Abstract:

Traditional computer-aided designengineering CADCAE is performed in a two-dimensional 2D environment. Through the CAD system demonstration described in this paper, an alternative to the existing 2D technology for design of products is described. This alternative in which design synthesis is accomplished in a stereoscopic or immersive environment is called the Design Synthesis Virtual Environment or DSVE. Stereoscopic vision permits depth perception and provides perception of real world 3D existence. This DSVE technology, as defined in this paper, provides a virtual or immersive environment, computer-generated, but seemingly real.
