This paper illustrates the potential of virtual reality to provide value added function to user manual using various tools available to develop the simulation. generally, this project aims at developing models for animating the functions of a printer, with extended capability of faxing, photocopying and scanning in hopes of becoming a better material source for references. The paper also describes the method used to developed the models. Practically, AutoCAD and 3D Studio Max are very powerful pieces of software, however to be able to fully utilize the potential of the software, it will be purely based on one past experience and creativity. Although both software yield simply interface, yet the functions remain in this software are complicated and advanced. This project tends reveal the advantage of virtual reality but by no means virtual reality will be serve to replace the conventional method used in designing user manual. Rather, it gives insight to readers the application of virtual reality can be extended to cover training (particularly technical training) needs to be more creative, due to certain circumstances. Even though this project only concentrates on operating small scale office peripheral, however the author hopes the paper and the models will serve as a reference, providing insights and confidence to the readers to exploit the potential of virtual reality in other fields from the training perspectives.
