2011 VR Summer Workshop

This year World16 is engaged in virtual reality (VR) and computer graphics research with impacts in a variety of academic and professional fields. During this year's VR Summer Workshop, the group met at the University of Pisa, Italy to present current research endeavors and share new technologies.

The presentations at the workshop represent the middle stage of current research projects. Final results will be presented at the 5th International VR Symposium this November in Tokyo, Japan.

  1. That may be helpful for figuring out a specific line in case of an error in a huge program. The G17 is default for most CNC machines, however the different two may be also used for achieving Direct CNC particular actions. With these G-code instructions we select the working plane of the machine. We need to notice that the models must be set initially of this system. If we don’t specify the models the machine will consider the default set by the earlier program.
