ThingWorx Studio is a rapid AR authoring environment that enables industrial stakeholders to quickly create and share scalable augmented reality experiences without writing any code. The easy reuse of existing 3D geometries and animated sequences with ThingWorx Studio enables users to reduce the cost and complexity of content creation for compelling AR experiences. Model Targets, available in the upcoming Vuforia 7 release and supported by ThingWorx Studio, will enable the recognition and tracking of objects based on shape from pre-existing 3D models, and will not require a marker. This high-fidelity object recognition provides more accurate positioning so 3D content can be aligned with greater precision for use cases where step-by-step instructions and product data are overlaid onto the physical product. 

With support for Vuforia 7, ThingWorx Studio will make use of Vuforia Ground Plane, a new capability for placing content on the ground, floor or tabletop. Because Ground Plane leverages ARKit and ARCore through a technology known as Vuforia Fusion, ThingWorx Studio will enable users to create robust and reliable AR experiences across a broader range of industrial environments. Ground Plane will be an exceptional solution for industrial use cases that do not require a physical product such as a virtual design review or a visualization tool for sales and marketing. ThingWorx Studio enables industrial enterprise users to quickly create scalable AR experiences that improve time to revenue, reduce costs and complexity and provide enterprise scalability. Read More
