How does Virtual Reality apply?

By applying the moreViz VR bridge software to the Siemens NX Mechatronics Concept Designer, all simulation is transferred seamlessly into any Virtual Reality device. Seeing the simulated machine in a 1:1 scale is not possible on traditional 15 inch laptop displays, neither on 27 inch desktop monitors. With virtual reality visualization this barrier between the digital model and the viewers eyes is easily removed: with the moreViz software the user is enabled to see the virtual machine operate in life-like size relation with real stereo 3D impression. The user can even operate the machine’s virtual control panels from within the VR environment.

What is the benefit of using Virtual Reality?

Reducing the time to market:
Applying Virtual Reality to e.g. new production lines, which are yet only available as digital mockups, enable quicker training of operators, workers and maintenance crews. Setup time for the line is reduced, workers come to the new line already knowing what the layout is and how production works – without loosing a single day.

See it before your build it:
A few years back products had to by physically built to see their realistic impression. With VR visualization this need is gone. Realistic product viewing and changing parts, designs and tuning it to your needs is easier than ever before.

Less Prototyping:
Prototypes and cardboard mockups are time- and resource consuming, yet they deliver great understanding of the project extents. Virtual Reality visualization delivers many insights on the project extents in a similar way, with a great availability advantage: with more3D’s tech VR is directly connected to your CAD app, virtually without preperation time.

More inspired design processes:
Product designers and engineers not only face functional but also aesthetical challenges. Working on a flat screen shows the new mockup from one view with limited interaction possibilities. With VR visualization, directly attached to the CAD, mirroring every change on the model, immersive visualization and natural interaction enables for seeing a whole new perspective on the new product, unleashing more creative solutions and ingenuitive ideas.

Better communication:
Explaining a design ideas to collagues from other departments can be challenging with conventional visualization. Colleagues from other departments might not be familiar with technical drawings and CAD at all. This is where Virtual Reality visualization optimizes the flow of information: directly linking CAD into 3D stereo or VR visualization allows non-specialists to understand quicker about new designs and layouts.
