VRgineers’ (Marina Del Ray, Calif., U.S.) XTAL virtual reality (VR) system is now compatible with Dassault Systèmes’ (Waltham, Mass., U.S.) 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including applications CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, ENOVIA, DELMIA and SIMULIA.
The addition of 3DEXPERIENCE compatibility enables engineers to get the most out of both software systems, VRgineers says, without having to invest in additional powerwall, projection systems and cluster infrastructur
The added software support is said to enable engineers to utilize a powerful VR solution capable of total immersion for the powerful 3DEXPERIENCE platform, instead of being required to invest in a costly Powerwall, projection systems and cluster infrastructure. According to the company, XTAL offers high resolution and an excellent optical system.
With immediate support for all non-administrative applications on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, XTAL will initially enable basic VR functionality, meaning full control of navigation, measurements, sections and more.
“With its ultra-high resolution visuals and peripheral vision-filling field-of-view, XTAL allows users to make better decisions in color and trim, because fine material details can be clearly seen and evaluated. Our clients also see a benefit in perceived quality reviews where gap measurements and tolerance simulations are judged based on their effect on the subjective, perceived build quality of a product,” says Marek Polčák, VRgineers co-founder and CEO.
