Augmented Reality in an engineering environment

Augmented Reality

Overlay Digital Content in the real world

What is Augmented Reality?

Augmented Reality (AR) enables you to see your physical environment and digital content at the same time on a conventional screen (e.g., a tablet or smartphone).

When applied to engineering related scenarios, this can be a very powerful tool for improving decision making and getting to market faster. Whether you are sat in your office, a showroom, or a factory, displaying your 3D models in AR brings your product to life, enabling you to visualize your models in a real-life environment and interact with your data in a spatial context. Using TheoremXR Experiences in Augmented Reality is particularly useful for engineering related tasks such as inspection, training and packaging.

Supported Augmented Reality devices

TheoremXR Augmented Reality experiences can be used on multiple devices, including those of the following:

  • iOS (including iPhone & iPad)
  • Android (including phones and tablets)
  • Windows

How can I use my existing CAD data in Augmented Reality?

To view your CAD data in AR, you must first prepare your data for XR using the Visualization Pipeline, an Enterprise level fully automated solution. By simply loading your CAD data onto the server, the pipeline automatically optimises the data and prepares it for XR, ready to use in either Augmented, Virtual or Mixed Reality.

The Visualization Pipeline supports a variety of input and output options depending upon your use case and requirement. These include CATIA V5, 3DEXPERIENCE, CREO, JT, NX FBX, GLTF Unity and Unreal.

Which TheoremXR Experiences can I use in Augmented Reality?

Below are the TheoremXR experiences that can be used in Augmented Reality.

Visualization Experience
