The purpose of the article is to introduce possibilities of manufacturing process by using special virtual tools from scientific field named augmented reality (AR) and their implementation on the real example from pruduct manufacturing area. After the introduction which sketch basic information about this mentioned scientific area of augmnted reality aided manufacturing, the first point quickly provides view on the current situation in AR of manufacturing processes. The following step is
more » ... d on explanation of main philosophy of AR in order to apply their in the particular applications. The last part of article observes real examples of possibilities to create AR, not only by commercial software but also by virtual environment which is offered by open source platform. All these mentioned possibilities and examples are implemented in the special virtual environment of the AR, where users can see not only visual information about an exact manufacturing process but also necessary text and audio information about workplaces, parts, work conditions etc.
