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.

Object scale in Hololens not matching real world scale, again


I've already posted an issue here concerning the object scale not matching the real world scale. That particular issue was closed due to there actually being a discrepancy between the model and the real world object.

However, further tests with bigger objects revealed that even after measuring, the scale still doesn't match, it just is less noticeable with smaller objects. I measured a table for testing and found the same thing. Even after calibrating my display, it seemed to be short a few centimeters.

I've found some posts here and here which pretty much exhibits the same issue I'm having.

Is there anything I can do about this? How do I adjust for that issue/circumvent it?

  • This happens for me too, the hologram is placed correctly, and the hologram scale is not changed in any of the script in the program (I've also used a floating text with the object scale to be shure about that).
    The real world object is about 7 cm smaller than the 3d model in the hololens I use, in another hololens is 7 cm longer, it seems like a sensor issue, also because from the rs4 the sensor tuning utility is not anymore available in favor of automatic sensor tuning, in fact it happened that one time the hologram fitted the real object perfectly, and after about 20 mins, without changing anything, the hologram was of different size
