Vumark failed in Target Manager

June 15, 2017 - 3:57pm #1



I created a Vumark with a string value of max 20 characters in Illustrator. The Verify script passes but when I upload it to Target Manager it fails. Can someone help me figure out the problem?


Can I send the Illustrator project file to someone from support to look at it?

I figured it out just now.


I had a few bright elements set in the wrong position. How should I explain this?


Let's say we have 2 bright elements X and Y. There are also positions posX and posY on the Vumark where the elements X and Y are supposed to be. Well I made the error of putting X and Y in posX. So posX had two overlapping elements and posY was empty. Since these were both white on a white background it was very difficult to notice. And the script didn't really check if the positions of bright elements overlap.


So thank you for showing interest and I hope this helps someone in the future :)


I will post again if I run into problems.


Kind regards

The Border and Cear Space should be compound paths. I sent you both files via a PM, please respond soon :)

Apologies for the inconvenience. We are actively working on VuMark Design tool improvements to help identify failures before uploading to the portal.

In the meantime, please also review the following information provided in the VuMark Design Guide, which is packaged with the VuMark Designer tool: https://developer.vuforia.com/downloads/tool. There are hints contained within that must be followed closely to insure successful processing by the Target Manager.

Section 5.6.2:

"Both the Border and Clear Space must be compound paths."

"If you’ve designed your Border or Clear Space with a path that has a simple stroke width, you can use Illustrator’s “Object->Expand…” or “Object->Expand Appearance” to convert it to a compound path. Any “Appearance Attributes” that are assigned to your shapes, paths, or objects in your VuMark must be removed prior to exporting as an SVG."

"You can use the Appearance Panel’s menu option “Reduce to Basic Appearance” to remove the Appearance Attributes."

If you can confirm that both the border and clear space are compound paths, then please provide your AI and SVG file here or via PM.
