There is a great deal of interest in how the Leap Motion™ Controller is going to change the way we interact with 3D modeling and visualization tools. This class focuses on the steps that are needed to define a simple, gesture-based user interface to AutoCAD software using the Leap Motion SDK. We look at a way to enable AutoCAD users to navigate 3D models using gestures, as well as different techniques for allowing geometry creation and manipulation. We take a look at the relative pros and cons of gesture-based interaction with 3D systems in an attempt to assess whether this mode of interaction is likely to prove popular in our industry.
- Describe how Leap Motion can be used to control software applications
