Solutions To Engineering Design Problems with ARVR
Nothing remains unchanged by the music of technological progress! And what area is to be the most susceptible to positive, progressive change than engineering? It is after all tied into building new technological marvels, including virtual reality devices that will allow you to meet your friends in VR, make various improvements in the field of medicine, make retail better and bring immersive sporting events to our homes. So, what is it that virtual reality does for engineering?
Design & Development
Design and development is a huge part of engineering. However, the big problem with it is that you’re making plans for three-dimensional systems on 2D planes. Well, VR takes care of that!
For example, Six sense’s MakeVR has engineers excited about the easy and organic approach it offers over standard CAD packages. MakeVR incorporates the company’s electromagnetic STEM VR control system.
In result, the user can pull, push, twist, spin, grab, resize and cut up shapes and sizes. It’s a lot more freeform design process than regular CAD and requires much less in the way of knowing how to use CAD systems.
Another great area of design and development is cooperation. VR soft allows people from various different spheres of the company — engineers, designers, ergonomists, marketers and even end users — from different continents if need be work on a single blueprint in real time. This way, everyone knows what is being done and why certain decisions are made. This, in turn, leads to better understanding of complex solutions, shortened development time, reduced risks, earlier customer definition freeze, and more reliable requirements.
