AUGmentecture is an augmented reality platform for design collaboration that enables the viewing of 3D models in augmented reality (AR) format.
With over 10,000 users and over 500,000 models viewed, AUGmentecture is effortless, rapid in converting models, and consistent in the market. One of the leading applications in the AR space, the AUGmentecture app is rated as the highest start in the Autodesk App Store as well as Android and iOS stores.
Architects, engineers, and design professionals are using the AUGmentecture platform to display their 3D models in augmented reality on mobile devices and share them with colleagues. The goal is to make augmented reality a day to day design communication and collaboration tool for architects, designers, and artists to simply design, upload, and view their models on a mobile device.
AUGmentecture combines the two worlds of architecture related software and the science of augmented reality. Currently in the construction industry, once the plans have been developed and issued to the contractor, it is then the contractors’ responsibility to view the two-dimensional plans, construction documents, and fully understand the intent of the designer.
Normally, the design renderings of the project are printed as hard copies and presented for visual understanding of the project intent.
To view an augmented reality image, one needs to develop the model, transfer the object into the augmented software, print the standard marker, and view the model by pointing the camera to the marker. This can also be done on stationary computer stations. The marker in most cases is standard and not unique to the model. So you may be able to view multiple models by the same marker.
The purpose of AUGmentecture is to give the ability to the end-user to view any document in 3D by creating a unique marker in each individual document.
AUGmentecture streamlines the setup, upload, and processing of the models into augmented reality. It can be thought of as printing a PDF but in the augmented reality format.
