Anark and WorldViz to demonstrate streamlined workflow between products at annual Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation & Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2008
Boulder, CO, December 1, 2008: Anark Corporation, the leading provider of automated 3D CAD transformation and visualization solutions, today announced WorldViz as an Anark Value Added Reseller and Solution Partner.
WorldViz is an industry leader in interactive virtual reality solutions. Their virtual reality software toolkit Vizard empowers users to create real-time immersive 3D interactive simulations for product visualization, computer-based training, architectural walk-through's, and entertainment.
"We are very excited to collaborate with WorldViz due to the quality, value, and performance of their interactive virtual reality solutions," said Anark CEO, Stephen Collins. "We look forward to demonstrating the streamlined workflow when utilizing Anark Core to prepare and simplify 3D CAD geometry for WorldViz's interactive virtual reality software toolkit at this year's I/ITSEC Conference. It is a potent combination."
As an Anark Value Added Reseller and Solution Partner, WorldViz will market the Anark Core Platform, an innovative software solution that quickly and easily transforms native 3D CAD data for use in applications throughout manufacturing, design, engineering, and support organizations.
"Converting rich CAD data into real-time interactive visual simulation applications has traditionally been a headache requiring costly recurring human intervention. With the combined power of Anark and WorldViz software tools we now can provide an amazingly easy and largely automated workflow. Updating real-time content out of your CAD software is now literally as simple as a button-click," said WorldViz President, Peter Schlueer. "With Anark Core and Vizard, you can leverage your CAD assets by creating next-generation real-time interactive applications for virtual prototyping and training, thereby dramatically reducing the cost of your engineering processes."
The latest version, Anark Core 2.0 provides users with expanded conversion transformation, and automation capabilities to cost-effectively prepare 3D product design data for visualization, simulation, CAE, and supply chain data exchange applications. Version 2.0 also provides users with the ability to automate 3D product geometry and structure modification, and then export revised product data into high-precision B-rep and lightweight mesh formats including SolidWorks®, Inventor®, ACIS®, CATIA® V4/V5, Parasolid®, STEP, NX (formerly Unigraphics), IGES, COLLADA, DWF, X3D, and VRML.
The Vizard Virtual Reality Toolkit is everything you need to build interactive 3D content. Designed for rapid prototyping, Vizard gets you creating fast and provides the resources to deploy even the most challenging applications. With Vizard, even someone with no programming experience can leap into the world of interactive 3D content. Vizard is guaranteed to support clusters and CAVEs, all head-mounted displays, LCD shutter glasses, and several other specialty display technologies such as dome projectors and autostereoscopes. Most commercially available motion tracking devices are supported in Vizard. Vizard also supports numerous other devices such as gloves, haptic displays, force-feedback systems, and simple Microsoft DirectInput™ compatible gamepads and joysticks. Publish your Vizard applications as executables with royalty-free redistribution.
Anark Corporation and WorldViz will be attending this year's Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation & Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2008, where they will demonstrate the powerful workflow of integrating transformed 3D CAD models into WorldViz's real-time virtual reality toolkit. The Anark Core Platform will be on display at the Orange County Convention Center, West Building, Halls C-F, Orlando, Florida, booth #210, December 1-4, 2008. To schedule a demonstration prior to the show please contact Anark directly at Email Contact. Interactive real-time simulations created with the Vizard 3D toolkit will be demonstrated at WorldViz booth #4115. To schedule a demonstration please contact WorldViz directly at Email Contact.
