Study on the Parallel Rendering Technology Used in Virtual Prototype System
With continuous expansion of manufacturing scale, the scene data that virtual prototype system has to deal with is far beyond a single computer's processing power. To meet the requirements of large-scale simulation, this study designs a virtual prototype system based on PC cluster. The problems including software architecture of virtual prototype system, transformation of CAD model, scene graph management, real-time rendering of huge dataset, and so on are investigated in detail in this paper. Finally a prototype system has been implemented. The system is constructed by PC cluster and gigabit LAN. The aim of the system is to build a large-scale, high resolution, immersive virtual environment supporting users' virtual design and manufacture.
