ESI Group announced the new version of its immersive virtual reality solution, IC.IDO 10, featuring the new IDO.Illuminate module.
The solution incorporates real-time physics simulation, reproducing realistically the behavior of virtual objects, such as cables, hoses and kinematic chains. According to the company, users also benefit from an immersive user interface that lets them intuitively engage with a virtual product. Users can now build and manage libraries of reusable elements that can be easily shared between teams.
The IDO.Illuminate module allows users to experience their scenarios under realistic lighting conditions, without sacrificing interactivity or reducing available features, the company says. Complex 3D environments can be created, edited and activated to directly appreciate the visual appearance, showing operating conditions more realistically, to better assess the manufacturability or serviceability of a product. Rendering performance is optimized during runtime.
Also part of this release, IDO.Process is a new module that allows for the interactive and collaborative planning and validation of an assembly process.
