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.
Challenges with and Opportunities for Industrial XR
Last week iQ3Connect attended AWE 2023 in Santa Clara, CA and were invited to speak on LG NOVA’s Presentation on how XR and AI will transform workforce training. In our latest blog post, we discuss the key takeaways from this joint presentation and summarize our discussion with enterprise XR leaders on the challenges they face deploying XR experiences to their workforce.
Increase the certainty of outcomes through visualization
iQ3Connect had the privilege of speaking at the SustainaVerse workshop at the Lloyds Lab in London on May 16. The theme of the event was using digital technologies to visualize operations and identify uncertainties in order to make better commercial and ESG decisions. Use the button below to check out an immersive visualization of the Thorco Cloud shipwreck, one of the case studies for the event.
The iQ3 platform is device agnostic, meaning that our adaptive screen technology enables XR experiences to be deployed on any combination of VR, AR, PC, and mobile devices. There is no need to create and manage separate trainings for different devices or portions of the intended audience. The same goes for XR multiuser meeting spaces. Enterprises can access their XR content starting day one of their XR journey with iQ3Connect. Reducing the upfront cost of utilizing XR in their everyday work process and minimizing risk while planning out their XR hardware deployment strategy.

With the release of 2023.2, iQ3Connect has introduced a new level of precision and control to object manipulation and interaction within a web-based virtual environment. These enhancements drastically reduce the time needed to create 3D scenes and make feasible additional use cases such as on-the-fly virtual builds and layouts. Some of the major enhancements are listed below.
Precision Movement and Alignment – Gives users precise control over object movement, rotation, and alignment within the virtual space and with respect to other objects. Easily snap objects together with the proper alignment or a defined offset.
Model Configuration – Save time and effort by combining, reducing and/or segmenting models and objects directly within the iQ3Connect Workspace. This latest enhancement reduces the back and forth between the XR environment and CAD or model editing tools (such as Blender) when needing to reorganize and reconfigure the 3D models from single or multiple data formats.
Point Cloud Measurement – Measurements of point clouds have been optimized to capture fast accurate measurements regardless of the point cloud density and size.
Precision Movement & Alignment
Creating immersive scenes and conducting virtual builds, assembly, and layouts has never been easier. iQ3Connect 2023.2 introduces new functionality that gives users precise control over object movement, rotation, and alignment within the virtual space and with respect to other objects. Our customers have been using this functionality to virtually build cable rack configurations on-the-fly and for creating virtual assembly training. See this latest feature in action in this 2 minute video.
iQ3Connect recently partnered with a large facilities management company to solve a time consuming and costly challenge in facility integration: cable routing and cable rack configuration. Constant changes during the design and installation of a project meant that finalizing the cable routing and rack configuration required extensive collaboration and field inspections to successfully deliver on time. Our web-based VR/AR collaboration platform enabled our partner to visualize the 3D scan data, simultaneously configure cable racks (CAD models) in real-time, and collaborate with their team and other project stakeholders in an immersive, virtual workspace using only a web browser. In our latest product release, we have built on our capability to seamlessly combine LiDAR scans and CAD data by adding a new feature, Precision Movement and Alignment, that enables teams to more quickly build and modify cable rack configurations on the fly and make adjustments to them as the as-built data changes.
