Abstract

In recent years a range of different VR applications have been developed for the purposes of design review and analysis. The typical data source for a design review of complex models using VR technologies is an underlying 3D-CAD system or 3D styling tool, that provides geometric and topological information of the digital model. The time to adequately prepare 3D-CAD data for a design review session using VR is inherently influenced by the underlying methodology of product modelling, data acquisition, the quality of the conversion and complexity of the digital model. To manually prepare the data without an automated mechanism is tedious and cumbersome. Thus, we describe an efficient methodology and architecture to automate the process of data preparation for the purposes of a design review session in VR.
