A CAVE allows users to:
- Feel the 3D model floating in space, while still seeing their hands and other people
- Analyze spatially-related data
- Navigate in life-sized environments
- Focus on data with a fully integrated display, software, computing and support solution
Typical CAVE set up
A typical CAVE set up includes the following equipment:
- Rear projection walls
- Down projection floor
- Tracking sensors in the walls
CAVE users wear a pair of Virtual Reality glasses which display a three dimensional image via a process known as stereoscopy. The 3D effect is rendered by displaying two images – one per eye – which allows the brain to interpret the depth of the objects. With the help of a tracking system which records the person’s actions inside a CAVE, the point of view of the user is defined to display the images with the right perspective.
TechViz XL Virtual Reality Software
Thanks to TechViz XL, a VR software, the users will be able to navigate within their 3D models in 1:1 scale and visualize their product before it is actually built. Easy and flexible, TechViz XL can display more than 200 3D modelling applications without data conversion. Acting like a driver, TechViz XL displays applications such as CATIA V5 or V6 (now 3DExperience), PTC, Siemens, Autodesk, Intergraph, Aveva, Unity by just starting the application and loading the model.
