Trial Development of a Virtual Mine
To deepen the student’s comprehension and visual impression of mining knowledge while avoiding the risk and cost of visiting real mines, a virtual mine teaching platform was developed with 3DS as modelling tool and virtools as programming tool. Having this teaching platform, students can visually obverse the 3D layout of mines and mining procedures, roam about the mine, and even manipulate the mining device interactively, get judgment of his actions. This teaching platform greatly enhance the efficiency, safety and quality of mining speciality education, it also has good prospect to mine staff training and mining experiment.
