The app made for designers, to easily visualize 3D models and prototypes in Augmented Reality Space.

As a primary mode of practice, Architects and designers employ 3D modelling tools throughout the process of design. With the increased accessibility of Augmented Reality technology, we are now able to imagine a future where these tools become a fundamental aspect of our design process. The goal of this project is to create a platform that allows designers to go deeper into understanding what they are drawing, in particular with considerations of scale and spatiality, that is currently disconnected through existing means.

This App is made with the intention of simplifying the process of visualizing 3D models in AR space for designers or curious individuals. It allows designers to move from pure virtual space such as their rhino workspace by uploading 3D objects to the cloud, and then visualizing their designs in AR space through portable devices.
