“I used AR to avoid a catastrophic disaster,” says architect David Tomic. Check out how Tomic is using ARki....
Recently Tomic, an avid reviewer of architecture-related software, explored ARki’s features and benefits, giving you a fantastic insight into the app. In his video he explains that ARki is “an architectural app that uses AR technology to portray an unbuilt 3D model in the built environment.” A perfect summary.
Experience the AR model on-site
Not only does Tomic outline his experience with ARki, but, iPAD in hand, he demonstrates its use in the field. “You can take any house or any model that you have and show it in the real world, in the real environment, exactly where it needs to go.”
Architects can really wow home builders and developers by showing what their project will look like in AR. By visiting the real-world location with an iPAD, it’s easy– and dramatically satisfying– to walk clients through an augmented reality of the projected design. That AR tour allows people to consider the plan, dimensionally and to scale, from all angles, and in relation to adjacent structures. While there, ARki’s Transform tool allows the user to adjust the planned placement of the building on the site. That’s a lot of visual power without a lot of work.
Avoid Costly Mistakes
“Simply by walking through a project, understanding the layout of the land and what it might look like in the context, you can change something on paper before it’s ever built, It is significantly cheaper to change a line on paper than it is to move a wall in real life.”
ARki lets users walk through the interior of the project, to help understand the spaces in real-world context. Making the job less expensive and less time consuming – can’t argue with that!
Tomic highlights what he as an architect finds valuable:
Inspired to create your own AR experience?
Tomic’s verdict? “It does something very specific, very, very well.”
