Rolls-Royce sees a positive future for using VR in its aerospace engineering - and is working with academic partners to develop new processes to merge simulation results with CAD geometry in real-time

Rolls-Royce Deutschland has huge CAD models, with the typical aero engine having around 20,000 components (ie. several massive gigabytes of data), right down to individual screws, so visualising them immersively, with a fluent frame rate, is no easy task.

“With such complicated and detailed models, we need to not just visualise in 3D, but also enable intuitive interaction (such as dynamic sections),” explained Prof. Dr Marius Swoboda, head of physical, computational and design sciences at Rolls-Royce.

The team, located in Blankenfelde just outside Berlin, has installed a bespoke 8.5-metre wide Virtalis ActiveCube display system, comprising of three walls, splayed at 130°, with an active floor.
