A concept Dassault Systèmes VR set up displayed at its Milan ‘Age Of Experience’ event, using the HTC Vive and realtime data capture for immersive 1:1 concept sketching

HTC has announced a strategic partnership with Dassault Systèmes to drive Virtual Reality (VR) into the enterprise space, utilising its current Vive VR headset to bring Dassault applications ‘to life’.

Recent examples of Dassault’s 3D design software solutions have developed to leverage the total experiential immersion and room-scale capability of the HTC Vive VR system, such as that showcased at its recent ‘Age of Experience’ event in Milan, which continues on to Boston, Shanghai and London, where the HTC Vive VR system demonstrated conceptual modelling abilities mixed with realtime 3D scanning.

“With HTC Vive, our collaborative 3DExperience platform provides a second to none consistent experience of the virtual twin of the real world, thus addressing our customer needs in collaborative innovation from ideation to marketing and selling,” said Dassault Systèmes president and CEO Bernard Charlès.

The Honda Jungle Jumper - an autonomous vehicle concept brought to life in 1:24 scale by model makers Ogle

As part of Honda’s ‘Great Journey’ advertising campaign, the entire premise is to try and imagine how autonomous vehicles might adapt for various conditions by 2020.

Rather than us all nipping around in the same hatchback with computer-aided controls, the playful aspect of Honda’s design team was to create scenario specific vehicles - from snow sleds to island hoppers - and to visualise these physically with the detailed models that make up much of the stop motion campaign.

Although Honda’s team are seen crafting blocks of styrofoam into rough shapes and forms of vehicles, the detailed 1:24 scaled models were produced by specialists Ogle, which crafted each vehicle using SLA 3D printing, some high levels of finishing and paint techniques, as well as some delicate hand-shaped details.
