Data Transfer from Heterogeneous CAD to Division Mockup Virtual Prototype


Article Preview

Virtual prototype technology could integrate different CAD formats parts into an digital model. In this way the design process will be more efficient. This issue reviewed three methods to transfer data from CAD parts to virtual reality element. And find an efficient way to transfer different CAD model data to virtual prototype software Division MockUp.
