Design and functions
COMOS Walkinside’s simulation technology allows users to immediately and intuitively explore the virtual 3D model. Real-time dynamic tessellation allows graphical objects to be managed for continuous model rendering in real-time, even on low-capacity computers. Collision detection and gravity enable users to walk around and see the 3D environment through the eyes of a virtual operator with realistic representation of accessibility constraints.
Users can easily focus and jump to equipment, lines, etc. in the 3D model, by using the “plant structure”. It is possible to visualize the engineering attributes of the CAD model for each 3D object with the option to perform queries in the engineering database. COMOS Walkinside provides a convenient menu-driven functionality to attach and position multiple sub-models into one assembly model to support multi-CAD projects.A lot of additional features, such as hide and show objects, support of viewpoints and redlining, or additional interfaces allow for customized setup of the scenarios in the 3D environment.
The COMOS Walkinside PreViewer is an additional, freely available 3D viewer that enables users to share their Walkinside 3D models with others who can use the PreViewer to visualize the model without having to purchase a license. It uses the same rendering technology and navigation experience as the COMOS Walkinside Viewer but with limited functions.
