Virtual reality (VR), even if it does not represent any more a novel technology, is one of the most powerful tool to help designers during the development of new pro- jects. This is proved by very numerous research activities related to this ﬁeld. In this research, we have studied a new way to approach the development of a product. We present the ongoing development of a system, called VirDe, acronym of virtual design, which can allow the designers to perform the whole design process, from the modelling phase to the ﬁnite element method (FEM) simulation analysis, in a vir- tual reality environment. This newmethod allows remarkable time andmoney saving in the overall product design process, but the most important contribution of VirDe is that, as far as we concerned, there is no known similar approach which has been studying the simultaneous combination of CAD, FEM and virtual environment (VE).
