Get your 3D data ready for XR with the latest release of the Visualization Pipeline

Theorem are pleased to announce the latest release of our Visualization Pipeline solution to address the requirement of preparing 3D data and creating XR content from it.

One of the biggest headaches that we are frequently contacted about is the ability to easily optimise 3D CAD data to create content for use in augmented, mixed and virtual reality applications, processes and devices- both in-house and purchased solutions.

New XR solutions and devices for delivering XR Experiences are evolving at a rapid pace. However, without content they deliver no value.

The Visualization Pipeline is an Enterprise level fully automated solution which prepares XR data. It can take your 3D content, optimise it, and create a repository of XR assets that you can then use in your own applications, or in one of Theorem's XR collaboration experiences.

Using the Visualization Pipeline, you can take source 3D data, whether it’s from MCAD, AEC CAD, Scanned data, ISO/ANSI standard data like STEP and JT, lightweight visualization formats such as 3D XML and Creo View, and neutral formats such as FBX and glTF, and generate 3D content for use in XR.

Whichever way you load data, the pipeline automatically tessellates the data and prepares it for XR. As well as processing (part files) geometry it retains product structure and metadata, including animation data, to further enrich the value of XR content.

Being an enterprise solution means it can be fully integrated into your PLM processes with minimal effort and cost. PLM integration means you have a fully managed solution for XR content creation, eliminating duplication of data and ensuring data conformance to IT policies.

It includes fully automated processes to optimise the data for re-use; reducing polygons where necessary, shrink wrapping the data to remove non-visible surfaces, eliminating unwanted data, or simplifying product structure to reduce data size. This ensures it provides high quality, high performance 3D content for XR. All processes are fully configurable and automated, there is no manual intervention required. The Visualization Pipeline can be installed on the Cloud or on premise.

The Visualization Pipeline saves time and reduces cost by eliminating manual activity, whilst maximising visualization performance and quality. Instead of taking days of employee power to recreate CAD models manually, the pipeline automates the entire process, meaning it’s never been easier to use your existing 3D assets to create your own XR content.
