Virtually prototyping and verifying products before their manufacture reduces the time to create cost-effective products. This paper describes an environment in which a developer uses two-handed gesture techniques, tracked contact gloves, and the horizontal display of the CTC Virtual Workbench™ to intuitively interact with and verify complex product assemblies. Details are provided for implementation of a virtual assembly application, lessons learned from using it with two assembly scenarios, and suggestions for future enhancements.
