BRUSSELS, Belgium, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ — VRcontext has announced the release of a converter for SolidWorks(TM) Version 2007 and 2008 that makes the Walkinside(R) visualization tool available to the SolidWorks community. This solution offers CAD users the opportunity to walk through massive SolidWorks models in real time and affords non-CAD users a way to conveniently share and review design data.

"Walkinside's walk-through capabilities and high-speed navigation in massive models allows us to make extremely effective presentations to our customers," said Morten Hugo Bennick, Project Manager of the FLSmidth Proposal Department in Denmark. "After converting our large cement plant SolidWorks models to Walkinside, we can walk around in the virtual plant model, let our customers experience the size of the plant and equipment, and discuss the plant layout during project review sessions. We are considering expanding our utilization to take advantage of Walkinside's unique capability to link the 3D virtual reality model to external operational databases."

The new Walkinside Version 5 is a major rewrite of the product that delivers faster, more intuitive navigation of large assets using .NET technology, which enables remote collaboration through the Internet with online virtualization tools that are accessible even from low-end workstations. Users can contextually link external applications and databases, while they employ human-like avatars to simulate real-world constraints, such as gravity, collision, and relative dimension.
