Once you have started AR3S access the "Main" menu and go to "Tools", an array of features will be displayed, from which you can choose from.

The "Exploded View" feature allows 3D objects to be disassembled down into their individual parts in a variety of levels on the X, Y and Z axes.

The "Measurements" feature allows to take measurements and determine angles by drawing measurement lines via "Air Tap" gesture. 

The "Cross Section" feature allows users to create intersection views of 3D objects. Different 3D shapes (cube, sphere, plane) can be combined to specifically make any components visible or invisible.

The "Hand Pose Capture" feature allows to take snapshots of the user's hands in order for displaying them as an object in the AR3S workspace.

The "Collision Detection" feature visualizes whether the user's hand is grabbing into the 3D model. This allows the user to check which components of the model are accessible in real life and where their hand could be blocked. 

The "Multimedia" feature allows the user to import PDFs and MP4 video files into their AR3S Workspace.
