Virtual reality (VR) is a rapidly developing computer interface that strives to immerse the user completely within an experimental simulation, thereby greatly enhancing the overall impact and providing a much more intuitive link between the computer and the human participants. Virtual reality has been applied successfully to hundreds if not thousands of scenarios in diverse areas including rapid prototyping, manufacturing, scientific visualisation, engineering, and education. This paper gives an overview on the virtual reality applications in manufacturing processes.

        The manufacturing process of gears is fairly complicated due to the presence of various simultaneous motions of the cutter and the job. In this paper, an attempt is made to generate meaningful design data for spur and helical gears and the corresponding rack form cutter necessary for the manufacturing. Using this information, solid models for the cutter and blank are developed and finally... [Show full abstract]

          The chapter outlines the development of a new design system that allows the composition of a design from manufacturable features. The aim of the project is to develop a software system that enables designers to appreciate manufacturing process capabilities and limitations during the design phase. The system is linked to a commercial computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM)... [Show full abstract]
