Holograms and Targets
Learn more about 3D holograms, spatial targets, content entries, and content cards.
Holograms (a.k.a "the what") are projections of 3D content in the real world. These could be:
- 1.Model hologram: static or animated. File formats include
.dae, and more. We recommend using
.fbxwith the textures baked in.
- 2.Video hologram: regular or 360 degrees. File formats include
.mov, and more.
- 3.Image hologram: static or animated. File formats include
.svg, and more.
Targets (a.k.a "the where") are the real world places on which the 3D content appears. These could be:
- 1.Surface target: any surface. e.g., a floor, table, ground, wall, and more.
- 2.Location target: geographic location represented by name or latitude and longitude coordinates (e.g., New York, London, 40.713054 & -74.007228).
- 3.Image Target: static images or image trackers. Formats include
.jpg, and more or
A pair of a hologram and a target is referred to as a Content Entry, which has its own unique ID and is represented by a single Content Card in the Content page.
The Content page displays all models, images, and videos in the project as individual content cards.
Each card allows you to:
- 1.Preview the hologram
- 2.See the original file name
- 3.Review the target
- 4.Download different versions of the file by clicking on the buttons with the different format names
- 5.Delete the asset by clicking theicon
- 6.Copy a short shareable link to the 3D asset by clicking theicon
- 7.Add the asset to a folder by clicking theicon.
- 8.Get QR codes by clicking theicon to immediately see the hologram with your phone as described in "See it in AR". Here the QR codes acts as a way to direct viewers to 3D asset or serve as an image target
icon at the top left corner of any card prompts a dialog that allows to leave a comment on content for your team members to see. A
notification indicates that a comment is available.
arrow at the top right corner of any card will pull up metadata for that content entry. Here, you can add, delete, edit, upload, or download metadata for your content entry.
