On site model help

Hi there,
Very new to fologram and just testing if it’s right for our company. we are hoping to be able to take large but very basic models made in rhino of bike tracks and position them onsite so we can show the clients what they look like and how they fit the site.
Issue I’m having is the model wants to move around when we move around it instead of staying in a fixed location. Any help to prevent this would be awesome.

Hi Derek,

You can always use QR code to anchor your model in place. I will attached a link below. And just beware that you should have even lighting in your space. If you have poor lighting in your environment you virtual model will tend to drift a bit. Hope this helps.

Hi Derek,

Sounds like a pretty interesting project. Is this for an art piece?

I would second Loy’s suggestion of using a FologramQR code to locate the model.

Are you using a mobile phone or the HoloLens?

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly will try it out and see if that helps.

Nah it’s for work. We build bike tracks and are always looking at ways to be able to show the customer what it’s going to look like in a better way.
So I’m playing with Fologram to see if it will do what we want it to do.

Hi Derek,

Ah, I understand now for some reason I thought you were making something more like Ai Wei Wei https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1WHAR_en-GBAU929AU929&q=ai+wei+wei+bike&tbm=isch&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjYt6Cmh7WAAxWj6jgGHco1Bs8Q0pQJegQIDBAB&biw=2560&bih=1315&dpr=1

One QR code is going to be OK for locating the digital model in the right place on site and viewing it from near the QR code (within 4m / 10’). If you want to do a site walk along the length of the track you will probably find that the model drifts around a lot - if that is the case let us know and we can give you a beta version of the new app to try.
