SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED - Effectiveness Of Interactive 3D Graphics on Mobile Devices for Object Assembly

Guy W. Zimmerman

Abstract

A study was conducted to explore the effectiveness of interactive 3D graphics on a mobile device to present instructions for an assembly task: building four Lego models of varying complexity. Our results show significant improvement in assembly correctness and time to complete the assembly when subjects used an interactive presentation compared to a non-interactive one. The study also explored the intuitive notion of 3D object complexity and compared perceived object complexity with experimentally measured values.
