Communicate design intent in its intended physical environment
Providing the opportunity to see what a design will look like in its intended setting can be a useful communication tool for both designers and marketers. It can provide confidence in a product’s intended look and feel without having to make the actual product available. By altering one’s perception using digital information, users can view 3D models as though they physically existed.
Free, easy access to next-generation visualization
Solid Edge Augmented Reality lets you visualize products true to scale, or scaled down for larger products, anywhere, using a next-level digital prototype through a free application. This can provide confidence in a product’s intended look and feel without the product even leaving the manufacturing floor.
Assists in design collaboration
Solid Edge Augmented Reality is great for design reviews. An accurate representation of the product’s size/shape helps clients and colleagues understand how the product suits its intended environment, even when teams are geographically dispersed. Implementation benefits include reduced time to market and cost, improved quality and increased productivity.
Secure sharing of the augmented reality experience is available via the cloud using Xcelerator Share.
Extending AR to other augmented, virtual and mixed-reality experiences
Solid Edge can export OBJ files to other augmented, virtual and mixed-reality (AR/VR/MR) experiences through third-party systems.
