Solid Works India Fans: eDrawings for iOS with Augmented Reality

By: Amit Chohan

How does this happen? You’ve been sharing the design with them the entire time. So how could they perceive it so differently?
When you think about it, whether you’re designing a watch or a motorcycle, everything ends up being the same size on your computer screen. We zoom-to-fit to maximize our work space, and there is usually no visual reference on the screen to help us correctly perceive size. So we’re not certain of a product’s actual size until we have a physical model that we can compare to other objects in the real world.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could take your design and put a virtual model of it on the table right next to you in the room? That way you could then look at it next to real products, slide and spin it around on the table, and get a complete sense of the product’s true size, scale, and proportions. And what if you could do this at any time in the design process, and as often as you like?
Well, now you can do just that! We have enhanced eDrawings for iOS to now include Augmented Reality (AR). I will let the two videos below do most of the talking, but here are a few noteworthy points:
 AR is available in both the Standard and Professional versions of eDrawings for iPad and iPhone

 It lets everyone on the design team see your product at full scale so its true size is obvious to everyone. Customers who have previewed this have told us that this will be a great sales tool when promoting their own products to their customers
 You can use Configurations to load an entire product line in eDrawings, and then use AR to place any specific product variation on the table in front of your customer

 eDrawings for iOS with Augmented Reality is now available in the Apple App Store. If you previously purchased eDrawings for your iOS device, just update it in iTunes to get this new capability.
