craftguide is the only virtual assistant for machine-related tasks that works across mobile and VR systems. It overlays accurate 3D representations of real machines and plants with simple step-by-step instructions. These can be displayed on smartphones and tablets to guide users directly at the machine, or in virtual reality to train them in a controlled, location independent environment.

Troubleshooting and rectification
craftguide’s mobile and VR tutorials are created in close collaboration with machine and plant manufacturers, as well as specialists in education and the skilled crafts. Manufacturers’ original 3D models are stripped of IP-critical data and combined with workflow information based on official instruction manuals and curricula. The result is highly relevant tutorial content that serves the best interests of all parties involved.
Once a machine or plant has been added to craftguide, new tutorials can easily be created for it in a two-stage process: First, a user documents the new workflow in a video that meets craftguide’s tutorial creation guidelines. This is reviewed by our in-house experts and converted into a set of instructions, which is then combined with the existing 3D model into a new tutorial for mobile and VR devices.
Step 1: Tag
Indicate the relevant object in its initial state by pointing the camera at it.
Step 2: Act

Step 3: Show
Keep pointing the camera at the object to show the desired outcome.
