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.

Why can some objects be resized, rotated and scaled on HoloLens and others cannot?

edited November 2018 in Questions And Answers

Hello everyone I am very new to c# and mixed reality. I have had a chance to borrow the HoloLens from a programmer and started doing basic tutorials.

In this tutorial:

The used materials:

Are easily resizable and rotatable. However when I do everything exactly the same with this free 3D car:

The car never moves or is responsive at all.

Can someone tell me if it is even possible to rotate and rescale that model or is that only on certain 3D models and this one is just bad.

Thank you



  • Hi - one thought here is that perhaps your models don't have colliders on them which let the interaction system see them as something to interact with (by casting a ray which needs to hit something). Is there any possibility that you're missing colliders?

  • Yes I was missing Mesh Collider, Mesh Render, and Box Collider and when I added all that it worked. Thank you
