Presenter Using Pointer

“Project Skofield”, the VR communication technology that was first previewed by WorldViz in 2016, has now been branded Vizible and is due to launch in October 2017.

Interestingly, the technology is primarily being targeted at sales professionals, rather than designers and engineers – the pitch being that it offers an immersive way of communicating complex ideas to prospects and clients. However, it can also be used for remote collaboration, design review with distributed teams, and product training.

According to WorldViz, the software operates much like a GoToMeeting for VR and takes advantage of VR’s ability to make someone feel “present” in a virtual location, reducing the need for teams to travel.

WorkXplore 2017 R1’s curvature analysis

Vero Software’s 3D CAD viewer and analyser WorkXplore, which can open all file types and sizes at high speed, is now available for trial and purchase directly from the software’s website.

Accorfding to Vero, WorkXplore often takes ‘less than half the time to open a file’ when compared to the original CAD application, letting users build virtual unified prototypes or 3D models imported from a wide range of file formats, including Catia, NX, Parasolid, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, STEP, IGES and many more.

The software saves the native CAD data in its own lightweight format, meaning manufacturers can carry out tasks such as calculating surface areas and volumes, and measuring thickness, dimensions and angles without requiring the original CAD information.

Built around a core simulation application,‘s service is claiming meshing and simulation times reduced by ‘at least 50 per cent’ via the user’s set of Virtual Machines.

The service offers flexible licenses as short as three hours, or a ‘Total Service’ option for a fixed monthly price, and offers a choice of meshing engines between Tetgen (Tetrahedral) and a more controllable product by Simmetrix, with ‘an easy to use API’.

Within the Simulation App is an integrated report-writing facility where users can document the whole product development cycle, and keep track of the effects of changes to simulation variables throughout the process.
