metaio Engineer 5.0 – AR in Engineering

on the Next Level


We proudly present a brand-new release of metaio’s most powerful Augmented Reality tool. After integrating additional modules for calibration and alignment, metaio Engineer provides every function for adjusting AR analyses. This applies especially to set-actual comparisons in product development, based on tracking with a measuring arm.
Here are the most sophisticated new features of metaio Engineer 5.0:

Integrated high precision camera calibration

Instead of the Sextant Calibration with a chessboard pattern, now you can chose the Extended Sextant Calibration based on a 3D AICON panel.

Efficient high precision off-set calibration

The offset between a camera and an external tracking sensor – like a measuring arm – now can be determined based on a 3D AICON pattern.

Alignment without external help

For finding out where an external tracking sensor is located in relation to the real object that has to be analyzed, no more external measurement tool is necessary.

at insideAR 2012


metaio and its partners will showcase many impressive use cases for AR in engineering, including:

AR Window-to-the-World

Large area auditing of manufacturing quality based on Infrared Tracking by ART

AR Remote-Rendering

Creating a detailed 360° environment from huge 3D models on mobile devices with RTT

Projective AR

Displaying different designs right on the surface of real objects with EXTEND3D


… and many more. Register for insideAR 2012 – today and join us October 1-2 in Munich!


Jack Dashwood
Jack knew that he was interested in Augmented Reality ever since he learned how to read at age 25. Fast forward and Jack now works at the center of the universe when it comes to AR: the offices of Metaio. How did he wind up here? We don’t know, but we have yet to find a legitimate excuse to get rid of him. In the meantime we let him work on the blog and run the Metaio US PR operations. When not talking and writing about AR technology, he can usually be found augmenting his reality by more traditional means down the local pub.
