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.

What is the best way to do image registration within Hololens for real world objects?

I am fairly new to HoloLens development and am attempting to overlay a 3D model into a real world object. What would be the best way to do the same. I have found a video on youtube doing a similar(fairly more complex) application of the same using Kinect It would be great to receive some information regarding what to look into to achieve the same in Hololens.

    Hololens don't works well with 3D Object recognition. It is not used even in Vuforia presentations. They use only ImageRecognition and Vumark Recognition.
    For 3D object the hololens is too slow.

    Thank you for the response. In case 3D object recognition is not a strength of Hololens, would there be methods available in the toolkit to do the model placement based on image registration techniques in the same?
