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.
Some companies spend countless hours building prototypes in real life and conducting tests on physical products. CAD software like SolidWorks have helped many engineers and designers by enabling them to work with 3D models. What if you could go even further with virtual reality?
Imagine being able to step into a virtual world from anywhere, using any device. No bulky VR headset, no expensive equipment - just pure, immersive virtual reality at your fingertips. That's the promise of Cloud XR, a cutting-edge technology that's revolutionizing the way we think about VR. With the power of the cloud and the speed of 5G networks, the future of virtual reality has never looked brighter
Are you tired of viewing your 3D data on a computer screen, unable to fully grasp the potential of your designs? Look no further than VR prototyping. With VR technology, product design process can become more efficient and accurate, by allowing designers and engineers to visualize and test designs in a virtual environment.
Collision detection is an essential aspect of AR / VR simulation. Does this new Ikea sofa you have an eye on really fit into that funky-shaped corner of your living room? This really is the question you would like answered when using the AR app on your tablet. Well, sometimes other industries have the same question when fitting machine-tools in factories.
In industries such as engineering, manufacturing and architecture, some of the biggest benefits of testing designs in VR is to assess the integration of different 3D elements or integration of the human factor with the CAD model. Collision detection can also enhance the realism of the VR experience, making it more effective for training and evaluation. In this article, we will define what 3D collisions are and how they can be used across many industries.
Many companies have yet to rely on VR for their process: AEC companies are still using 2D plans, engineers and designers are still working with CAD software developed 20 years ago, companies are still making many physical prototypes to compromise between engineering and design… Those methods are still usable but they entail many constraints and costs.
Digital trust is becoming an increasingly important concept for most organizations. What does this concept cover? It is usually defined as the level of confidence in people, processes, and technology to build a secure digital world. Indeed, as companies embark on the digital transformation journey, they need to ensure that the tools being put in place are trustworthy.

One of the main reasons some companies are still resisting the need to invest in VR is the lack of clear ROI (return on investment). Yet, some companies have taken the plunge long ago and with the benefit of hindsight, they can now tell how much extended reality (XR) has impacted their growth. According to a recent study from Forrester, Mixed Reality (MR) brought in a 3-year ROI of 177% for decision-makers.
As experts working in VR with industrial clients from 2004, we can give you some insight. Let’s see what ROI companies working in the BtoB market can expect when using XR.

A report from Futuresource Consulting announced that the future of VR is bright, with massive investment in the upcoming years. Investments in the shipbuilding industry are not to be outdone, with a predicted $30 billion investment in its digital transformation in the next 30 years. Of course, Virtual Reality is already playing a great part in the digitization of the shipbuilding industry, transforming radically engineering heavy processes into way lighter, friendlier and more profitable ones. Let’s take a look at the ROI of VR and see how VR is changing the game in the processes of the shipbuilding industry.
