Virtually Informed Design

Experience a new reality for product development by integrating Pro CAD to VR ready solution from HP, AMD, and Unreal Engine.

The World of Product Design in VR

By delivering a more tangible sensation of what a product looks like and how it functions throughout the design process, VR is impacting product development by enabling more creative freedom, faster execution, and better collaboration. Creating VR experiences places intense demands on hardware and software solutions. In fact, VR requires substantially more graphics processing power than is needed to view the same workflow on a single FHD monitor.

Unreal Engine for Product Development

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What “real-time” means in the context of product design and manufacturing
  • How to actually “experience” the designs you can generate instead of just evaluating them
  • How to leverage the asset you design in multiple ways
  • How to get started with real-time work-flows in Unreal Engine
  • What knowledge and skills you’ll be adding to your skill set to succeed in the generation of real- time design experiences.
