How to launch a 3D hologram from 2D UWP App in Hololens?

I am Developing one UWP application in which I have to show first 2D view when application is launched in hololens . Then from that 2D view I have to switch to 3D holographic app. Basically I want to launch a hologram from 2D app. (For. example list of multiple 3D holograms and select one of it)

I followed this link https://mtaulty.com/2016/10/25/windows-10-uwp-hololens-and-switching-2d3d-views/ . How this can be done ?


  • Hi @yash_vasa ,

    Awesome question! Instead of a UWP D3D Unity Project, you would start with a XAML Unity Project. This will let you have some 2D capabilities. Then follow this blog post by Jonathan Antoine to get your project the rest of the way.

  • Since Unity has the option "XRSettings Mixed Reality" I think this does not work anymore. At least I am experiencing this problem...
