Challenges of CAD conversion to 3D visualisation environments with respect to kinematic dependencies

Contribution to Conference
Due to the increasing utilization of 3D development environments for industrial use cases by emerging topics like virtual reality, new challenges in the conversion of computer-aided-design (CAD) models to 3D models have become visible. Particularly, the conversion of the kinematic constraints turns out to be complex and requires extensive manual efforts. This paper discusses these challenges with a focus on the problems in the conversion of kinematic constraints. Further, a new approach is proposed and validated regarding the automated conversion of the kinematic constraints of an exemplary CAD model. Thereby, this work contributes to an accelerated and simplified development process of industrial applications within 3D development environments.
