VIRTUAL REALITY TECHNOLOGY FOR SMART MANUFACTURING

In a span of three months, we had the opportunity to run a large–screen virtual reality (VR) display at the AeroDef, Rapid + TCT, and Smart Manufacturing Experience events. As an exhibitor with my Mechdyne teammates, we supported the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ (SME) efforts to help organizations realize the potential for VR and augmented reality (AR) technologies and improve their digital workflows. Although these tradeshows took place weeks apart, we noticed attendees were asking similar questions at each event. Many of them had no experience at all with VR, while some organizations had experience with VR – just not in manufacturing. They were all especially interested in what was possible and what to consider.
