Scope AR, a pioneer in enterprise-class augmented-reality (AR) solutions, announced the launch of WorkLink Create, a new web-based application for quickly creating and sharing AR content within the workplace.
WorkLink Create empowers aerospace, medical device, and industrial professionals to quickly create their own augmented reality content without any coding or 3D modeling expertise.
WorkLink Create transforms AR authorship with a browser-based workflow that natively accepts an exceptionally broad range of CAD file formats. Users of all experience levels can log in to WorkLink Create in their browser, quickly open their engineering model files, and place them within a mixed reality scene.
Users can then craft annotated work instructions in a drag-and-drop, code-free workflow similar to that of slide animations or consumer video editing applications — providing opportunities to digitally engineer and share new designs with ease.
What’s more is WorkLink has augmented operation for mobile power systems, modular data centers, aerospace manufacturing, aerospace fasteners, and more.
“It is just amazing to be at a point where the needs of the use case overlap with the availability of the right technology and, more importantly, the right partner: Scope AR,” said Karl Hutter, CEO of Click Bond. “We have inspired excitement with common customers and it’s really the tip of the iceberg where we can take this.”
Lockheed Martin has used Scope AR’s technology in the Orion program to help build the next manned spacecraft into deep space.
“In the past, we would have developers spend months developing these types of applications. With Scope AR’s WorkLink platform, we’re bringing this down to 28 minutes, and four minutes for an additional panel,” said Shelley Peterson, associate fellow at Lockheed Martin, “The ramp-up time on the platform has also been reduced significantly. We can bring in a new developer, have them go through a half-day training online and they can start creating work instructions.”
Commercial use cases that have been accelerated include training, commercial education, service, and support of advanced medical capital equipment such as robotic surgery, COVID-19 testing equipment, and sports medicine.
