Target Manager Width/Length/Height Input Size - Multimarker

April 25, 2013 - 8:46pm #1



I am really confused about what units I should input for the dimensions of the images in my multimarker, in the Target Manager interface. I am unable to get a custom multimarker to work properly (no detection at all).

Can someone please explain what the width, height, and length parameters are in the Target manager for creating a multimarker of set dimensions? 

Ex: I have a 3 inch by 3 inch by 1.3 inch cuboid that I would like to augment, but I am confused as to how to input the proper dimensions for each side of object.

I tried using the original vuforia (flakesbox) images with some of my own images as a combination setup, but my AR application (I am using Unity iOS) would not detect any of the sides of the image. 

Even when I use the Vuforia Flakes images on their own without my own images, but through a multimarker that I created using the target manager, the AR application is unable to detect them. If I use the demo Unity package with the multimarker scene that comes preloaded, it works... 

I have been trying for weeks now, and I still haven't been able to get it to work properly. Can someone please tell me how to create a multimarker from start to finish, on the Unity AR platform for iOS. A detailed response will be greatly appreciated! :)

Thank you so much!

Target Manager Width/Length/Height Input Size - Multimarker

From 3inch x 3inch x 1.3inch, you asked him to convert it to mm.

But your inputs Width: 433.0 Height: 693.0 Length: 181.0 don't directly convert into his dimensions.

What am I missing here?

And could you also tell me the dimensions of a soda can, like the one used in the Sample Cylindrical Target app?

My suggestion is to use millimetres.  

In my experience when units are quite small e.g. single digits it can adversely affect detection.

Regarding the dimensions specifically, here are the dimensions I used when uploading a multi target that modelled a packet of cigarettes:

Width: 433.0 Height: 693.0 Length: 181.0

So, hopefully form this you can work out which side needs to be which.

Hope this can work for you.
