Augmented Reality (AR)

The AR feature (short for Augmented Reality) is started with a click on the icon acARExport in the Presentation tab, Share group. With this feature you can export your planning into the export formats for Augumented Reality to transfer the export files to your smartphone. AR files can also be sent or linked in a presentation. 

Note: Your mobile device must be AR capable and on Android you may need to install an AR viewer app.
