Collaborate through Augmented Reality

As products become more complex and the workforce becomes more global, enterprise visualization needs to improve. Passing 2D drawings or using 3D models on a screen is no longer going to cut it. Designers must be able to view and interact with models in a real-world setting alongside disparate stakeholders.


With an augmented reality design share application, product designers can visualize products both on the shop floor and in the field. Internal stakeholders, contractors, and suppliers can dynamically work with a model – literally getting under the hood of the product. AR enables teams to quickly view and comment upon models and make decisions simultaneously from around the world. PTC’s PLM applications enable users to securely create and publish AR experiences and share designs instantly with anyone in the world. By integrating with Vuforia, PTC’s world-leading AR platform, Windchill users can author and publish an AR experience with the click of a button right inside of your design.
