Ratings and Reviews
A New Way to Explore Architecture with ARki
I recently started using the ARki app to view architectural designs and I have to say, it's pretty cool. Instead of just looking at 2D plans or static 3D models, I can see the design come to life in front of me through my phone's camera. It's a unique way to experience architecture and get a better sense of the design. If you're into architecture or just want to try out some cool AR technology, give ARki a try.
One amazing app
I have been using this app for a while now, it delivers AR to a very high standard. The app has gone through numbers of updates and has improved massively.
File too large
From Sketchup you have to create an FBX file. From my 4mb Sketchup file the FBX file was 324mb. This application couldn’t upload due to the file being too large. Not sure if there is a solution but won’t be subscribing. Looks good but not able to try with one of my models. This is an update - Following the above the developer got in contact (via Apple) with an email address to contact them which I will be doing to resolve the issue.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. We would be happy to look into why your sketchup file is so large. Please feel free to email us directly email@example.com and we can provide you with export help.
