Hexagon Adds Virtual Reality to Mine Planning Solution - 03/07/2018


Hexagon‘s Mining division has introduced an improved mine planning solution called HxGN MinePlan 3D (formerly MineSight 3D), which now features full virtual reality, bringing a new dimension to visualising and sharing mine plans.

MinePlan 3D users can visualise their mine plans and geological models in complete virtual reality. They can then share and showcase their designs to all key stakeholders, using the same medium.

This news responds to customer feedback, and includes improvements to the application’s time and efficiency. MinePlan 3D now automatically generates more accurate solids, easier-to-condition surfaces, and quicker-to-design ramps. The solution speeds up design and evaluation time and delivers unique tools to validate geological models.

“We are the only general mine planning application with true virtual reality embedded directly within the application,” said Ian Blumel, Planning Product Manager. “Imagine stepping into a model to validate that the geology is more accurate, that scheduling makes sense, and that the design is sound. MinePlan 3D users can do that. We have listened to customer feedback and delivered improvements that allow users to obtain mine designs faster.”
