Autodesk releases preview of augmented reality plugin

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Autodesk Labs has released a free technology preview of a new augmented reality plugin.

As yet, the tool only works with the 2013 release of Showcase, Autodesk’s CAD rendering software. Still, it’s pretty neat to see it in action – and as a work-in-progress technology, it’s not impossible that it might eventually make it into the company’s DCC packages, particularly 3ds Max Design.

Interestingly, according to a user comment on YouTube, the software can use any image as a marker when dropping a 3D object into a live video feed. Most existing plugins require specific marker types.

The Augmented Reality technology preview will operate until 31 October 2012.
