#3DPrinting and #VR: A New Spin on Design and Manufacturing
  • In fact, major 3D modeling companies, such as Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, and PTC Creo, among others, are embracing VR technology and implementing it into their respective platforms.
  • Combining CAD, VR, and 3D printing provide a one-stop shop for bringing 3D models to fruition — meaning you can visualize your creation, manipulate it, and prototype it without the need to outsource any part of the project from the design phase onward.
  • For example, Sixense developed the MakeVR platform, which runs natively on HTC’s Vive VR headset, automatically saves files in STL format, and can be ported over directly to a 3D printer.
  • Sixense designed MakeVR using Dassault’s 3D ACIS kernel, making for a powerful CAD platform with integrated freeform design tools to create 3D models.
  • Obviously, Medium and other platforms like it are not an end-all for CAD modeling in VR, and certainly don’t feature tool sets for industrial and commercial applications.
