Visual Components Experience – Public Release

Visual Components Experience (VCE) introduces a new way for manufacturing professionals to share and experience layouts and 3D simulations created with Visual Components 4.0 products, on mobile or in Virtual Reality. The VCE mobile application lets you share your designs on-the-go. It works on both iOS and Android devices, and is available for free in the App Store and Google Play. Our new VR product is making its public debut with the release of Visual Components 4.0.5, following a successful beta over the summer. The VR application installer can be found in the downloads section of our website.
