TimberTech Launches Augmented Reality iPad App, TimberTech 3D Deck and Rail, to Help Visualize and Bring New Decks to Life
TimberTech introduces a revolutionary approach to deck design with a realistic 3D iPad app that takes deck and rail visualization to an exciting new level. Using groundbreaking, augmented reality technology, the new app, called “TimberTech 3D Deck and Rail” allows the iPad user to envision their deck and rail choices right in their own backyard. TimberTech 3D utilizes a “visualization marker,” downloadable at www.timbertech.com/inspiration/deck-designer-app, to allow a user to customize each design with various TimberTech Deck and Rail products, colors and even different baluster in-fill options. It then provides an accurate 3D image of what the future deck might look like – in the exact space it will be built.
With TimberTech 3D, the iPad user will simply place the marker at the desired deck location on the back of their home or on any flat area. Then, launch the app and enter the Visualizer mode to scan the marker and activate the computer vision magic. Once activated, a user can add deck boards and railing profiles in any TimberTech color and with any TimberTech railing infill -- cable, composite balusters, aluminum balusters and even glass panels. When choices are complete, a realistic image is created that allows the user to visualize their deck as if they were viewing it in their own backyard. All personalized designs of dream outdoor spaces can be saved for future reference or even shared with friends directly from within the App.
TimberTech 3D is easy and straight-forward to use, with results that make it simple for a homeowner to view and select their ideal TimberTech products. It is even possible to see detailed, close-up views of TimberTech’s decking colors and textures, taking 3D to a level far beyond other visualization tools on the market. And, zooming in and out for a better view is as simple as changing your distance to the marker. For users who aren’t into 3D technology, the new TimberTech App will also have glamour images of elegantly styled TimberTech decks that can be customized by swapping out decking colors, rail styles, infills, and colors. A user can even visualize different styles of furniture with their deck and rail options.
