In the VR virtual reality display system to achieve immersive experience has become the current technological innovation and commercial VR mainstream trend. The 3D model into a virtual prototype, directly displayed on the VR system, can effectively help companies improve the energy efficiency of product design, if your business is using Dassault Systèmes Catia, Solidworks, Siemens PLM software NX, Pro/E, 3ds Max Or CAD/CAE software, then everything will become very simple.
While doing 3D design, because the graphics can only be displayed through the computer screen, which complex large-scale design projects audit, coordination and collaboration brings new challenges. VR virtual reality through the VR headset, CAVE automatic virtual environment projection wall and other equipment, the body’s visual sensory organs and virtual digital image convergence, so as to achieve immersive virtual reality experience.
TECHVIZ XL 3D model and VR display system seamless real-time conversion technology
The 3D model of the TECHVIZ 3D visualization software, Catia, Soldworks, Revit, SketchUp, Siemens PLM software NX, Pro E, and CAD software can be exported to the VR display device in real time. Currently, Techviz compatible VR display devices include current mainstream VR headset: HTC Vive, Oculus and open projection device CAVE projection wall. In simple terms, TECHVIZ virtual reality software is a 3D real-time conversion software between VR display devices and 3D prototyping software.
VR display system under the 3D product model into a virtual prototype in the end what are the advantages?
In many complex industrial design, 3D modeling is already the industry must achieve the design process, the traditional operating process through the computer screen will be displayed on the 3D model prototype, through the mouse perspective conversion. Such a review and the actual situation may be very large deviation. If the design flaws are not detected in time, only after the production found, will bring a lot of additional production costs. By contrast, using the VR technology to export the 3D product model as a virtual prototype can change this traditional design review process to quickly achieve error correction and improve product experience.
3D Real-time 1:1 immersive experience
In the VR display system to review the 3D product prototype model, you can make your virtual prototype to 1:1 size presented in the VR system, to achieve the virtual prototype generation. This means that any size deviation problem can be detected and corrected in the VR system. This not only effectively prevents the entity from modifying the huge cost, but also allows the product to be more ergonomic.
VR display system in a multi-person VR collaboration
In the complex industrial design, the use of the main body of the product is often more than one, such as cars and subway design, if more people involved in the entire prototype design process, you can maximize the simulation of the real use of the scene, The design phase can be virtual to the real use of the scene. This can maximize the reduction of the problems faced by a single audit.
When multiple people collaborate to review the 3D model, simultaneous auditing at multiple perspectives maximizes the potential for the product in different spaces.
Combine more than two 3D models in VR
In dealing with large-scale projects, not only need to take into account the product itself, and sometimes also need to consider the use of the entire product environment into the design process.
For example, the subway station, and the subway station design is two different 3D model project, through TECHVIZ 3D scene fusion function, you can subway car 3D virtual prototype and subway station 3D building model fusion, so as to better audit design and Use the degree of fusion of the scene.
VR Displays the digital benefits of the 3D model in the system
In the VR environment, TECHVIZ software can record the entire digital audit process, which for the project audit cross-sectoral approval and review to bring more convenience.
VR you can mark, measure, hide and display different 3D parts in a model designed by 3D tools such as Solidworks, CAD, CAE, Catia, Siemens PLM, Pro / E, 3D MAX, etc., so that the review process And the error correction process to improve the process, a significant improvement in the audit and then modify the repeatability.
At the same time, through a special handle and accessories, VR digital audit allows you to virtual configuration of mobile model components, which makes the use of the entire product experience in a virtual environment can be achieved.
TECHVIZ VR software can support haption IPSI and Virtuose 6D full rigid body physical simulation and force feedback, such a virtual configuration simulation of the product after the physical collision test also covers the product of the early design process. Let your 3D virtual model more suitable for the actual use of the various situations will occur.
Human Body Tracking and fingertracking
In the process of activities, through the bodytracking and fingertracking functions allows you to your 3D model in the free conversion perspective, change your 3D product prototype between the distance and angle. Make the audit more dynamic. This is more practical than static VR digital auditing. And greatly enhance the efficiency of the audit.
What are the different technologies for showing 3D virtual prototyping on VR systems?
Currently there are two trends in the commercial 3D model VR conversion system, one is to 3D modeling software for data conversion and then projected onto the VR display system.
Another system can be directly to the 3D prototype model real-time display to the VR display device, TECHVIZ is currently in this area in the international leading level.
This technology without data conversion makes TECHVIZ’s entire Virtual Reality software a competitive edge. Verification of virtual prototypes with TECHVIZ’s VR can immediately convert any supported 3D models to the VR display system in real time. And 3D real-time display changes and changes. This is more core than the general data conversion VR audit software.
Does TechViz, virtual reality company, has a reliable virtual prototype audit case?
In the industrial manufacturing industry, Siemens, Bosch Electric Company have selected TECHVIZ VR system as a product design prototyping tool. Markus Halbritter, Bosch and Siemens senior project manager said:
«Time, quality, and price are key factors, VR virtual reality can help us in product design to prevent analysis of errors, thus ensuring the quality of our products. We bring audits and save time by bringing simulation 3D design prototypes to a simulated environment. VR virtual audit and product design testing has begun to replace the traditional physical audit and testing, which helps us to save costs and improve performance, but also to speed up the delivery cycle, the digital prototype delivered to the designated place much faster than before! »
At the same time the automotive industry manufacturing giant, Renault, BMW and TECHVIZ established a cooperative relationship, so that their products in the virtual prototype stage ahead of other international competitors.
In the 3D car model to check the design defects, to find a better ergonomic improvement direction, which makes BMW and Renault’s car in the production cycle and put into production when the error reduced to a very reasonable level.
On the aeronautical side, TECHVIZ and Airbus have also established a partnership with the French Dassault Systemes Group to provide a range of scientific tests for virtual prototypes that require near-critical aerospace 3D prototypes. Excellent product quality and delivery cycle.
China Automotive Group is also using the TECHVIZ VR system, so that EM models can be in the virtual environment to get the best test.
