Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Spatial Mapping Mesh is strange

Hi, I used SpatialMapping in HoloToolkit.
I scanned the room and saved it.
Then get .room file at device portal and convert to .obj file.
However When I import the obj file in unity editor, the file is very strange.
I don't know why this shape is strange.
I attached other picture in device portal 3D view. two models are made at same place.
Should I change some option in unity editor?

Please help me.
Thank you in advance!


  • Hey @kgil ,
    that indeed looks strange. Have you tried zooming out? Or double-clicking the GameObject?
    To help us trying to reproduce: What exactly are the steps you followed to download and import the mesh?

  • Hi @pstueven , Thank you for your response.
    I tried zooming out and double-clicking the object. But It was still strange.
    making mesh and importing step as follows:
    1. In Unity, I import HoloToolKit and load Scene ''SaveSpatialMapping"
    2. Make UI button for save room file.
    3. Build and Start app. after scanning the room, I click the button and room file is saved.
    4. I download the room file at Device Portal - File Explorer - RoamingState folder.
    5. Export .room to .obj file at Unity Editor.
    6. In Unity, import the obj file(mesh)

    I Think that plane made automatically. there are many strange planes in mesh. However I didn't use SpatialUnderstanding.
