This allows other companies to design their own AR applications using Vectary’s technology. The API gives users the capacity to visualise real-time data on their 3D models, connect them with databases and control physical products directly from the 3D model viewer.

In industries like automotive, aerospace and manufacturing, manufacturers use ‘digital twins’: virtual models that simulate performance so that data can be gathered about how products will interact with environments. 

Widespread adoption of digital twins across enterprises has been hindered by challenges such as the high cost of implementation and the need for specialised skills and expertise, but companies who can afford it — especially those that have design teams spread across multiple continents — have embedded the technology within manufacturing processes. Hyundai currently has a VR design review system that allows team members around the world to analyse every step of the design and modelling phases.

“Our API democratizes access to digital twin technology, enabling any company to easily create digital twins of their products without needing extensive resources or expertise,” said Michal Koor, CEO and Founder of Vectary. “By empowering businesses to leverage digital twins for prototyping, real-time monitoring, and interactive customer experiences, we’re helping to drive innovation and growth across industries.”
