Getting your 3D designs into Augmented Reality is really the driver of immersive experiences that everyone is talking about. 3D models should be viewed in 3D and they definitely should be viewed in AR. Creating this with Vectary is very straightforward. We want to show you how, as well as drop some tips regarding object preparation.
Most likely, a scene is going to be populated with various objects and backgrounds. But, when creating an AR it is possible to focus only on one. To do that, we have to generate a separate AR file. The key here is to make the adjustments to the scene, but without affecting the AR model like in the embedded scene below:
Go to the properties menu and under advanced settings add Augmented reality. The AR file will be generated automatically. Once this is done, go back and unhide all the previously hidden objects. Share the project using the button in the top right corner. Then, on a mobile device, just press the AR icon to display it.
Please note: Scene effects will not change the look of the AR model. To be able to blend into the surrounding, the AR uses the light source of the environment that you see through the camera. That is the key factor here.
If you want to make changes to your AR file, or even select a different object from the scene, just go back and hide all of the objects you didn’t want to show, make changes or select a new object and re-generate the AR. Fast and easy and most importantly the viewers don’t have to download any other app. Just use the phone to view it.
