Safran Nacelles uses IC.IDO to Validate Nacelles Manufacturing Tooling

The Challenge

When developing new aircraft programs, Safran Nacelles needed a validation method that would allow them to visualize and validate process design, without relying on physical prototypes. They also needed a way to validate the installation of new assembly and manufacturing lines, study ergonomics, and train operators.


After implementing IC.IDO, ESI’s virtual reality tool, Safran Nacelles improved their overall efficiency, reducing the number of product and process development cycles required. Additionally, they now conduct collaborative sessions on-site in their 3D cave, and include the participation of external partners. The company has now fully integrated IC.IDO and virtual reality into their development and validation processes.

"Virtual reality represents a technology of the future that will have an impact on the efficiency of our developments. The factory of the future is already here."

Nicolas Lepape, Virtual & Augmented Reality R&T Project Manager Safran Nacelles


Hi there,
I've been looking at the videos and text of the IC.IDO VR tool and wanted to know more information on it, and if its available. We are looking for VR in our engineering school as the demos would improve learning for our students. We currently have a HTC vive VR kit and working on bringing VR into our learning scheme.

Thanks for your time
