Virtual reality to help designing and manufacturing of large components for nuclear power plants

Quite neat: virtual reality for UK research centre to help in the design and manufacture of large components for nuclear power plants: "this visualization will make nuclear technology more accessible than ever before. "This is because what makes the nuclear sector different is the sheer scale of components and their machining tools. We're talking about massive components weighing 40 or 50 tonnes. Any small alterations that need to be made to components that size should be made where they are manufactured, rather than at the assembly stage." He added, "We'll achieve this by scanning the components and dropping them into their virtual environment to check they fit with the other components in the assembly.""
