Background: Ansys UX Team recognized my skills from my summer internship performance and provided sponsorship to one-year-long capstone project. This project is one of those innovation projects that the UX team had kept in their wishlist for a long time and did not get a chance to work on because of their day-to-day product related responsibilities. I led this initiative end-to-end and explored the opportunities to integrate AR/VR with Ansys Discovery software.
Sponsor: Ansys Inc.
Duration: 9 months (Sep 2020 - April 2021)
My Role: User Research, Technology Research, Product Design, Prototyping & Testing
Stakeholders: Frank Desimone (Design Director), Jared Pryor (UX Manager and Developer) and Ansys UX Team
How might we leverage AR/VR/MR technology to enhance the simulation experience of 3D models for Ansys Discovery users?
