Augmented Reality AR Apps and Examples

Tailor-made AR applications

CAD Schroer’s developers pay close attention to individual customer requirements and develop AR applications that precisely meet their needs. They aim to offer the highest degree of usability and an outstanding AR experience. The functions of machines and systems can be further illustrated with individual animations.

AR Apps for Sales and Marketing

Your product marketing can benefit substantially from the use of AR applications. Customers use our AR applications at trade shows and in product presentations to virtually display very large machines in the real world. Animations are used to illustrate the detailed workings of the machines and to simulate motion sequences. In addition, AR catalogue apps are used to extend product catalogues to include 3d models of individual products.

AR Apps for maintenance

Maintenance applications also benefit from augmented reality. For the maintenance of machines, relevant information is displayed in real time in the user’s field of view, which considerably simplifies the maintenance process. To achieve this, CAD Schroer creates AR applications that display context-sensitive information to ensure the maintenance team has the right information at the right time, thereby reducing downtime and saving costs.

Possible AR applications

CAD Models in AR

Display your 3D models in AR. CAD models can be used to present your products in AR. Show the models of your plants or machines in meetings or sales talks. Animations and additional information can be included to enhance your presentations.

AR product catalogues

Use an AR application to bring your product catalogue to life. With just your catalogue and an AR catalogue App, your customers can see your products displayed in the real world and have their functionality explained to them in detail.

QR Codes & AR Models

Use a QR code in your documents or on your exhibition stand to show models of your products in Augmented Reality. Your models can also be animated and supplemented with additional information.

3D designs in AR

You can use Augmented Reality to display and check your 3D designs in a real environment. Your model is displayed at its real-world size and in the exact location designated for it.

AR-maintenance instructions

The maintenance of highly complex machinery can be facilitated by Augmented Reality. Here, individual maintenance steps are displayed directly on the actual machine. Maintenance documents and live information from the machines can be displayed directly in the AR app.

AR text recognition

Have an AR application scan for text on your machines or on individual components. Additional information and documents for the scanned items can then be automatically identified and displayed.

Devices and Platforms


AR applications can be used with most smartphones equipped with integrated cameras. The applications display the camera’s field of view and add supplementary information in real-time.


AR applications can also be used with tablets. Their typically larger high-resolution screens offer the advantage of being able to clearly display more information, and in greater detail.

AR Glasses

AR glasses have the advantage that the user can work hands-free. The user’s field of view is supplemented with additional information, and through the use of integrated cameras, the user’s view can even be shared with others.

Download Sample Apps


The i4 AUGMENTED REVIEW AR app provides functionality for loading and viewing 3D models in augmented reality. All the user needs is an AR compatible smartphone or tablet. Models with a size of up to 4 MB for FBX files and 7 MB for OBJ files can be loaded. The PRO version is required for loading larger models.


Augmented Reality (AR) offers your company new possibilities to bring data sheets, brochures or catalogs to life. With the help of AR, your marketing documents can not only contain simple photos or images, but also three-dimensional models that are displayed above the images to match the content.

SLM NV – Klaus Union

We have created several AR Apps based on existing CAD models for our customer Klaus Union GmbH & Co. KG. These Apps include a variety of animations to showcase the functionality and benefits of their pumps and fittings. This type of App is ideal for sales and marketing use at trade shows and customer visits.
