To display Augmented Reality content often a so-called marker is used to specify location and size of the 3D model to display. A marker is a printed out pattern with a high contrast to make it detectable for the system.
Example of a marker
You can get our marker here.
The size of the print defines the size of the displayed model - that means the larger you print the marker the larger the model will be displayed so it is important to make sure you choose an appropriate size.
Another thing to take care of is to make sure the print is not distorted otherwise it might not be detected.
Once you have printed the marker, place it on a table or on the floor and point your device's camera at it.
If there is a problem displaying your model, try the following:
- Check that the room is bright enough.
- Do not point the camera towards a light source.
- Hold the camera straight towards the marker.
- Hold the camera closer to the marker and slowly back away from the marker once you see the model.
- Hold the camera steady, only move the camera slowly.
- If you move the marker, do it slowly.
