This article highlights the need for accurate modeling in some virtual world applications, especially in engineering, manufacturing, and certain military applications. For example, virtual worlds can enable teams of engineers, managers, and customers to collaboratively view a copper smelter during design and deployment. This article specifically looks at how a virtual world can help in the design and maintenance of a copper smelter model and its refractory lining for copper production.
