Virtual Reality (VR) is an experience that places a user into a fully immersive and entirely simulated (computer generated) environment, and when used in engineering and manufacturing, enables you to visualize your 3D CAD data at full scale and in-context.
As virtual collaboration and remote working are very much becoming the new norm, we are relying on technology to keep the cogs turning and the communication flowing. Now, bring in virtual collaboration using VR; from an Engineering and Manufacturing perspective, your entire team can be present in a fully immersive, visually rich, virtual collaboration session to discuss a design project or a new training procedure in a matter of minutes.
By adopting VR, companies are finding new ways to get to market faster, whilst removing physical costs and resource commitments associated with everyday engineering and manufacturing processes and tasks.
Our eXtended Reality (XR) experiences support the following Virtual Reality headsets:
Our Visualization Pipeline is an enterprise level, fully automated solution which prepares XR data, designed to address the requirement of preparing 3D data and creating XR content, ready to use in Virtual, Augmented or Mixed Reality. Being an enterprise solution means it can be fully integrated into your PLM processes with minimal effort and cost.
By simply dragging and dropping your data or using “save as” from within your CAD session, the Visualization Pipeline will automatically optimize your data and prepare it to be used in your VR headset.
The Visualization Pipeline supports many input formats, these include CATIA V5, 3DEXPERIENCE, CREO, NX and JT with the option of a variety of outputs, depending upon your requirements.
Our Theorem-XR experiences for Virtual Reality enable you to work collaboratively with your colleagues and suppliers, at full scale and in context. Below are all our experiences that can be used in Virtual Reality:
Being able to collaborate around a design concept is crucial. With Theorem-XR, you can interact and review your 3D data with engineering teams in real-time, regardless of location and without letting your choice of device stop you. Whether you are in the office, in your living room, or on the other side of the world, you can still work collaboratively with your colleagues.
We believe that this type of collaboration is vital for accelerating development and improving communication and efficiency, whilst eliminating the need of physical meetings.
ATM manufacturer NCR (National Cash Registers) have revolutionised their design review and prototyping processes with the help of Theorem-XR, saving an estimated £390,000 in their first year with a ROI in under two months!
Their process prior to using Theorem XR was to physically manufacture multiple versions of the product to conduct their design review, before sending the final design to production.
