AR camera can't target the object

February 19, 2020 - 1:07am #1

Hi everyone!

I have 3D model of my object, and I want to make AR application with Vuforia ModelTarget. I think, I did everything true. (https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/model-target-generator-user-guide.html)

Firstly I made one Guide View in MTG.  Then I add Vuforia to Unity, and I built application for Android. 

When I run app, it can understand 3D object, but when I change my position, it isn't working, AR camera is not moving I think.. I want to see my object 360. But I can only see my object with the position which I made in Guide View. 

Even on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCkueobt-yc he couldn't use truly, but the end of the video we can see good app working. But how, please? 

On the photo you can see in the app it's working, only one position, if I change my real position, it isn't working....

Thanks, that's good to know! I tried to model simple objects to begin with, thinking it'd be easier to do, but now I understand why it was harder to work with a microwave oven or a book rather than with a plastic tank model or a plant...

Thank you for response.

Okay, So is problem only the object? But firstly it understands object, then when I move the phone (or camera) my AR 3d object also moves. Why? Shouldn't it stay the same position, should it?

I tested it with HTC vive controllers also, just because it's unique object and I have CAD model of this controller. But same problem with this also.

May be I'm doing something wrong in Unity or Vuforia settings. 

I couldn't find good tutorial.

 

On the photo you can see HTC Vive Controller which I used for Tracked Object.

Hi,

The issue is related to the object. For Model Target to work properly the model should be feature rich, unfortunately a refrigerator is not feature rich object. It is mainly a cuboid.

More info here on best practices: https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/model-targets-supported-objects.html

Thank you.
