ESI Group: ESI introduces IC.IDO 10

ESI introduces IC.IDO 10

Virtual Reality
moves to the next level
with
workflow efficiency and high fidelity rendering
for industrial applications

Paris, France -
April 3, 2014 -
ESI Group, pioneer and world-leading solution provider in
Virtual Prototypingfor manufacturing industries, announces the new version of
its immersive
Virtual Reality solution,
IC.IDO10
, featuring the new module
IDO.Illuminate

to deliver ultra-realistic lighting conditions. Today, Virtual Reality is
used by industrial manufacturers from various sectors for collaborative
exploration and resolution of design challenges throughout product
engineering, manufacturing and aftersales. The new
IC.IDO10
elevates the fidelity of decision-making
through its unprecedented immersive experience in terms of realistic
visualization and product behavior.

Industrial manufacturers seek innovative ways to increase their productivity
and reduce potential design issues for large, complex or expensive products.
They have adoptedIC.IDOto perform collaborative and immersive design reviews,
to evaluate and optimize assembly&disassembly sequences, to verify resources
and tooling for manufacture and maintenance, and to support documentation and
training.

Recently, automotive manufacturer Renault implemented ESI's Virtual Reality
solution to speed up the quality and efficiency of their design
processes.Renaud Deligny
, Specialist for 3D Engineering for Product and Process Design at Renault,
sums up his goals: "We're excited about this latest release and expect a lot
from IC.IDO 10 in
terms of physics simulation for flexibles and kinematic chains, manikin
manipulation, data flow and workflow organization. Our objective, with the
help of IC.IDO, is to increase the quality and efficiency of our assembly
validations, and to decrease our development times."

Unlike other Virtual Reality solutions,IC.IDOincorporates real-time physics
simulation, reproducing realistically the behavior of virtual objects, such
as cables, hoses and kinematic chains. This unique capability represents a
definite technical advantage to perform reliable design review, and eliminate
design errors from the very early stages of the design process.

IC.IDOusers also benefit from an immersive user interface that lets users
intuitively engage with their virtual product. The new version brings
significant enhancements to this user interface, offering improved usability,
agility and optimized workflows. Users can now build and manage libraries of
reusable elements that can be easily shared between teams.

IC.IDO10's new module,IDO.Illuminate
, delivers a breakthrough in immersive Virtual Reality. For the first time
users are able to experience their scenarios under realistic lighting
conditions, without sacrificing interactivity or reducing available features.
Complex 3D environments can be created, edited and activated to directly
appreciate the visual appearance, showing operating conditions more
realistically, to better assess the manufacturability or serviceability of a
product - for example, to assess if lightning conditions are sufficient in
order to ensure safe and efficient operations. Rendering performance is
optimized during runtime so users can benefit from the best possible balance
between visual quality and real-time interactivity. Not only does this module
bring increased productivity, it also delivers a compelling experience for
customer presentations by showing the impact of lightning conditions on
usability or perceived quality.

Also part of this release,IDO.Process
is a new module that allows for the efficient, interactive and collaborative
planning and validation of an assembly process.IDO.Process
introduces a new paradigm withinIC.IDOto flexibly orchestrate and manipulate
processes defined by distinct product and resource configurations. In
combination with IC.IDO's immersive experience,IDO.Process
addresses the demand of industrial engineers and service managers for an agile
and robust planning and validation environment of their respective processes.
