When it comes to designing new products, it often takes a dispersed team spread around the globe to put together every piece in the puzzle. In this process, success depends on close collaboration among design and engineering teams, third-party contractors and suppliers — wherever they are. And this sort of collaboration can be a tough challenge — until now.
Today, with NVIDIA Omniverse™ Enterprise software, collaboration among geographically distributed design and engineering teams has never been easier. From early-stage ideation concepts to smart factory automation and robotics, Omniverse Enterprise seamlessly connects everyone and everything throughout the process.
A shared virtual workspace
NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise is an easily extensible software platform built for virtual collaboration and real-time physically accurate simulation. With this groundbreaking software, creators, designers and engineers can connect major design tools, assets and projects to collaborate and iterate in a shared virtual space. Developers and software providers, in turn, can also easily build tools to expand its functionality.
This powerful, real-time simulation and collaboration software for 3D production pipelines is based on Pixar’s Universal Scene Description and NVIDIA RTX™ for ray tracing, with AI technologies that provides efficient real-time scene updates.
The software platform is designed to enable interoperability across different applications and 3D ecosystem vendors. It’s meant to act as a hub that enables new capabilities to be exposed as micro-services to connected clients and applications.
The Omniverse of Dell Technologies
At Dell Technologies, we’re excited about Omniverse Enterprise and its ability to enable collaboration for designers, engineers and other innovators leveraging Dell Precision workstations, Dell EMC VxRail or Dell EMC PowerEdge servers. With Dell Technologies, Omniverse has the potential to transform every stage of the 3D production workflow.
A few examples:
- Conceptual design reviews — Omniverse enables manufacturers to share and evaluate interactive, physically accurate, globally illuminated and ray-traced visualizations of product concepts with internal stakeholders, customers, suppliers and third-party consultants in any location.
- AI training and simulation for production robotics — Omniverse allows teams to tap into NVIDIA’s comprehensive AI training and inferencing toolset for robotic systems, from warehouse logistics and assembly to welding cells and pick-and-place equipment.
- Supplier communication — Omniverse enables teams to quickly review engineering changes with suppliers and manufacturers around the world. All the key players can view interactive models in real time to facilitate quick, high quality decisions.
- Interactive massive factory layout datasets — Omniverse can display full plant and factory layouts supporting interactive fly-throughs and evaluations of full facilities for a true “virtual factory” experience.
