Discover the AR/VR Toolkit at Forge DevCon

Be the first to discover Forge AR/VR Toolkit – only at Forge DevCon Las Vegas.

Bringing high-quality design content into a virtual or augmented reality experience has always been really difficult.


Until now!


At Forge DevCon in Las Vegas, we will be showcasing – for the first time – the new Forge Virtual and Augmented Reality Toolkit. This is an SDK that transforms the workflow for bringing data from your design files to your favorite AR or VR experience from ‘head-banging hard’ to ‘smooooth and simple’. Hololens, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Daqri, Apple ARKit, Google ARCore, … , even Google Cardboard – they’re all supported.

The Forge AR/Kit allows you to stream data from your design file directly to your experience, providing graphics and object metadata on demand. Line of site, occlusion, and LOD are all taken care of for you, so you can get on with the job of creating the experience your user needs instead of fighting for framerate.
