Object not recognized

Unity Editor

Hi Folks,

I have an issue with my ObjectTarget most probably because I set everything up correctly in Unity and added the license, in addition I imported the DB and Object Target. I want another 3d object to appear in place of this target when the application recognizes the object (looks like the attachment). 

I scanned an object with a not very good camera and got only 89 points - can it be because the object is not recognized or maybe I am making another mistake ? This is my first mini project so please be understanding.

I am using Vuforia version 9.8.11

Object not recognized

If you're trying to recognize that dark colored pawn, then I could see there would be challenges. The Object Target scanning process uses visual features from the exterior of the object to build a recognition database. The fact that the chess piece is dark, has limit visual features and is reflective (which can introduce 'false' visual features) will all work against it.

Please review this article for some tips on the best objects to scan: https://library.vuforia.com/features/objects/object-reco/supported-objects.html

Kind regards,
