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.

Anyone have any optimized FBX samples to share?

I've converted a few models but don't have many on hand with the materials and textures optimized to show up in the viewer. Models look good but are all matte white. Anyone have any optimized demo models they can point to? Examples that map to various industries would be really interesting (e.g. medical equipment for healthcare, architectural models, machine parts for manufacturing, etc.) Thanks!

    Not necessarily optimized for HoloLens but a good source of 3D models is
    3D Warehouse which according to last weeks announcement is also going to be partnering with the new Remix3D.com (requires Edge generation browser) site that Microsoft announced last week as part of the Windows 10 Creators Update announcements.

  • Thanks for the pointer. I'll explore a bit and see if I can find some good ones that show up with color/texture. If anyone else finds some good ones there, let me know. Thanks!
