Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Virtual Reality Client allows you to explore Simcenter STAR-CCM+ simulation solutions in a virtual reality environment. You can stand inside a solution and examine how flow, energy, and other quantities interact with the digital prototype.


Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Virtual Reality

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Virtual Reality is designed to work with Oculus Rift and HP Reverb. Oculus Rift and HP Reverb are virtual reality headsets that use room scale tracking technology to capture your movements in 3D space. Along with the base stations and headset, Oculus Rift and HP Reverb provide two wireless controllers that act as hands in the virtual reality environment. These controllers provide multiple input methods including a trigger, buttons, and a track pad.
When activated, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Virtual Reality applies a floor below the model and a ceiling above. The floor that appears in the display corresponds to the real floor under your feet—you calibrate the location of your floor when you set up Oculus Rift and HP Reverb. The ceiling is set at a fixed distance above your head.
