How virtual reality can be applied to design engineering and manufacturing

01 April 2019

The way we work is changing, and new technological advances are making design engineering and manufacturing faster, cheaper, and more reactive than ever before.

Ben Bennett, Managing Director at Luminous, shares just some of the benefits that virtual reality technology is set to have on these industries. 

Virtual reality – or VR – is a three-dimensional, convincingly lifelike computer simulated image or environment, which is accessed using a head-mounted display, often with headphones and hand controllers to create an interactive and completely immersive experience. 

At the moment, most people associate this type of technology with video games, but recent advances are opening up new doors for design engineers and manufacturers, allowing them to work on projects more efficiently and accurately. Using VR software as a tool, designers can touch, feel and interact with a virtual simulation of their creations in real time. 

Keeping up with the latest technology is essential if you want to be a market leader, especially when it comes to engineering and manufacturing new products. In this article, I’ll discuss a few of the ways we can expect VR to shake up the industry over the coming years.
