How It Works

Our solution consists of an Augmented Reality web application for mobile devices and a browser based platform called ‘the Arficio Platform’. The working of both components is explained below.

The Arficio Platform (platform.arficio.com) is used by businesses to upload and manage 3D models of their products, so their customers can view them in Augmented Reality in the Arficio Platform app.

When a customer scans a QR code and clicks on a link on a mobile device, they are redirected to the Augmented Reality web application to view the scanned product in Augmented Reality.

The Arficio Platform

Export 3D models from your 3D software program in GLTF, GLB, OBJ or FBX.

Only 3D files in the GLTF or GLB, OBJ and FBX formats are currently supported in the Arficio Platform. More formats will be supported in the future.

On the Models page, click on the ADD MODEL tile or blue button and upload your 3D models in one of the supported formats (GLTF or GLB, OBJ and FBX).

Click on a 3D model on the models page and go to the ‘View in AR’ section. Copy the QR code or link and share them to let your customers view your 3D models in AR. Click the button on your handheld device to preview the model in AR. You could also let your web developers create a button with our provided link on your website to facilitate the use for mobile users.

 

Use the QR code or link in your mails, offers or invoices to your customers. Or copy them on your existing marketing means like your website or brochure.

 

When your customer scans the QR code or clicks on the link on a mobile device, the AR web application will open automatically to view the 3D model.

On the models page, you can rename or delete a model.

 

On the analytics page, you can see various statistics on the usage of your 3D models.

The Augmented Reality web application

Your customers will scan the QR code or click on the link that you have provided them on a mobile device after which the AR web application will open automatically to view the 3D model.

In the web application, customers can first preview and rotate the 3D model before placing it in AR.

Click on the cube icon to place the 3D model in AR in your room. Point the camera to the floor to scan the surface that you want to place the 3D model on. Once the 3D model is placed, you can use one finger to move the model and two fingers to rotate it.

Once you’re happy with the placement of the model, you can choose to take a picture of it by using the button in the bottom of your screen.

Exit the web application by clicking the cross in the top right corner.
