School of Engineering Division of Integrative Systems and Design 154 HKUST in VR Supervisor: YEUNG Sai Kit / ISD Student: LAI Kam Wai / ISDN TSE Yui Kai / ISDN Course: UROP2100, Fall UROP2100, Fall This project requires the use of Unity and VR equipment to create a virtual environment for laser cutter training. Tutorials on Unity VR are taken to familiarize with the application of the software. Training for manufacturing tools used to be tedious and time-consuming, since one-to-one training is usually required for students to be familiar with the operation, which takes technicians so much time and effort to repeatedly teach individual students. Hence, training using virtual reality might be a way to increase the efficiency of training since students can be trained without technicians and it does not require multiple physical devices for training. After building the 3D models for a variety of the equipment in the summer before, this semester, we designed our user survey and conducted various user tests to test out the effect of the prototype.
