FIRST: The Reality…
Traditionally, property and architectural documentation has always been 2D.
Some large developments or iconic projects would engage a model maker to create an impressive, scaled, physical 3D model, to enable viewers to fully understand the proposal and its context. This real world model making solution continues today, but these models are extreamly expensive and delicate, and so they need to be placed in secure, set locations.
Below is a quick overview of the different types of “Reality” that are a modern replacement for the traditional model, with many benefits, such as cost and accessibility.
Augmented Reality [AR] is a powerful tool in itself, and continuing developments in its implimentation are enabling us to use it in new and innovative ways.
Augmented Reality is as close to Mixed Reality as we can currently get for everyday use, as not only can it provide the full model view to give understanding, but when the model is enlarged you can be physically inside the model and get a perspective similar to Virtual Reality.
Below is a model of a product, in this instance it is a garden room, but it could be furniture, greenhouse, water feature etc. If a picture is worth a thousand words then this AR model must be worth a million.
To view in AR please tap the AR button to the top right of the model.
Augmented Reality is as close as we can currently get towards Mixed Reality for the mainstream.
It enables you to bring the virtual information into your environment and experience it in a number of different ways.
THIS PAGE WILL BE CONTINUALLY UPDATED TO SHOW EXAMPLES OF THE DIFFERENT WAYS AR CAN BE USED IN REAL WORLD SITUATIONS, PLUS THE ADVANCEMENTS WE ARE MAKING WITH THE SKILLS AND ABILITY OF THIS TOOL
From the basic 2D sales plans we are able to create a 3D Augmented Reality Model.
Generally for sales plans we produce a ‘White Model’ as standard, as colour can detract from the purpose of the model, but we are able to add a few basic colours/textures if prefered.
Below are a couple of recent models for you to view and try out yourselves.
Architectural+ Augmented Reality Models
As well as the basic sales plans, we are able to produce more detailed AR models for a range of uses:
