IMCRC and CADwalk Global
As part of our relationship with IMCRC and the University of South Australia, CADwalk Global has been challenged to create realistic and affordable design interfaces for industry clients and consumers. CADwalk will benefit from $5,991,500 in manufacturing investment for 2017 - 2022.
To develop a set of novel Spatial Augmented Reality user interface tools to provide clients with the means to deliver design solutions for high-end instrumented facilities.
Clients will be able to walk around, physically touch and modify the design concept in real time. Concepts can be used in a showroom setting for retail outlets to help consumers design interiors.
The solution will also demonstrate alternative manufacturing opportunities to existing local businesses, and encourage the development of new strategies to offer specialised services to industry, providing opportunities for graduates to have a future in manufacturing in Australia.
