Viz/Sim, visual simulation, or simply virtual reality is a group of technologies to bring virtual, 3D models to life. This technology has enabled virtual prototyping & virtual design reviews. It supports research in man-machine interfaces, training for personnel, and remote guidance & piloting of systems in hazardous industrial environments.
Sure, augmented reality (A/R) is great for field service and support. It s also an amazingly productive tool for engineering, prototyping, manufacturing, sales, and marketing.
Laval Virtual is one of the longest running, and most successful virtual reality conferences in the world. JPR is excited to announce our participation at Laval, and we’d like our friends and colleagues in the press to come visit, have coffee and dessert. Get an update from Jon Peddie on the industry and participate in the lively discussion.
The popular tool for commercial visualization features new tools for editing interiors and creating complex materials.
After spending five-figure sums on their education, you might think that architectural students would, at the very least, continue in the architectural profession. However, as investigated in a new BBC Business article, many students of architecture “are using their newly-learned digital animation and design skills to break into the world of film.”
Ray tracing is a well understood algorithm and many applications exist to implement it. A synthetic scene can be generated using known properties of light and materials.
One and a half years after the announced intention to acquire RTT, Dassault Systèmes has fully integrated the RTT DNA into the company... Which company has been transformed more?
If designers and engineers are always able to produce physically accurate realistic images from their designs, the process of design changes. NVIDIA wants to enable Physically-Based Rendering (PBR) for the design community.
Native support allows software using Exchange to import models without translation.
The update also enhances GPU ray tracing and volume rendering.
Adding Virtual Reality (VR) to your CAE solution set may be a logical next step in your product realization process. Unlike FEA and CFD results visualisation capabilities, when you import CAD data into a VR program, you will see your designs as if you had made the actual prototypes. VR promises the opportunity for product development teams to identify more issues, optimize manufacturing, simplify maintenance, and create presentations that impress customers.
For the second time Autodesk has turned to Brazilian Thiago Costa to jumpstart its visualization.
Several small companies are seeking a niche; many look to Oculus Rift as the game-changer.
Tougher wearable products and updated software, yet price drops 75%. Fairchild Semiconductor’s Xsens division today releases a new version of its motion capture line for professional animation which they claim delivers more durable wearable sensors and better software at a much lower price.
Luxion an advanced 3D Rendering, lighting and animation software vendor, has released KeyShot 5.1, latest version of its flagship product, KeyShot.
Today, virtual prototyping is fundamental to the design and engineering process. Virtual prototyping entails looking at a design, virtually built, in every aspect. That implies much more than realistic rendering. For Virtence GmbH customers like Volkswagen and Audi, virtual prototyping means simulating, visualizing and interacting with the design.
Digital prototyping of complex engineering and architecture projects is becoming more common. Throughout the design phase, teams come together to review their work. 3D stereo design review visualization systems are more accessible than ever before.
3D Stereoscopic technologies have a special application in design disciplines. The film, broadcast & advertising industries have special issues for 3D stereo. Yet the development of the basic building blocks helps everyone working in 3D.
3D stereo imaging is over a century old, but in the last 2 decades, this technology has transformed the design and development process across many industries.
