IPSI connector functionality : An interface between TechViz XL and Haption IPSI engine

Force-feedback, also called “haptics”, is a very efficient interaction technology. It enables a physical interaction with virtual or remote objects. The IPSI connector functionality by TechViz is an interface between Haption IPSI engine and our VR software TechViz XL.

Create groups of objects in TechViz XL with the IPSI connector option…

Change their position with the 6 Dimension force feedback via Haption technology!

TechViz IPSI Connector integrates the «Interactive Physics Simulation Interface» haptic toolkit into TechViz XL. This makes your haptic system and/or software compatible with your 3D models from Siemens NX, PTC Creo and more than 250 3D applications supported by TechViz XL, for an immersive and complete interactive experience in Virtual Prototyping!

How does it work?

It acts like an interface between the Haption IPSI engine and TechViz XL. TechViz XL, virtual prototyping software is a driver displaying your 3D model directly from your desktop application into a virtual environment. Haption IPSI is a software library for physical simulation with force feedback developed by Haption in collaboration with CEA list.

Load data directly in your 3D application, no preparation or data conversion is required. Define your simulation interactively by choosing selected parts and start the IPSI simulation. Then, manipulate parts either with a tracked device or Haption haptic device.

Physics apply in real time: rigid body, unilateral and bilateral constraints …

Use cases

  • Assembly simulation
  • Ergonomic assessment
  • Human validation
  • Project validation

Why use the IPSI connector option?

Optimize your maintenance, train your team, review your projects, increase your competitiveness using force-feedback technology in a 3D environment.

Save time and cost! Force-feed back is used for simulating the operations necessary to manufacture product, long before the first prototype is built: thus, companies reduce technical risks and improve assembly processes.
