Making virtual reality a reality: Bringing CAD and game engine together

Shiratuddin, M.F. and Zulkifli, A.N. (2001) Making virtual reality a reality: Bringing CAD and game engine together. In: International Conference on Information Technology and Multimedia at UNITEN (ICIMU 2001), 13 - 15 August, Selangor, Malaysia



This paper describes the framework of developing a usable real-world Walkthrough-VR application with the utilisation of 3D Game Engine and CAD models. This application is concerned with the establishing of a prototype virtual modelling system utilising CAD and VR technologies. The integration between the two technologies enables the creation and sharing of a common database between them. By utilising VR technology, realistic virtual environment could be created from the CAD model for visualisation and evaluation purposes. The developed prototype can then be used by even low-end of present computer consumer market whereby its operator is normally the home/office and desktop PC user.
