ModuleWorks announces Visual Twin, its next generation of machining visualization technology. Visual Twin combines the ModuleWorks simulation components with computer graphics to achieve a new level of realism.
With lighting, shadows, textures, flying chips and audio, Visual Twin delivers an immersive experience that takes real-time simulation beyond technical functionality and turns it into a business tool. With Visual Twin, sales teams can deliver demonstrations of a customer’s specific machining process. As part of a company’s marketing strategy, Visual Twin is a cost-effective alternative to shipping large, heavy machines to trade fairs and exhibitions. It is also a training tool, enabling operators to learn and practice in a realistic environment without downtime, waste material or the risk of collisions.
Built upon the ModuleWorks simulation technology, the high-performance Visual Twin runs on consumer-grade hardware and connects to CNC controls for fully integrated and realistic real-time simulation on the shop floor.
