Stirling-based software developer Linknode has unveiled its augmented reality mobile app 3DTry.it at the 3D Printshow London 2012.

3DTry.it provides 360-degree model visualisation in the mobile environment by integrating imagery and real-world sensors. It requires no markers, no paper cut-out squares, codes, prints or tracker images.

The app can work with most 3D modeling and print file formats, including .sdx and .stl. It is supported on multiple devices: Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and iOS.

Dr Crispin Hoult, director at Linknode, said: ""The platform uses geospatial data from the compass, accelerometer and gyroscope that are standard in these devices to intuitively alter the angle depending on the orientation of your device.

"So if you point the smartphone down the view will rotate so you're viewing the top of the 3D model. You get a level of interaction with digital models that you can't have with a static PDF."

Implementation of the software, which can be embedded in an existing app – such as an storefront, to allow 360 viewing of products – or offered as a standalone solution will cost from around £5,000 upwards depending on the number of items. Printweek reported.
