Hello @All

 

is there any kind of support from Siemens produkt NX for Microsoft Hololens?

 

For example an export from NX-Simulation for Hololens etc.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Michael,

 

AR/VR and support for devices such as Microsoft HoloLens, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift etc. is certainly an active area for our internal development and technology teams. There are several on-going data visualization projects encompassing the different file formats such as NX (.prt), JT etc. At PLM Connections in Orlando last year, we presented a NX + HoloLens proof-of-concept demo video in one of the sessions. The feedback was quite positive.

It’d be great if you could provide some details about the type of workflow, models, data etc. that you are considering with NX & HoloLens.

Hi Michael,

 

Assuming you don't want to wait for internal developments and proof of concepts, and you only want to visualize your NX environment, there is a tool called moreViz which does exactly that.


There isn't much info available online, but the trial is free so give it a shot.

Also, the hololens has a very small field of view, you would need to be 4 meters away from the projection to fit an average desk chair in there. The hololens is more of a techdemo than an actual AR system. For now, stick with the Rift/Vive for practical purposes

 

Hope this helps,

Hi Himanshu Iyer,

 

I read your post regarding to VR technology. I understand that the efect which is shown on pictures was made by HoloLens, is it?

Could you give me advise how to convert 3D NX file to VR HoloLens technology?

 

Many thanks

Marcin,

 

The image shown in an earlier post was a proof-of-concept of NX + HoloLens (AR technology from Microsoft). It was developed using the Unity game engine 

 

In the near future (2018), a VR solution would be avilable for NX. Please keep an eye on the NX Design Blog for updates on this solution.
