Virtual Environment company Mechdyne has teamed up with haptic device and full-motion body tracking company Haption to demonstrate a new CAD system at the Dassault Conference this week that combines the best of both worlds into a new cutting-edge engineering evaluation tool. Imagine being able to not only view your new design in 3D inside a CAVE or Powerwall, but then being able to touch and interact with it via next-generation haptic robotics technology.
“Conduit for V5 plays a key role in extending the capabilities of Haption’s IFC Core product to bring it into an immersive environment. No longer is the ability to interact with the models and haptic feedback only available from an outside view looking in. The addition of viewer centered perspective and immersive display device support from Conduit for V5 now puts the user inside their data creating a new level of efficiency to the design process,” says Matt Szymanski, Vice President of Products for Mechdyne’s Software Division.
