Abstract

We describe a specific problem within the foundry production area and its need for a cooperative visualization and geometry verification tool. We discuss the opportunity of building a specific application and its features: communication architecture and user interface. The conclusion is that it is possible to develop very specific and powerful products for computer supported cooperative visualization and verification using Java 3D. We show the techniques we are using to keep our prototype useful even in very narrow bandwidth conditions. As a consequence of the experience gathered we have developed a new public Java package. This package makes easier the development of cooperative applications based on the Internet and can be adapted to different and specific visualization or simulation problems.
