This paper presents I-nteract, a cyber-physical system that enables real-time interaction with real and virtual objects in a mixed augmented reality environment to design 3D models for additive manufacturing. The system has been developed using mixed reality technologies such as HoloLens, for augmenting visual feedback, and haptic gloves, for augmenting haptic force feedback. The efficacy of the system has been demonstrated by generating 3D model using a novel scanning method to 3D print a customized orthopedic cast for human arm, by estimating spring rates of compression springs, and by simulating interaction with a virtual spring using hand.
