A custom AR workflow that fits in your pocket

Take the next leap forward in asset visualisation.

Available on the iPhone and iPad.

OBJ ViewAR is a new way to view and interact with your modelled and textured .obj files. It can import files from cloud services like iCloud, Dropbox and Google Drive, and display them in your surrounding environment.

Use OBJ ViewAR to look around your textured assets in a real environment before rendering them in a game engine, or to affordably add AR to your studio's pre-viz pipeline, or even use it as an on-set reference of CG elements for framing.

Available for

iPhone and iPad

Compatible with either device, you can take the OBJ ViewAR experience with you anywhere. Use the larger display of the iPad when you're on-set for many to see, or make the most of the iPhone's portability if you want to check your modelling and texture work in the studio.


The core functions that make your AR experience effortless

Any .obj file

Import your own .obj file and experience it in your surroundings with AR. Select from a range of colours to texture your model, or upload a single .jpg texture map to see your model in all its glory.

HUD Controls

While the HUD provides valuable statistics, it can also be used to quickly change the opacity or specularity of the model, or take a screenshot / screen recording for sharing.

Powerful AR

Built on Apple's ARKit framework, OBJ ViewAR tracks your object's location like no other single-camera system, maintaining its position when the camera is pointed away or even experiencing heavy motion blur.

Real World Scale

While you're loading up your asset, the app is calculating the real world scale of the scene, allowing you to place your object at its natural size within the environment.

More Features

Refined asset control, intuitive gestures, alerts and more

Files From The Cloud

OBJ ViewAR supports loading files from the new Files app in iOS 11, which means you can bring in files from your favourite Cloud providers. The files get stored locally, so you can use them even if you're offline!

Hide the HUD

For a truly full-screen AR experience, simply swipe down on the HUD once you've loaded in a model. It can be brought back with a single swipe up.

Custom Sizing

The import screen gives you ultimate control over the initial scale of your model. Change the units of measurements to suit to file's units, or just specify a new static height and let the real world scale do the rest!

Custom Textures

Instead of plain colours or a single diffuse texture, OBJ ViewAR now supports multiple texture files using a single MTL file.

Scale and Rotate

During you AR session, you can move and rotate the model using standard gestures. If you've enabled it in the Settings, you can also pinch to scale the model to suit your environment. The HUD will even give you the new size!

Session Warnings

If you're in the middle of viewing your model, OBJ ViewAR will ask for confirmation before you Reset or try and go back to the Settings screen to make sure you don't accidentally leave your session! You'll also get helpful hints and tips for placing objects or setting up the environment.
