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.
Place Canvas in Mesh
I am currently building a HoloLens project where I need to place a Canvas at a fixed static position. I already read some similar posts, but none of them helped me succeed.
My approach would be to save the mesh of the room via the Device Portal, upload the .obj file into unity and then try to position my canvas according to this later on with a worldanchor. Then i would add some finetuning to place my canvas accordingly.
Unfortunately it did not work until now.
So my question is, is this even possible with my approach?
Basically my application would need some kind of calibration, but I prefer not to use Vuforia and I cannot get the PosterCalibrationSample running.
Or are there any other possibilities you would suggest?
