In this guide (transcript of the video), I’ll show you how easy it is to use a ready-made template in vectary, modify it and export the 3D scene to USDZ file, so you can view it in Augmented reality on your ARKit-enabled device.
Here is the video that shows how this can be achieved step-by-step.
I’ve chosen the “responsive design” template, the first one on the list. A second later, the 3D scene is ready in the browser for me to work with.
In this particular template, I had four image placeholders. I’ve already made two images, one wide and the other one vertical to use with the 3D phone object.
I use the “replace image” button to load my images instead of the default ones, which are just for showing a blank screen. I made some little adjustments.
Once I was satisfied with how things look, I used the ‘Export’ feature to export the scene to a USDZ file, a file that AR Quick Look can recognize using support apps, like Safari, Messages, Mail, and others.
The export time varies based on the scene and settings. It didn’t take long and my USDZ file was ready.
Vectary notifies you via email when the file is ready. All you have to do is to click the link that email to get to the preview page. This is where you can download and view the content. Make sure you use Safari on an iOS 12 device. If you want to view the content in AR, make sure you have an ARKit-enabled device. I used my iPad tablet to view the content in AR.
This how simple it is to create, view and share 3D content and view it in AR using Vectary. you can use it for your website and social media. Definitely, my favorite 3D design tools so far when it comes to creating content and sharing it so it can view using Apple AR Quick Look.
I hope you find this useful. See you in the next guide.
