Design and visualisation is the key to creating innovative products and processes. We are able to offer a complete service by taking your ideas from draft drawings, even from initial conversations, though an iterative design process to produce manufacturer’s drawings, printable files and visualisation in 2D and 3D, suitable for simulations, promotions, or the web.
A virtual reality visualisation of a new product or process can be a powerful marketing tool and with the computing power available at the 3M BIC, it is possible to produce static or animated visualisations that are ‘photo-realistic’. This technology is suited to display on screen or by using tablet or headset technologies as “augmented reality”, where users can directly interact with the visualisation.
Visualisations by the 3M BIC team have been used in the automotive, engineering, architectural, archaeological and healthcare industries, but the applications are almost unlimited. Combined with advanced simulation software and expertise available at the University of Huddersfield, visualisations can be used to rigorously challenge a device in a number of simulated environments before manufacture is considered.
