ARPlugin for Vectorworks



Through AR-media™ Plugin, Vectorworks 3D models can be visualized out of the digital workspace directly on users' desktop, by connecting a simple webcam and by printing a suitable code.

Users can create their own Vectorworks Augmented Reality models and distribute them to their clients as independent, stand-alone files and let their clients experience such models in Augmented Reality in a click by using AR-media™ Player.

Layers' Management: 3D objects can be placed on different layers, which can be displayed independently during the AR visualization.

Timed Slideshow: you can organize your 3D contents to act as a set of slides. In fact, each layer can be displayed for a chosen time interval and then replaced with the following layer.

Shadows: you can configure the sunlight in SketchUp™ to cast shadows on 3D objects, in order to obtain a more realistic visualization. Moreover, you can interact with this light source in real-time, moving it and modifying the shadows' visualization.

Clipping/Sectioning: thanks to the Clipping planes' management features, it is possible to create sections of 3D objects in real-time.

Notes on exporting for the iOS/Android Player

Currently, some limitations apply when exporting models for the iOS player:
  • - advanced features like real-time shadows, layers and sectioning are not supported by the iOS/Android player

Please note that the iOS player is under continuous development and these limitations will be progressively removed.
