Saving AR experiences in location requires real-world anchor points, that can be used to accurately save 3d models in place. From Arki 6.2 we introduce Anchor, which allows you to choose real-world feature points that you can use as a reference for saving and sharing location-specific AR experiences.
Save 3d models at outside locations
Use distinct elements in the world, such as roadsigns, and statues to anchor 3d models in the exact location for 1:1 viewing.
The video shows how you can save 3d models accurately in location by using a road sign as a static anchor point. The app stores features of the road sign during the save process, and will load the model in relation to this road sign during load.
For best performance, scan the outdoor environment or object slowly during save, to get the maximum detail and accuracy of the environment. Scan and save an area that is at least 1 metre square and has enough 3d detail, so that the app can store enough feature points.
Save 3d models at inside locations
Anchor 3d models to internal environments, and objects.
The anchor tool, lets you save 3d models to any static 3d object or internal environment.
The video shows how to save a model in place, in relation to multiple 3d physical object in the world.
For best performance, scan and save an area that is at least 1metre square and has enough 3d detail, so that the app can store enough feature points. When loading the model in place, it is important that the area that is being scanned does not differentiate from the original saved anchor.
Save 3d model on top of 2d images.
Anchor 3d models to printed 2d images and floorpans, to create interactive presentations.
The video shows how to save a model in place using a printed 2d image as an anchor.
For best performance, scan the image in detail during the save process, so that the app can pickup enough feature points about the image, and accurately map the model during loading.
