VuMark Failure - what can i do?

August 1, 2017 - 4:20am #1


i tried to make a vumark now for a whole day. I tried different variants but nothing is working. i want to create a symmetric mark which is similar to the one on the tutorial page. Im wondering why the hell there is no download for the source pictures shown on the website. this would make life so much easier.

Every time i create a mark, the verifiere says OK but when i uploade it, its failing. Since i dont know the reason its failing i tried different variants, placing the border inside and dte chearing outside and the other way. i also dont know where the rotation indicator has to be placed.

Can someone give me a hint or help me? I uploaded the svg - renamed it to zip

Hello DichterDichter,

Apologies for the inconvenience. We will continue to improve the VuMark Design 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."
