Tutorial - Quick and Easy Augmented Reality from SketchUp/3DMax etc Creating your own Augmented Reality is, thanks to ARTAG, staggeringly easy. Yet behind the simplicity lays a serious potential for both the hobbyist, local government use and the professional practice. The only requirements are a webcam, printer and the ability to export models in either .obj, .wrl or .ase formats. As such if you have a model in SketchUp, 3DMax or any other common 3D package you can now view it on your desk using Augmented Reality. Step 1 Download ARTag and unzip the contents to a folder.

Step 4 Making sure your webcam is plugged in navigate to the ‘compiled_demos’ folder and double click on 3d_augmentations_usb.exe. Step 5 Pictured left we have highlighted the main line in setup_artag_3d.cfg.
