What is BuildAR?


BuildAR Pro is a program that allows you to create your own 3D augmented reality scenes. Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that lets you interact with the real world and virtual objects at the same time. Three-dimensional virtual models are overlaid on the real world as seen through your computer’s webcam, making them appear to part of your surrounding environment.

BuildAR Pro uses marker-based tracking, which means that the 3D models appear attached to physical printed markers you can design yourself. By creating a set of these markers and some 3D models you can easily build up your own augmented reality scene. The 3D models can be made using almost any modeling program or downloaded from many websites on the internet.

BuildAR Pro provides a graphical user interface that simplifies the process of authoring AR scenes, meaning that you don’t need to be a programmer or computer expert to experiment with Augmented Reality. In fact, BuildAR Pro is perfect for all those interested in AR for entertainment, education, marketing, research, design, architecture, and other application areas.

Some of the features of BuildAR Pro include:

  • loading 3D models in a variety of file formats
  • positioning models relative to real markers
  • scaling models
  • user customizable tracking patterns
  • windowed or full screen viewing model
  • loading and saving of AR scenes
  • support video input from for a variety of sources
