Understand AR field

Understand AR field

AR field displays the  AR sets  (3D models) from the  AR library  in your form as a dropdown. You can choose a model from either  marker-based or markerless AR sets , and  annotate  it. Annotation helps in understanding the model better by adding pointers to its surface structure.

It is recommended to select  at least one AR set  as an input to the AR field so that you can choose it from the field's dropdown when you access the live mode of your app.

The images below show an AR field in this format:

  • When a user accesses from a web browser:

  • When a user accesses from a phone or tablet, you can select the required AR model from the dropdown. You can also click the scan icon at the top-right to scan any image to plot the 3D model.


  • With AR, classroom education can be intuitive and interactive, as it enables teaching staff to show virtual examples of textbook concepts. This in turn will enable students to engage actively, learn faster, and memorize information easily. Imagine you've created a learning app for your school named  Learn with AR . In the  Microservices  section, under AR library, you can create an AR set titled  3D diagrams  and add  3D models  of textbook images along with their markers. You've added a form titled  AR concepts  that contains an AR field. This AR field has the  3D diagrams  marker-based AR sets as its input and you can annotate the diagrams with additional information. You can place stickers of the textbook diagrams on your classroom walls, which can be scanned by your students through the provided devices. Upon scanning the sticker, the device will display an animation of the concept behind the sticker image, thereby explaining the concept in a graphical manner. 
  • Imagine you've created an app called  Zylker Furniture  and added a form titled  Select Furniture . This form has an AR field titled  Try your furniture  that allows users to try your products virtually. Users can check if the products fit well in their rooms (in the case of furniture products) by either partial or full replacement of the original view of an object with an augmented view of the same object, and make informed choices, all within the comfort of their homes.
  • Imagine you've created an app called  IT Assets management  and added a form titled  Request/Replace asset . When there's a request or replacement of an asset, employees can capture their assets' image, annotate the defective parts and upload them in your form's AR field. You can view the added images and take steps for the replacement.
