CATIA V5 to VR: Enhance your CAD design process with no data conversion

Posted by Sandrine Lasserre on Jul 4, 2023 5:43:09 PM

Looking for a way to enhance your design/engineering/manufacturing process when working with CATIA V5 models? A great solution lies in 1:1 scale visualization with Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). These immersive technologies close the gap between the 2D screen of your CAD application and the physical world, and allow industries to exploit the power of digital prototyping as a competitive advantage.

And it gets even better when no 3D data is translated from your native CATIA V5 application to the VR environment.
