Ratings and Reviews
This App is Going Places
I work in a high end residential architecture firm and I am very excited to see where this app goes. Not everyone can understand 2D drawings and 3D prints can take forever. I see this as a staple for early SD/DD client presentations. This app allows you to upload your 3D model directly. Other apps require you to submit your model to them and they charge a fee and need a week or so to “prepare the model.” I can make design changes, save as an .fbx and have my AR model ready to go in minutes. It may have a simple feel, but better to start small and grow more complicated as AR begins to take off in the coming years. Looking forward to the updates the team has in store...
Does not work on iPad Air2
On Air2 I just see black screen. Says it loading model. Then again black screen.

Im afraid ARki is only supported on Ipad pro or Ipad (2017 or newer)
The worst AR app out there, try different ones and you’ll see!
