Virtual environments (VEs) are becoming important tools for simulating manufacturing systems. Various virtual environment constructing techniques and toolkits have been devised in recent years. This paper provides an "inside" view of those methods. Based on the insight, a futuristic VE construction approach that aims to integrate manufacturing application knowledge with environment data is proposed and its implementation discussed.
