Autodesk brings LEGO Brickley to life digitally with 3D instructions
Autodesk, Inc. recently exhibited an innovative new approach for 3D interactive building instructions at LEGO World 2012 in Copenhagen.
Created specifically for the event, the digital assembly instructions can be experienced on a custom developed iPad app powered by Autodesk Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer.
Children of all ages will have the opportunity to use the app to view interactive 3D animated building instructions to assemble Brickley, the LEGO dragon. Presenting a new experience that brings the physical and digital world together in an exciting way, the app allows users to stop the animation, zoom in on a part or rotate the model to see exactly how parts need to be fitted together.
Autodesk collaborated with the LEGO Group to develop the LEGO branded app utilising Inventor Publisher technology, helping to provide a totally new building experience for LEGO fans at the LEGO World 2012 event.
The LEGO Group aims to help children enjoy a seamless, tactile play experience using the 3D digital instructions on their mobile device touchscreen on the physical LEGO bricks. The partnership with Autodesk allows the company to explore how the impact of 3D interactive technology can potentially enhance customer experience.
Autodesk Inventor Publisher software helps manufacturers explain their products with clear, accurate and compelling 2D and 3D product documentation. Inventor Publisher generates 3D interactive instructions that run on iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices.
