Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

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.

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, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.


What is the best way to measure/calculate the accuracy of the generated holographic compared to a real object?

For example, If I wanted to map a real life cube by adding a 'skin' or 'layer' over the top- what would be the difference in size between the actual cube and the augmented reality recreation of the cube?

Is there a tolerance?

Asking as involved in a project exploring the potential use in surgery.




  • The size will be about right, but the positioning will be only accurate to 1-2cm and best due to the way the HoloLens spatial mapping and positioning works. in order to be more accurate you will need additional devices such as the following from Scopis (https://holographic.scopis.com/)
