tooling program managers, and ergonomic engineers across a variety of manufacturing and assembly industries.
Using VR, engineers can explore scale models of their designs, interacting with them as they would the actual object, or they can adjust the scale for deeper inspection of specific components. Imagine, an automotive engineer being able to view a vehicle at scale in real time, but also expand the scale to get a detailed view of a specific part, like a spark plug. ESI Group's aim is to cut costs and improve efficiency by allowing engineers to verify product designs virtually before any physical object is produced or assembled.
