The aim of Creating 3D architecture model shown through augmented reality thesis is to study the technology of augmented reality, its history, the way it works and to research different ways of making an augmented reality application.
As a first step in making an application we had to decide the topic of our project (what are we going to show through our application). The next step was to research and choose a way of making our project and showing our augmented reality.
For our project theme, we decided to pick something from architectural cultural field. We focused on historically remarkable and important buildings that stood in the capital city in the past but were since demolished. Our pick was the Jakopič pavilion.
The thesis is divided in two parts. In the first theoretical part, we focus on the explanation of augmented reality, what it is made of, historical overview and examples and areas of use. It also includes a more detailed presentation of selected Vuforia platform with which we have created our application.
In the second experimental part, we describe the steps of creating an augmented reality application in detail. We highlight and describe the problems and solutions we encountered in the process of making our application. Programs Blender and Unity are also briefly described, with which we made some of the necessary components for our product.
The last segment of the thesis is devoted to description and comparison of the results and findings.
