Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that allows 3D models to be integrated with the real-time camera view of a smartphone or tablet – bringing 3D objects into a virtual "magic window." Augment is the top rated augmented reality app on the App Store and Google Play and is available for iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Augment clients include L'Oreal, Siemens and General Mills – to name just a few.

Strata Design 3D CX 8 for Mac is the latest release of Strata's flagship 3D modeling and animation application. Strata's developers worked closely with Augment engineers for tight integration, allowing users to publish their 3D content to Augment's cloud platform with just a few clicks and then display their designs with augmented reality using the Augment app. Once synchronized on the app, the 3D models are all available offline for further visualisation.

Augment Co-founder and CEO, Jean-Francois Chianetta, believes that Design 3D CX 8 has the most tightly integrated publishing system to date for their platform. "We both put substantial time and resources into making this a simple and seamless publishing system. Strata designers can now view their projects in a real-world location as part of the design workflow and for presentation - often eliminating the need for expensive prototypes."

"Our partnership with Augment really opens new doors for 3D designers," said Strata President, Ken Bringhurst. "Augmented reality, real-time web presentation and 3D printing are three of the key technology integrations in Design 3D CX 8. Augment is the industry leader for augmented reality and shows our commitment to our users and the future of 3D design."
