Using the SDK

A description of the files and methods of our Swift SDK.


Defines a class “Echo3D” that uses various methods in conjunction to SceneKit that communicate with the echo3D servers.
The following methods are Universal for Usage in iOS development:
  • queryDatabase()
  • parseDatabse()
  • parseEntry()
  • getEntries()
The following methods load models from your echo3D project into a scene:
  • loadSceneAtIndex()
  • loadSceneFromFilename()
  • loadSceneFromEntryID()
  • loadNodeFromIndex()
  • loadAllNode()
Customize implementation in a non-AR capacity by using the first list of functions to access and work with assets stored on echo3D.


each asset stored on echo3D servers is an “entry”. This file constructs a class with attributes and files relevant to accessing and working with each entry / file.


This file supports constructing an AR scene using SceneKit that is populated by files / models / entries stored on echo3D.
If you are not intending to construct an AR application, this file can be ignored / removed from your project.


Applies changes made to an asset's metadata via the echo3D console to assets in your scene at runtime.
