A Guide to the Fologram Tutorials - What to Try First

There are a lot of tutorials and examples on the forum and you can easily find the latest tools and grasshopper definitions at the top of the list. We’ve put together a list of fundamental topics and core turorials that should be reviewed before going through project-based examples and shared them in a sticky post here so they are always easy to find. Try going through these in order:

Synchronising Geometry:

  1. Synchronizing Geometry in Grasshopper
    This basic example shows how to use the Synchronize Object component.

  2. Synchronizing Parameters
    How to stream grasshopper parameters to your mobile phone or HoloLens.

  3. Using sliders, toggles, buttons and value lists
    Examples of different synchronized parameters.

  4. Interactive Synchronized objects
    How to make grasshopper geometry interactive

  5. Working with interactive geometry in parametric models
    How to combine these other 4 examples to start to build more powerful interactive tools.

  6. Apply basic materials and textures to geometries
    How to apply materials in Fologram with the Sync Object component.

  7. Parametrically assigning materials to synchronised geometries
    How to override a Sync Object material with custom parametric inputs.

  8. Parametrically assigning transformations to synchronised geometries
    Use the Assign Transform component to apply parametric transformations to Sync Objects.

  9. Sending text tags to a Fologram device
    Send text information to any connected device.

Tracking:

  1. Viewing connected devices
    View a list of devices connected to your Rhino session

  2. Track mobile and HoloLens device locations
    Track your devices with simple motion capture of your location and orientation.

  3. Track pointer information
    Track the pointers in your device as Line, Vector or Point data in Grasshopper

  4. Live track markers
    Track Aruco markers, Aruco Cubes and QR codes live in Fologram.

  5. Track a device’s current state
    Track presses, drags, holds and more live from your device.

  6. Hand tracking with the HoloLens 2
    Track point locations related to your hands from the HoloLens 2.

  7. Track your physical environment
    Create a low resolution 3D mesh of your physical surroundings.

  8. Track device taps on geometries
    Tap which devices have recently tapped different geoemtries.

  9. Track parameter changes from devices
    Track which device recently changed a synchronised parameter.

Flow:

  1. Create a counting component
    Use Fologram’s ‘Counter’ component to output an automatically increasing value.

  2. Control parts of your definition with the State Gate
    Explore different applications for the State Gate component to give you greater interactive control over your MR applications

  3. The basics of Global Variables
    Learn the basics of Global Variables and how they might be applied
