NEW AUGMENTED REALITY
Now Available: eDrawings® for iOS with Augmented Reality

Wouldn’t it be great if you could take your design and put a virtual model of it on the table right next to you in the room? That way you could look at it next to real products, slide and spin it around on the table, and get a complete sense of the product’s true size, scale, and proportions. And what if you could do this at any time in the design process, and as often as you like? Now you can!
