As of June 27, 2018, Augment will no longer be supporting the plugins listed below.

While these plugins will continue to be available for download, users will no longer receive updates, technical support, or bug fixes. As an alternative, export your 3D models in the format recommended in the chart below for the best Augment experience.

You may also upload any of the following formats:
