Microsoft Hololens in Product Design (15 min)
Jeffery Legan, MTD Products Inc
MTD acquired a Microsoft Hololens as a potential design tool. We were very surprised that the developer kit was very robust. The first use case was in the design of a UTV. We discovered that the key decision makers could make the decisions quicker by seeing the full model as a hologram at scale and walk around and see inside. The results were the avoidence of 2 physical builds of the product. We then created a small animation that we presented at a large dealer convention. The results have been overwhelmingly positive and want the team to do more.
Automating VR & Photoreal Imagery from Teamcenter (10 min)
David Hutchinson, Lightwork Design Ltd
Learn how manufacturers are both automating and in-housing their digital Photorealistic and VR/AR visualization pipelines out of Teamcenter through JT. This is leading to improved efficiency and cost reduction and crucially, enabling control over digital assets that allows them to be repurposed across the business. High quality photorealistic visualization, be it photographic quality imagery through to AR and VR experiences, is being used and expected from design review, internal and external marketing, documentation, training and sales experiences. Harnessing the power of Teamcenter tools and integrating back key processes into the PLM data is the first step towards automation. At the end of the presentation, you will have a clear idea about state of the art visualization technologies, how visual appearance can be shared between those technologies and the next steps you need to be thinking about to start moving your business towards automation of visual processes.
We will illustrate how our pipeline approach can connect together a range of partner technologies such as NVIDIA Iray and Epic Unreal Engine to generate automated visual workflows directly from the PLM. Lightwork Design licenses NVIDIA Iray through its Iray+ technology and also provides bespoke visualization software and services.
Virtual Reality in Product Design (10min)
Jim Maul – Orbital ATK
Orbital ATK will discuss implementation of Virtual Reality (VR) technologies which integrate PLM systems and data with industry leading software in its products. Orbital ATK is developing a VR system based around the HTC VIVE that will allow users to visualize, walk through and interact with their designs in a full scale environment. They will also discuss their research into multiple user interaction in the same VR environment from different locations as well as analysis results data integration into VR.
