Snap a cube object to a real cube?

October 7, 2019 - 4:08pm #1

There's a rack and I drew a virtual rack object (actually just a cube) in 1:1 scale. I want my virtual rack to be placed so that the virtual rack and real rack match exactly. I cannot simply place the virtual rack on the ground because the real rack has adjustable bolts under it to adjust its height and I cannot measure this beforehand. I hope my virtual cube and the real cube can be aligned by the top.

I think there must be a way to snap the virtual rack against the edges and corners but no idea how.

Thanks for replying. To use image targeting, we have to use one image per rack, right? We have a few thousand racks so this will be a tedious work. Knowing that there're only two types of racks, do you think if there's a way to simplify this?

Hi,

Model target feature will not work with simple 3d cad models like cubes. The 3d model needs to have distinct feature in order to work. More info here: https://library.vuforia.com/features/objects/model-targets.html

I believe the simplest solution in your case without having the 3d model/cad design of the object that you want to augment, would be to use image target feature.

Thank you.
