Many organisations are still using old school training methods to train engineers on how to build, maintain, repair or replace equipment. They often rely on using actual equipment which is an expensive bottleneck and/or use a combination of low resolution photos on slides and 2D schematics from manuals.
Independent studies have shown that using 3D interactive training shortens training time and increases first time right performance. Please use the feedback form to request these studies if interested.
We usually build interactive 3D equipment training systems using NGRAIN’s patented voxel technology which also enables us to export procedures to augmented reality for use on tablets and smartglasses.
We either import existing CAD models or our expert team of 3D artists can model any equipment and convert it to the interactive NGRAIN format.
This enables engineers to explore the equipment by taking it apart and visually identifying components, seeing how to do procedures that are created from existing manuals and expert customer input, then getting to practice those procedures and if necessary be assessed on them with scores reported to a learning management system.
Solutions are deployed on existing PCs or tablets and increasingly as augmented reality (AR).
Current AR projects include using the NGRAIN SDK to integrate live sensor data and display on smartglasses in a factory and 3D aircraft maintenance support that is being delivered on both tablets and smart glasses.
SGIL also utilises virtual reality (VR) to deliver high end equipment visualisation for showrooms, events and multiuser equipment training remotely as well as design engineering planning where multiple people walk into a design project and discuss without having to be in the same office to save time and cost on travel and potential rework after manufacturing.
