3D CAD becomes virtual reality – VR PluraView monitor from Schneider Digital

A revolution in 3D stereo and VR work when it comes to CAx applications

With the VR PluraView monitor, the term “3D CAD” now takes on a whole new meaning for CAx, construction and design: The innovative VR system makes working in virtual reality environments and stereoscopic visualisation in construction and design a thing of the present, not just the future.

The new VR PluraView is a passive virtual reality stereo monitor. As a fully-fl edged desktop VR/AR system, it is based on the successful 3D PluraView monitor from Schneider Digital. The tried and trusted, fl icker-free beam splitter technology allows the user to work in a VR environment without becoming tired, even over long periods. Transparent lenses allow unrestricted communication with customers and colleagues.

Equipped with a high-tech tracking system, the VR PluraView now allows interaction with 3D stereo models and content across all axes - zoom, rotate and tilt - without the mouse. The system supports up to 15 tracking devices at the same time, and is therefore also ideal for fi nger tracking scenarios.


Unrestricted communication with customers and colleagues during the VR meeting.

Flicker-free for
stress-free 3D work

Object tracking with balls or 3D-Pen for realistic model interaction

Maximum resolution of 4K per eye with window seat compatible brightness

Ideal complement to
HMD and VR glasses

Compatible with any VR software – without tracking to many CAD programs

Ideal complement to the use of HMD and VR glasses

Based on its design, VR PluraView represents the ideal complement to VR glasses. The HMD/VR glasses quickly give users a good sense of space in a 3D model, and make orientation easy. A good way of estimating distances and dimensions in the design. Results can then be discussed by several participants in the 28” PluraView, and changes implemented immediately in every detail.

The transparent and very lightweight polarized glasses help maintain eye contact, and allow users to have a sip of water in between without having to take the glasses off. Who wants to spend the working day sweating and hidden from the outside world behind a heavy pair of VR-glasses?


VR PluraView functions and benefits

  • Head and object tracking for intuitive VR work

  • Interaction using glasses, tracking balls, or tracking pen

  • CAD mice and stationary input devices are unnecessary thanks to head tracking and gesture recognition

  • Comfortable 3D glasses with a wide viewing angle and low weight

  • Transparent lenses allow unrestricted communication with customers and colleagues

  • Thanks to high brightness levels, VR work can be performed in daylight conditions

  • Virtual Reality in exceptional display quality through 4K resolution per eye

  • Flicker-free, passive stereo system with beam splitter technology

  • Compatible with any VR software – without tracking to many CAD programs

  • Ideal complement to HMD and VR glasses

Designed for CAD professionals

Unique virtual reality experience for daily long-term use

The VR PluraView integrated infrared tracking system “virtually” immerses the user in the 3D environment. Large retrorefl ective 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 HMD or VR glasses. Using VR PluraView, the user moves the model intuitively with the 3D glasses bearing a marker. Separate tracking devices, which can be programmed in seconds and complement our interactive tracking pen or passive tracking balls, allow especially realistic handling.

A great advantage of the beam splitter technology: In contrast to active 3D systems with “fl ickering” glasses, the VR PluraView guarantees a totally fl icker-free stereo image. This allows not only short visualisations or presentations, but also permanent work within a VR environment. In addition, the superlative display quality with up to 10 bit colour depth, 4K resolution per eye, and exceptional display brightness, provides for comfortable VR work even in daylight conditions.

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

CAD software applications compatible with VR PluraView:

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