In just four steps you will create your first AR and VR Space
We will start with a basic Space with one 3D object. You will learn the basics of Fectar Studio (without any coding). And with those basic steps, you can add any content you like. After this, you can try out more tutorials.
What you need:
- Fectar app (free download for Android and iOS read more)
- Account in Fectar Studio (apply for 14 days free trial here)
Step 1: Create New Space
Log in in Fectar Studio and click on the red button 'Create new space'
Now you can choose between an Empty Space or a template.
In this tutorial, we will start with an Empty Space.
Now choose a name for your first Space, for example, 'My First Space'. You can always change this. And then click on 'Add'.
And there you have it: your first Space:
Step 2: Add Content, a 3D model.
Because we started with an empty Space, there is still no content in your Space. Let's add a 3D object.
Click on 'My First Space' to go to the next screen:
Click on 'New Spot'
You get an overview of all the different types of content you can add to your Space.
Click on '3D Models'.
Now select GLTF, a 3D format for AR- and VR-friendly 3D models.
The Spot for a GLTF 3D Model is now available in your Space.
Click on 'Choose your GLTF File'.
You will now see the File Manager on your screen.
Click on 'Free Content'.
Scroll down for 'Fectar Assets' and select the 'Lighthouse'.
You have added the Lighthouse to your Space.
Now fill in '125' for the height of the Lighthouse.
Now click on the 'Save' button
Your Space is now ready to be published.
Step 3: Publish your Space
Click on the 'Publish' Tab.
You will now see the 'Publish Tab'.
Click on 'Unlisted' to publish your Space without publicly sharing it with others.
Click on 'Save'.
Scroll down to the bottom of the 'Publish Tab' where you can find the unique QR Code of your Space.
Step 4: View your Space
Pick up your smartphone and open the Fectar App.
At the bottom of your screen, click on the 'Search Icon'.
Click on 'QR Code'.
The camera is now active on your smartphone.
Scan the QR Code of your Space on the Publish Tab from your screen by pointing your camera to the screen.
The Detail Page of your Space is now available in the Fectar App.
Click on 'View in AR' to see your creation!
Congratulation, you are now a true AR Creator!
