3D Modeling in Augmented Reality

University essay from Linköpings universitet/Informationskodning

Abstract: This project aims to make 3D modeling easy through the use of augmented reality. Black and white markers are used to augment the virtual objects. Detection of these is done with help from ARToolKit, developed at University of Washington. The model is represented by voxels, and visualised through the marching cubes algorithm. Two physical tools are available to edit the model; one for adding and one for removing volume. Thus the application is similar to sculpting or drawing in 3D. Thee resulting application is both easy to use and cheap in that it does not require expensive equipment.
