Like all Theorem-XR experiences, the Factory Layout Experience can be used in collaboration mode, enabling engineers to visualize 3D data with colleagues in different offices or working from home.
Preparing data for the Factory Layout Experience is a seamless fully automated process using the Visualization Pipeline. You can “save as” from your CAD session, drag and drop from the file system or drive it directly from your PLM workflow.
When viewing and moving around your Factory Layout, you are in full control. Use your mini map when in Virtual Reality to get a scale plan view of your environment to help you navigate around the factory or use waypoints to teleport from one area to another area of your factory. With the ability to create, edit and save your waypoints, you can navigate through your sessions with much more ease, whether you are in a single-user session or a collaborative session with other users.
Use built in and recorded motion replay data for a more authentic XR experience. By visualising the movement of machinery and robots in context and at full scale, you can identify the machine paths of robots and other machinery in spaces such as cobot working areas. Combine motion replay data with other features such as dropping in and repositioning mannequins at full scale to make easier decisions and ensure safer working environments with robots and humans.
Use measuring tools to help with component placement or to create spaces with more desirable working areas. You can create a range of measurements including point-to-floor or point-to-point to measure the distance from one component to another, or tools to work out offset and position measurements. Enable vertex snapping to make rulers snap to vertices on components and toggle measurement units between mm and inches to suit your preferences.
Record changes made in your Factory Layout session by adding comments that are captured and stored in the server. You can grab images and attach comments for later review or even record footage with motion replay data to create video comments. As these are stored in Theorem’s server, you can revisit these comments either at the end of your session or for later review, for those that were unable to attend the session or to share with the wider design team.
