How to Tap to Place like Hologram 101 by Mixed Reality tool kit

Hello, I am super beginner about Hololens.
I did Academy - Hologram 101.

I want to add a Tap to Place function to my original model like Hologram 101 - Spacial Mapping.

I am confusing that Tap to Place function by Hologram 101 and Hologram 203 is different.
Additionally, both are not implemented by Mixed Reality toolkit - Unity.

I understood that I should use Mixed reality toolkit to develop my new app.
How can I use Mixed reality tool kit to do a "Tap to Place" ?
Is there any tutorials by using Mixed Reality toolkit??

Maybe it is too beginner question, but I am really confusing.

  • @dbarrett I did it!! You are a super hero for me!
    Then, How did you find the component? Is there any API documentation for MRTK ?
    I can't find them.
    And still, I have some problem.

    1. The object can place in everywhere. But I want to place the object stick to the Spatial Mapping.
    2. I set object's rotation by transform component, however, when I tap the object, it turns back to the default.

    This screenshot below is my current settings for the target gameobject.
    I cannot understand how the settings will behave. Maybe some documents describing these settings...?

  • @dbarrett Thank you so much! Your suggestions were perfect.
    I could do everything!
