Orlando, FL, United States, 2012/08/01 - DiSTI releases the first truly interactive 3D virtual engine maintenance training app featuring the Cummins 855 Diesel Engine and created using GL Studio ES - DiSTI.com.
The DiSTI Corporation, a leading developer of interactive 3D software and customized training solutions, has released the Virtual Engine app for the iPad; the first truly interactive 3D virtual engine maintenance trainer on the Apple App Store. The Virtual Engine app boasts an immersive and highly interactive 3D maintenance training environment giving the user a spatial awareness of job procedures that transcends traditional text or video based materials. To download the free app, visit disti.com and click on the banner to go to the Apple App Store.
Created with DiSTI’s GL Studio ES, the Virtual Engine app immerses the user into a mobile maintenance training lesson while retaining all the fidelity and functionality of a desktop‐based virtual maintenance trainer. The app includes a fully interactive 3D model of the Cummins 855 Diesel Engine, a list of job procedures with the ability to perform each one through simple touch gestures, and a color coding feature to clearly identify physical constraints when moving parts during a lesson. The app also provides a view of the parts table, allowing the user to closely inspect removed parts.
“The next trend in maintenance training is the ability to take the training with you. Simply porting electronic documentation and videos to a tablet completely misses the mark on what this mobile technology is capable of delivering. This Virtual Engine app was made to set a new standard and show how easily GL Studio ES can create customizable training content,” said DiSTI Chief Technology Officer, Darren Humphrey.
Maintenance training applications are just one of the many case areas that GL Studio ES services. With touchscreen displays making their way into just about every facet of the consumer's domain, the interface experience will make or break a new product. The single code base and powerful development features in GL Studio ES yields the ultimate experience in interface development and deployment. GL Studio ES is the unifying bridge between the graphics artist’s vision, the application developer's control and the embedded system's display hardware.
DiSTI’s Virtual Engine iOS app is compatible with the iPad iOS version 5.1 or later.
