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.

Placing 3d enviroment in your real enviroment

Hello, everybody,
I need help with this question.

I have a 3D model of my office in fbx. OK!
What I want to get is the following:
For example ,I go anywhere in my office, I put the Hololens, I start the app, and this app has to automatically place the 3D office model in the real office (they have to be overlaped).

Then I'd like to add chekpoints and objects for many office areas.

Is it possible to do this?

Thank you!


  • @gomes welcome to the brave new world of spatial computing. Yes this is possible, but to decide which solution to use depends on your use case. If office is small enough, you can have persistant world anchors and use their positions to align the model office in all three axis. But to set it up you'll need to mark the same points in real life and in virtual model. Again few options for you, you can manually align them visually but dragging and saving the location in both worlds. Or you can use Vuforia markers in real world to find the point in virtual world.

    This can be long discussion, so i'll leave you with something to think about. Essentially you want a way to find and mark the same location in the model and the real world.

  • @gomes Did you have any luck with this? I have some limited luck with the Poster calibration in the Companion Kit but it is always a few centimeters off and no manual adjustment is allowed :(
