Delivering real value from your 3D CAD assets in the latest XR technologies (AR, MR and VR).
Do you want to use extended reality (XR) technology in your engineering and manufacturing processes but you’re not sure where to start?
Discover how Theorem can get you on the road to XR.
XR is the all-encompassing, umbrella term for the ‘reality’ technologies; Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality.
We have created use-case based XR solutions for manufacturing and design. Powered by our Visualization Pipeline it is incredibly simple to get your 3D CAD assets into anyone of the XR technologies.
The Theorem XR suite of applications include:
The Visualization Experience which is the foundation layer of the Theorem XR suite. This provides the ability to view 3D models at full-scale, with the following all adding functionality to this foundation layer:
Use the Product Layout Experience to add the ability to interact with your products at full-scale whilst reviewing associated meta data and full product structure.
Use the Factory Layout Experience to support the effective development of production line or factory layouts. This is available in full-scale (or in table-top view)
The Design Review Experience adds additional functionality for interactive design review and analysis. This can be used in conjunction with the above experiences. With collaboration you can participate in your design reviews from anywhere in the world!
Use the Work Instructions Experience to create interactive work instructions for training or for use on the shop-floor.
It is worth noting that these assets do not have to be viewed using our applications, the pipeline can support your own in-house XR capability too…
The Theorem XR suite enhances visualization in every business. The Visualization Pipeline is a server-based technology at the heart of our XR suite that enables fast, efficient, flexible, and automated processing of all of your CAD, PLM and visualization data, while maintaining the associated metadata.
Our unique approach to the challenge of an enterprise level workflow is built from years of experience with CAD to CAD conversion, and PLM data exchange, providing a robust application that offers full control over your 3D data preparation and optimization for the target formats.
No one else has a tool anything like the Visualization Pipeline. This is a truly enterprise ready solution for all of your Virtual Reality or Augmented/Mixed Reality needs.
Only Theorem Solutions can provide access to your 3D CAD data to anyone that you want, anywhere in the world! And with support for the following formats and applications, you can see how.
We will get you on the road to XR
Our XR specialists will assist you in identifying how Augmented, Mixed or Virtual Reality technologies can improve your business processes, in areas such as Collaborative Design Review, Product or Factory Layout and Work Instructions/Training.
We will help you create the business case necessary to unlock the investment, through identification of the key benefits to your
Our consultants will be on-site with you throughout implementation, so you can achieve maximum value as quickly as possible.
Because we have been working with 3D CAD for over 25 years! We understand your 3D data better than anyone else, because we partner with all of the main CAD/PLM companies. Whether you want to visualize your 3D assets in augmented, mixed or virtual reality, we can get your 3D CAD into your device in minutes. That’s why so many companies choose Theorem Solutions.
Whether your requirement is to share your 3D CAD data with your customers and suppliers using lightweight visualization formats or to carry out design reviews with colleagues locally or around the world. Theorem has solutions to support you which work with a wide range of CAD data and across different XR technologies.
The Next Frontier of Collaboration
Engineers struggle daily to apply physical context to digital data. As Porter and Heppelmann noted in the December issue of the Harvard Business Review, “the rich data we now have to inform our decisions and actions remain trapped on 2D pages and screens”.
Advances in computer-aided engineering have helped to accelerate development and to remove some costly physical prototyping. Ironically, however, the digital development process is arguably increasing the gap between engineers and their creations. Psychologists refer to this gap as ‘cognitive distance’. This is both inefficient and introduces the risk of quality related problems downstream...
Virtual Reality (VR) places the user into an entirely simulated (computer generated) environment, by standing in a CAVE or using a headset (for example HTC Vive). It entirely occludes the user’s natural surroundings.
Augmented Reality (AR) presents a view of the natural world overlaid with a layer of digital content. This can be viewed through the screen of a smartphone or tablet (for example Apple’s ARKit), or limited information presented using a head mounted device (for example Google Glass or Vuzix Blade).
Mixed Reality (MR) places a holographic projection of digital data into, and in some cases responsive to the physical world (for example Microsoft HoloLens or Magic Leap). An MR head mounted ‘visor’ is clear, providing a comfortable view of the natural world (rather than viewing through a device screen).
