Three-dimensional models of objects and their creation process are central for a variety of applications in Augmented Reality. In this article, we present a system that is designed for in-situ modeling using interactive techniques for two generic versions of handheld devices equipped with cameras. The system allows online building of 3D wireframe models through a combination of user interaction and automated methods. In particular, we concentrate in rigorous evaluation of the two devices and interaction methods in the context of 3D feature selection. We present the key components of our system, discuss our findings and results and identify design recommendations.
