Virtual reality aided design of parts and assemblies
Current virtual reality (VR) systems provide an enormous potential for enhancing the visualization of 3D-design drafts. Based on new navigation techniques the designer is able to interact, model in a more intuitive and efficient way. In our contribution we present a novel interaction metaphor that facilitates the synthesis of efficient virtual reality interaction and visualization techniques with modern feature based CAD systems. We present "NAVIMODE", an alternative approach for navigation, manipulation and selection, to combine the advantages of VR and CAD systems. The design engineer has the chance to design in his/her habitual environment using the advantage of virtual reality concurrently.
