Purpose: Current demands to reduce time and cost in taking a product from concept to production has forced companies to turn to new and emerging technologies in design and manufacturing. VEDAM is aimed at extending the capabilities of existing parametric CAD/CAM systems.

Result: Upon completion of the initial implementation, tests were run on the VEDAM system to check for the accuracy of setup times and machining times. These results showed that VEDAM systems provided a good estimate, equal or better than that of a manufacturing "expert", in estimating setup times and machining times. These times will also improve as the system is further developed.

Equipment:

  • Virtual Research VR4 HMD 
  • Virtual Technologies Cyberglove 
  • Ascension Flock of Birds tracking system
