Theorem Solutions has launched of CADverter-VR, its free plug-in for existing users of its translation solutions to explore 3D CAD data at scale, in a fully immersive Virtual Reality environment.
As part of its latest V24 software release designs can now be taken from screen to VR in a few clicks, without leaving the Theorem Unified Interface (UI) or even their local machine.
Using an existing CAD ready PC, Theorem says its users can experience their data in an entirely new dimension, or rather as it is meant to be consumed – at full scale and in-context, only from their desktop machine, whether that is currently at home or in the office.
Existing users of Theorem’s CADverter translation solutions (a wide range of options, including CATIA V5 <> NX) can translate their data between formats and then further extend its use by visualising it in VR, or, just access the native data from the file menu within the UI to visualise in VR, using the free CADverter-VR functionality of the UI.
Users of Theorem’s On-Demand 3D PDF Publishing solutions, (such as CATIA V5 to 3D PDF), will not only be able to make CAD data accessible for ease of sharing in the PDF format, but will now also have the ability to view and manipulate it in a Virtual Reality scene.
CADverter-VR supports a range of VR headsets, including HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
“As an independent company, with strong, long standing business relationships with all major CAD vendors, Theorem objectively offer best in class data exchange solutions to meet many use case requirements for organisations of all sizes which is further supported by the release of CADverter-VR,” said a Theorem spokesperson. “No one product can answer all data exchange issues, however CADverter-VR brings more to the table than a traditional translator.”
