  • Flicker-free display for easy and comfortable 3D viewing

  • Realistic, intuitive model interaction

  • Maximum brightness – suitable for daylight

  • Ideal complement to HMD systems and immersive VR

3D CAD becomes Virtual Reality – VR PluraView monitors from Schneider Digital

A revolution in 3D-stereo and VR work environments for CAx applications


With the VR PluraView monitors, the term “3D CAD” takes on a whole new meaning for CAx, i.e. engineering, manufacturing, construction and design! Our innovative VR system realizes comfortable, intuitive working in Virtual Reality environments and stereoscopic visualization today, not just sometime in the future.

The new VR PluraView is a passive-display Virtual Reality stereo monitor. As a fully-fledged desktop VR/AR system, it is based on the successful 3D PluraView monitors from Schneider Digital. The tried and tested, flicker-free beam-splitter technology allows the user to work in an intuitive VR environment without becoming tired, even over long periods. Transparent, feather-light polarized glasses allow unrestricted communication with customers and colleagues.

Equipped with a high-tech tracking system, the VR PluraView now allows smooth interaction with 3D stereo content across all 3D axes in X, Y, Z, plus zooming, rotating and tilting - without a mouse! The VR PluraView connects to more than 15 tracking devices and is ideal for head -, hand- or finger-tracking interfaces.

and most CAD environments

The ideal complement to HMD and immersive VR systems


As a true desktop system, the VR PluraView represents the ideal complement to a Head-Mounted Display (HMD). With our light-weight VR glasses, professional users quickly get a excellent sense of orientation and dimensions in their 3D models. Without any special preparations or additional HMD devices, results can be easily discussed by several participants on the 28” PluraView system and modifications can implemented immediately in every detail.

The transparent and light-weight, polarized glasses help maintain eye contact and allow users to have a sip of water in between without having to take the glasses off.

  • Ideal complement to HMD and immersive VR systems

Designed for CAD/CAM/CAE (CAx) professionals

Amazing VR experience for daily long-term operations


The VR PluraView’s integrated infrared tracking system immerses the user “virtually” inside the 3D environment. Large retroreflective markers on the passive 3D glasses allow for reliable detection by IR cameras and enable smooth movement in a virtual space when looking at models from different perspectives. 3D models become “reality” as with head-mounted devices. Using the VR PluraView, the user views the model intuitively from different angles through the 3D glasses, bearing IR-markers. A multitude of separate tracking devices can be connected in seconds and complement our interactive tracking pen or passive tracking balls, which allow for especially realistic 3D model handling.

The great advantage of the beam-splitter technology: In contrast to active 3D systems with “flickering”, shuttered glasses, the VR PluraView guarantees a totally flicker-free stereo experience! This allows not only short 3D visualizations or presentations but facilitates fatigue-free permanent work within VR environments. In addition, the superlative display quality with 10-bit color depth, 4K resolution per eye, and exceptional display brightness provides for comfortable VR work even in office daylight conditions.

The new Schneider Digital VR PluraView offers top-quality innovative beam-splitter and tracking technology for VR visualization on the desktop. The VR PluraView is ideal for all stereo software applications in a wide variety of industries:


  • Simulation & VR Training

  • CGI / 3D video processing

  • Mechanical design / CAD

  • Architectural design

  • 3D Urban planning, GIS

  • Molecular research / Crystallography

  • Medical applications, e.g. computer tomography, surgery planning

  • Biochemistry / stereo microscopy

  • BIM (Building Information Modeling)

  • Mesh-model interaction

 
 

CAD software applications compatible with VR PluraView


The VR PluraView system can be operated with many CAD plug-and-play systems. Software solutions such as Siemens NX, Catia, HiCAD or Kompas-3D natively support 3D stereo and can be used fully with the VR PluraView. On other CAD systems, the file viewers support 3D stereo, for example PTC Creo data with CreoView, or for SolidWorks through eDrawings. AutoCAD and Inventor data can be viewed stereoscopically through NavisWorks for example.
