Witness the yet unmade

Immersive Virtuality is a truly engaging and comprehensive experience that leverages Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR). When combined with simulation, improvements can be seen throughout the product development process.  

Simulation allows for many design variations to be virtually tested, evaluated, and optimized before the first physical prototype is built. As simulations become more sophisticated and complex, they also become increasingly challenging to understand, interpret, and share. Immersive virtuality allows diverse and global teams to experience and interact with the simulation results in ways that emulate the physical world, enabling performance-driven decisions to improve product, nature, and life.    

Try the various experiences and immerse yourself in the concept design phase of product prototypes that haven’t yet been made.


Additive Manufacturing

What You See: The full Additive Manufacturing (AM) workflow displayed in holographic 3D.

How It Works: Designers, engineers, and manufacturers can interact with various AM solutions

Why It’s Important: This simulation allows users to optimize and test their designs before the first build

Bottle Drop

What You See: Simulation of a dropped bottle hitting the floor

How It Works: Damage and fluid mechanics are applied to a virtual bottle to understand how it will deform when dropped

Why It’s Important: This experience lets designers maximize bottle durability while minimizing materials used

Car Crash

What You See: A simulated car crash displayed to scale in 3D

How It Works: A car’s 3DEXPERIENCE twin is optimized for crash safety

Why It’s Important: Optimization identifies solutions early when design changes are relatively

Living Heart

What You See: A 3DEXPERIENCE twin of a beating human heart

How It Works: A virtual heart is visualized in the real world to “see” inside the body

Why It’s Important: Doctors, engineers, and clinicians can leverage simulation to share insights and develop better treatments

Cabin Comfort

What You See: The simulated flow of air throughout a car’s cabin with sight and sound

How It Works: Advanced airflow simulations running through a virtual car’s HVAC system 

Why It’s Important: Designers can get a clear sense of what to change to reduce noise and improve performance

Operating Room

What You See: A digital patient in a virtual operating room

How It Works: Advanced surgical simulations delivered directly into the virtual operating room and to the patient

Why It’s Important: Clinicians and medical device manufacturers can use virtual human modeling to develop and provide optimal treatment
