Augmented Reality Plug-in for Autodesk 3dsMax Released

Submitted by on Thursday, 22 April 2010One Comment

If you use AutoDesk then you’ll be pleased to know that Inglobe Technologies, an Italian company that specialize in the development of augmented reality solutions, has just released the first augmented reality plug-in for Autodesk 3dsMax.

They have put together an interesting video on publishing via AutoDesk and viewing the AR content.

More about AR-Media

With AR-media™ Plugin, Autodesk® 3dsMax® users can now experiment with the power of Augmented Reality inside this incredible 3d modeling software. Simply stated, the Augmented Reality technology  allows users to visualize their 3D creations directly in the real physical space which surrounds them. Indeed, through ARMedia™ Plugin, 3dsMax® models can be visualized out of the digital workspace directly on users’ desktop or in any physical location, by connecting a simple webcam and by printing a  suitable code. By means of the AR-media™ Exporter users can create and publish augmented reality files autonomously. Files created by the Exporter can be visualized on any computer with the freely available AR-media™ Player, without the need of having Autodesk® 3dsMax® and the Plugin installed. Users can now create their own 3dsMax® 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.

The bundle provides users with an advanced visualization functionality which serves two main purposes in the design life cycle:

- Help to study and analize virtual prototypes in real environments
- Communicate 3D projects immersively and astonishingly

All you need to make AR-media™ Plugin & Exporter work is a personal computer, a webcam and a printed code attached to the software. A wide range of Head Mounted Displays, including the Vuzix® CamAR, eMagin, i-glasses™ are also supported.
