Fetching a 3d object with a REST api call

I'm developing an app to test on hololens emulator in which I should be able to do a REST webservice call to an endpoint on a server , with a simple json input and fetch a 3d object in response , to place it in the field of view. How can this be achieved? Your valuable inputs/pointers/example codes to do this webservice call are highly appreciated!!


  • What are you developing in Unity? What sort of model format do you want to get? Should all be simple, just need to rebuild the model inside of your app. If unity, is a case of just creating a mesh, and applying the verts, tris etc, and applying materials to the model.

    Then placing in the world.
