Elon Musk (SpaceX) discussing the Future of Design

by Siemens Legend Siemens Legend on ‎09-06-2013 12:58 PM - edited (39,210 Views)

Elon Musk just posted a video that looks like it could be from the latest "Iron Man" movie.


SpaceX’s engineers have combined NX with a Leap Motion controller to allow engineers to zoom around and review 3D models without touching a mouse and keyboard.  


This was achieved using existing NX Open API's.  no custom code!




Ok Elon, when will I get my flying car?  Smiley Happy

Where can we get a driver for this or application to run Leap with NX?

At this time, we don't have any plans to distribute this code.   The initial work was done as a proof of concept.

I have jusI just bought a leap motion controller and I will find fun to use  it with "shape Realize NX9"

Did you decided to distribute your code ?

Sorry, at this time there are still no plans to distribute the code.  Smiley Happy


However, I would be interested on everyones feedback on how you could use this type of device.


Is this a replacement for an existing spacemouse/spaceball device, or would you use this in addtion to these devices? 


Your feedback is appreciated.

I'm very interested in trying this out. Can you offer and tips for integrating the Leap Motion with NX9?
