Augmented reality (AR) technologies present immense potential for the design and manufacturing communities. However, coordinating traditional engineering data representations into AR systems without loss of context and information remains a challenge. A major barrier is the lack of interoperability between manufacturing-specific data models and AR-capable data representations. In response, we present a pipeline for porting standards-based Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) with three-dimensional (3D) model data into an AR scene. We demonstrate our pipeline by interacting with annotated parts while continuously tracking their pose and orientation. Our work provides insight on how to address fundamental issues related to interoperability between domain-specific models and AR systems.
