Why you need a digital twin in your business

Unlock the power of virtual replicas.

Have you ever heard of a "digital twin"? You might think it's just a virtual representation of you in the digital world, but the concept is so much more! A digital twin is a virtual 3D replica of a physical object or system that accurately simulates its characteristics, behavior, and functions in a digital environment.

Having a digital twin allows companies to test and refine their products, optimize operations, and ultimately improve outcomes. This leads to better decision-making and better results in the real world.

The digital twin in a metaverse

In a metaverse, a digital twin bridges the physical and virtual worlds. It represents physical entities and allows them to interact with each other and virtual entities within a virtual environment.

Here are a few examples of digital twins in the metaverse:

  1. A physical building - it can be represented in the virtual environment for users to interact with.
  2. A physical product - a digital twin of the product can be used to simulate its characteristics and behavior in the metaverse, allowing users to experience it virtually.

Using digital twins in a metaverse is a big step towards unlocking its full potential as a shared and immersive environment.

How to create a digital twin of a physical product

There are two main scenarios when it comes to creating a digital twin:

1. You have a CAD file.

Many modern product development processes result in a digital version of the product, usually in the form of a CAD file. However, these files are often technical and unsuitable for product presentations or collaboration in a 3D space. With Vectary, you can import the CAD file and turn it into a high-quality, interactive model with animations and simulations in real time, optimized for sharing. This makes it easy to share and collaborate within your team.

2. You don't have a CAD file.

In this case, you'll need to create a 3D model (not necessarily a CAD). You can design your model from scratch or use 3D scanning. Vectary offers tools for both scenarios. You can create a mesh 3D model from scratch or import a 3D scan and optimize it for sharing.

Digital twin use cases

Designing your digital twin is just the beginning! There are so many possibilities for collaboration, innovation, and exploration with digital twins.

  1. Sales and marketing - digital twins can be used in pitch decks, product presentations, trade shows, and digital campaigns. They make it easy to showcase your products in a real 3D version online and in AR.
  2. Customer service - digital twins can be used as interactive instructions for products. Instead of printing user manuals, a QR code leading to a link can be placed on the product's packaging.
  3. Product development and research - digital twins can help with better decision-making by bringing together feedback from all departments in one place. This leads to faster and better product innovation.
  4. Manufacturing and procurement - digital twins help understand the product before it goes into manufacturing. Changing one element, like the material, can have a big impact on the price of the product. With a digital twin, you can instantly visualize changes, leading to faster and better decisions.
  5. Testing - digital twins can be used in simulations and predictions, resulting in better-quality products.

It is clear that digital twins are a highly effective resource that can yield many rewards for businesses. It is an essential asset for any cutting-edge company because of its vast potential applications and advantages.
