Major Omniverse updates increase access to generative AI, simulation and the industrial metaverse

Paul Cutsinger March 21, 2023


Developers and creators can better realize the massive potential of generative AI, simulation and the industrial metaverse with new Omniverse Connectors and other updates to NVIDIA Omniverse, a platform for creating and operating metaverse applications.

Omniverse Cloud, a platform-as-a-service unveiled today at NVIDIA GTC, equips users with a range of simulation and generative AI capabilities to easily build and deploy industrial metaverse applications.

New Omniverse Connectors and applications developed by third parties enable enterprises across the globe to push the limits of industrial digitalization.

Omniverse Ecosystem Expansion Omniverse enhances how developers and professionals create, design and deploy massive virtual worlds, AI-powered digital humans and 3D assets.

Its newest additions include:

New Omniverse Connectors: Elevating connected workflows, new Omniverse Connectors for the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio - including Siemens Teamcenter, Siemens NX and Siemens Process Simulate - Blender, Cesium, Emulate3D by Rockwell Automation, Unity and Vectorworks are now available - linking more of the world's most advanced applications through the Universal Scene Description (USD) framework. Azure Digital Twin,, FlexSim and NavVis Omniverse Connectors are coming soon.

SimReady 3D assets: Over 1,000 new SimReady assets enable easier AI and industrial 3D workflows. KUKA, a leading supplier of intelligent automation solutions, is working with NVIDIA and evaluating an adoption of the new SimReady specifications to make customer simulation easier than ever.

Synthetic data generation: Lexset and Siemens SynthAI are both using the Omniverse Replicator software development kit to enable computer-vision-aided industrial inspection. Datagen and Synthesis AI are using the SDK to create synthetic digital humans for AI training. And Deloitte is providing synthetic data generation services using Omniverse Replicator for customers across domains ranging from manufacturing to telecom.

Available now is LumenRT for NVIDIA Omniverse, developed by Bentley Systems, which enables automatic synchronized changes to visualization workflows for infrastructure digital twins, and applications developed by SyncTwin.

Also available now is Aireal's OmniStream, a web-embeddable and cloud-based extended reality digital twin platform that allows builders to give photorealistic 3D virtual tours to their buyers. Aireal's Spaces, a visualization tool that enables automatic generation of home interior design, is coming soon.

Run Omniverse Everywhere NVIDIA also introduced systems and services making Omniverse more powerful and easier to access.

Next-generation NVIDIA RTX workstations are powered by NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPUs, NVIDIA ConnectX-6 Dx SmartNICs and Intel Xeon processors.

The newly announced RTX 5000 Ada generation laptop GPU enables professionals to access Omniverse and industrial metaverse workloads in the office, at home or on the go.

Plus, NVIDIA introduced the third generation of OVX, a computing system for large-scale digital twins running within NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise, powered by NVIDIA L40 GPUs and Bluefield-3 DPUs.

Omniverse Cloud will be available to global automotive companies, enabling them to realize digitalization across their industrial lifecycles from start to finish. Microsoft Azure is the first global cloud service provider to deploy the platform-as-a-service.

Customers Driving Innovation in Omniverse Hundreds of enterprises are using Omniverse to transform their industrial lifecycles through digitalization, which improves the design, development and deployment of teams' operations.

In his GTC keynote, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang showcased how Lucid Motors is tapping Omniverse and USD workflows to enable automotive digitalization projects.

He also highlighted BMW Group's use of Omniverse to build and deploy its upcoming electric vehicle factory in Debrecen, Hungary.
