Augmented reality and Architecture

to apply augmented reality to architecture, you need to use a three-dimensional model.

Further down this page, a series of images of 3d models and their respective markers are shown to be able to view them on a mobile phone. The concept is to be able to bring 3d modeling in architecture to the public without having to use professional software.

For this, augmented reality needs a platform that introduces the 3d models in the images to be used as markers. I work with the platform Increasety, and her Smarphone App Scope Although there are many options. Keep in mind that the smartphone will render the model live, which means you have to download it to view it.

In the image below attached the step-by-step instructions to use augmented reality on your mobile phones. The application is free.
