How It Works
CardinalSim is designed to run on standard commercial-grade hardware and software.
The use of a high-end graphics boards is recommended given its use of ray-casting volumetric rendering.
CardinalSim supports a variety of stereoscopic display options that use side-by-side, vertical stack, or anaglyph methods.
CardinalSim supports a number of commercially-available haptic interfaces, such as those developed by Geomagic and ForceDimension.
Haptic rendering uses the Chai3D library.
