Augment removes the guesswork by delivering a product visualization platform for consumer packaged goods, manufacturing, interior design, and many more segments. It is an end-to-end solution to manage, view, and share 3D product models in augmented reality (AR). Businesses upload 3D models to the Augment online manager, so the user can visualize that model, integrated in the real world in real time, via the Augment mobile app. Augment also has developed a free desktop tool for designers to help bridge the gap between 3D modeling software and the model’s final appearance in AR.
The Augment image recognition capabilities are “Powered by Vuforia™.” Augment also leverages the Vuforia Cloud Recognition service to recognize and track thousands of custom images submitted by its customers.
More than 180 active clients, 6,000 daily active users, and 2 million downloads has earned Augment top listings in both the iOS and Android app stores. Customers use Augment’s enhanced visual communication to shorten the production and creative life cycles, and simulate digital drawings in physical space.
"What we've found through these demonstrations with Augment is that it opens up creative and impactful conversations that we previously could not have had without exhaustive and otherwise lengthy efforts," says Kenny Endermuhle, manager of retail innovation technology at Nestle Purina. "For instance, if we wanted to test a wood floor or new header system at retail, we previously had to physically fabricate the structure, disrupt the store to install and await the results."
To learn more about the platform watch the Getting Started Video or take advantage of the free trial. You can also check out the Augment demos within their mobile app (App Store, Google Play), and learn what Augment’s customers already know…seeing is believing.
