ShareBack is the new addition to SimLab VR Sharing, it enables the recipient of the VR experience to adjust and modify the model, and send back the modified version to the sender.

Advantages and applications of ShareBack

ShareBack surpasses the traditional way of sharing a model in terms of ease of use, better files management and the logging of all instances of sharing in a single component.

With this feature, you can co-work on a VR experience with your colleagues, or get feedback from your clients visually.

let’s say you’re working with your colleagues on a certain project, instead of manually sharing the VR experience, then modifying it, and sending it back causing clutter in files and the need to manually log each modification, you can use ShareBack to store all the modified versions along with the names of the users that made the modification in a single VR Experience group.

Same goes for working with a client, instead of sending separate files back and forth between you two, you can use ShareBack to make sure that every interaction with the client is logged and clear.
