Application of augmented reality to the teaching process in the field of Computer Aided Design

  • 1 Technical University of Košice, Faculty of Manufacturing technologies with a seat in Prešov, Slovakia


The aim of this article is to point out the needs of the implementation of augmented reality in the educational process in the field of computer modelling. This topic addresses issues in the field of mechanical engineering, where it focuses mainly on the needs of education using innovative augmented reality approaches. With the help of modern visualization methods, all practical and theoretical knowledge of computer aided manufacturing technologies ware applied in a suitable electronic form and thus the pedagogical process was facilitated for students. This method of visualization significant supports education. As part of increasing the quality of the educational process through augmented reality techniques, the study is more interesting and focuses mainly on the development and creation of conditions for the use of such technologies in technical practice
