AB - The life cycle of an ILL instrument has two main stages. During the design of the instrument, a precise but static 3D model of the different components is developed. Then comes the exploitation of the instrument of which the control by the Nomad software allows scientific experiments to be performed. Almost all instruments at the ILL have moveable parts often hidden behind radiological protection elements such as heavy concrete walls or casemate. Massive elements of the sample environment like magnets and cryostats must be aligned in the beam. All those devices are able to collide with the surrounding environment. To avoid those types of accident, the instrument moves must be checked by a pre-experiment simulation that will reveal possible interferences. Nomad 3D is the application that links the design and the experiment aspects providing an animated 3D physical representation of the instrument while it moves. Collision detection algorithms will protect the moveable parts from crashes. During an experiment, it will augment the reality by enabling to "see" behind the walls. It will provide as well a precise virtual representation of the instrument during the simulations.
