With the KITS XRPro Edition, you can present your solution to your client in Augmented Reality (AR). If you’re not familiar with this new tech, here’s a quick breakdown:
Augmented Reality adds to the reality you see, rather than replacing it. Computer generated objects are combined with a live view using the camera on your smartphone.
The purpose of AR when it comes to selling is to give your clients a “try before you buy” experience. With AR, they can see 3D furniture pieces in their own office space to get a better understanding of your solution with perfect clarity. Ultimately helping them decide faster and speeding up the sale.
To view your KITS project in Augmented Reality, you will first need to enable XR Mode on your account. From your Scene Builder, tap the Gear Icon to access your Project Settings and tap the switch to turn KITS XR mode ON. Tap Back > to return to your project.
Sending to a Mobile Device
In just a few steps you can share any KITS project with a mobile device to view in AR. Keep in mind, the smartphone you are sharing with must meet certain requirements to accept the project and to view the project with the KITS Mobile XRPro Viewer app. Take a look at our article on Device Requirements for further details.
To get started, tap KITS XR from the top navigation menu and tap Send Project Link.
A popup windows will appear. Select the country and enter the mobile phone number of your recipient.
Note: Phone numbers are not stored or collected
When you’re ready to send your project tap Send a Link Now. When your project has been shared successfully, a confirmation message will appear, “Project link sent to user successfully“.
In a few minutes, your recipient will receive an auto-generated text message with a unique URL link for the project you wish to share in AR. Tapping this link will automatically open the KITS Mobile XRPro Viewer app. If you do not have this app currently installed on your device, the link will direct you to either the Google Play Store or Apple App Store to download the viewer.
What is the KITS Mobile XRPro Viewer app?

Viewing the Project in AR
With the XRPro Viewer opened, you will see the shared project on the main menu screen. Tap the thumbnail image of the project to view in AR.
Follow along with the on-screen tutorial to get familiar with using the viewer app.
Loading a New Project
You can only have one project in your app at a time. This means when you receive a new link for a different KITS project, the app will ask you if you want to “Close this scene and load new project?“. Tap YES and a new project will appear on your main menu screen. Tap the project to continue.
