional prototypes

With the VR tool, anyone can generate virtual prototypes from 3D CAD models at the push of a button. Thanks to intuitive handling, the models can be experienced in 1:1 scale like for real anytime – also for colleagues and business partners. Consequently, critical design reviews can be carried out together – quickly and anywhere. Directly at your desk or in the meeting room.

High-tech from the land of ideas

The R3DT GmbH team around mechanical engineer Andreas Ruedenauer, software developer Julien Kipp and business economist Achim Schneider started as a spin-off from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The VR software was developed in 2016/17 in the CyberLab, the IT accelerator of the German federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. Today, the start-up company has its offices in the Technologiefabrik of the Karlsruhe Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK). Including students, R3DT employs more than 10 people there. In addition to the founders, Germany’s largest seed investor, High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), is also involved.
