With the words of Debarati Nath, Editor in chief at SketchUp ur Space “The gap between digital world and real world is filled in by AR Media plugin for SketchUp. The information which is implicitly associated with a context is made directly usable and accessible by means of the AR interface. AR Media plugin for Google SketchUp, adds Debarati, is a hot and spicy topic for SketchUp now a days. With the help of this plugin users can visualize and study their virtual models in the real space. This helps them to get a better understanding about their product. The users can also communicate with their client more effectively by this wonderful plug in. To get all these advantages first of all you need to download the AR Media Plug in in your computer. Then you need a web cam and the printed codes that come with the software. And you just start visualize Augmented Reality in a click.”
