Improov3 has launched with its native CAD viewing powers for VR boosted by a set of useful collaboration features - including voice chat and annotation.

Aimed at design reviews with 1:1 scale virtual prototypes the tool allows for online collaboration in virtual reality, letting teams detect conception errors and discuss solutions and design choices with everyone involved in the project anywhere in the world.

The kit works with standard head mounted display VR, while the addition of A.R.T. or Vive trackers allows for ergonomic studies via a virtual manikin.

There’s a huge amount of publicity accompanying Volkswagen’s push to be the fastest car up Colorado’s legendary Pike’s Peak hill climb, but thankfully it also throws up some cool design and engineering background, as well as some of the unique challenges faced.

The I.D. R Pikes Peak car will unleash its 680hp (although being electric, that means 500kW) of power up the hill later this month, but the likes of Ansys have revealed many of the simulation issues that have been worked on to try and be the fastest.

The unique track is 19.99-kilometers long and features 156 turns — climbing from 2,862 meters above sea level at the starting line to 4,302 meters at the finish line - with the high altitude resulting in about 35 per cent lower air density, creating different aerodynamic conditions than a racetrack on flat land.
