iQ3Connect is reducing barriers to immersive collaboration and training for a global audience with its release of version 2023.3. Automatic language localization, simplified VR model creation, and our new lightweight XR workspaces will allow users from anywhere in the world to seamlessly collaborate, train, and learn on any AR, VR, PC, or mobile device. Additional details on the major enhancements in 2023.3 can be found below:
Automatic Language Localization – Reduce language barriers to facilitate collaboration and/or training with a global audience as iQ3Connect can now automatically detect a user’s language preference and will translate the iQ3Connect interface.
Virtual Object Tracking for Interactive Training and Retrofit Operations – Leverage this new capability to easily create virtual build and assembly training, automatically detecting when a trainee has properly assembled a component or provide real-time feedback of clearances.
Simplified VR Model Creation – To further expand on capabilities added in 2023.2, users can rapidly create derived VR models without going back to the source CAD by combining or segmenting models visually and/or by leveraging the model tree. This can be done in desktop mode or directly in VR.
Instant, Lightweight XR Workspaces – Instantly view and interact with 3D models on any VR, AR, PC, or mobile device in our new lightweight XR workspace. These lightweight workspaces are designed to support rapid single user activities in iQ3Connect for quickly building immersive training modules and XR experiences and/or viewing and interacting with 3D models.
How XR will Transform Workforce Training for Industry 4.0
In this two part blog series, we will be detailing key takeaways from AWE 2023. iQ3Connect attended AWE 2023 in Santa Clara, California where we were invited by Jin An of LG NOVA to participate in a main stage presentation on how XR and AI will transform workforce training for Industry 4.0. With the U.S. Manufacturing Industry undergoing the 4th industrial revolution, facing millions of unfilled jobs and a nearly 40% turnover rate, efficient workforce training is becoming critical to ensuring organizations maintain competitiveness and prevent worker injuries. iQ3Connect is transforming the way manufacturing companies approach these challenges, by providing a web-browser based training platform that enables anyone to create and deploy virtual training modules on a global scale.
Seamlessly collaborate and train with colleagues, partners, suppliers, etc. from anywhere in the world. iQ3Connect 2023.3 introduces new functionality that automatically detects a user’s language preference in the browser and translates the iQ3Connect interface into that language. By enabling users to use iQ3Connect in their native language, you can eliminate time spent on translation and interface interpretation, paving the way to more effective immersive training and collaboration and leading to enhanced productivity on a global scale.
