Spatial Mapping

How to do spatial mapping?


  • In the Hologram 100 tutorial, I could export the Visual Studio solution. I could not proceed to Hologram 230. Any help will be appreciated.

    You can download the Visual Studio solution for the 230 tutorial from the page I linked above. Here's the link for the solution directly. Hope this works

  • There was no .sln file. I created one using Unity from the completed subfolder. When I try to load the created .sln, I get the message as "One or more projects in the solution were not loaded properly. Please see the output window for more detail"

  • Here is the output window "C:\HolographicAcademy-Holograms-230-SpatialMapping\Completed\Planetarium\Planetarium.CSharp.csproj : error : The project file 'C\HolographicAcademy-Holograms-230-SpatialMapping\Completed\Planetarium\Planetarium.CSharp.csproj' cannot be opened.

    The project type is not supported by this installation.
    I am going to check the Planetarium.CSharp.csproj

    Any idea?

  • Step 1: opened Planetrium project in Unity 5.4.0b18-HTP
    Step 2: Created .sln file according to the tutorial
    Step 3: Could not open the Planetarium.sln created by Unity.
    Step 4: Opened the Planetarium.CSharp.csproj file
    Step 5: build solution
    Step 6: Attach to Unity and Play - message - "Attach Unity Instance"

    Could not deploy.

    Any help will be appreciated.

  • In Holograms-230 I am stuck in Part 1 after "Change the Platform to x86.". Could not go to Part 2.

    I need some more help.

  • Installed everything in visual studio as per instruction. I have community edition. I cannot open the .sln file. It still gives error as " C:\HolographicAcademy-Holograms-230-SpatialMapping\planet\planet.CSharp.csproj : error : The project file 'C:\HolographicAcademy-Holograms-230-SpatialMapping\planet\planet.CSharp.csproj' cannot be opened.

    The project type is not supported by this installation.

    The "planet.CSharp.csproj" is there and it can be opened.

    Help needed.

    @Balbul_Saha I had to install Remote Tools for Visual Studio 2015 to get around this, see if it helps.
