Reusable model 1

Reusable Model made with AR.js and Glitch.com

With this example, you’ll be able to dive into code, don’t be afraid!

Using a cámera and a marker that can be printed or shown with another screen, you will be able to see something like this:

Captura de pantalla 2020-06-11 a las 18.54.46 (2)

Using the next link you may experience this example and the code:

https://glitch.com/~marker-based-ar-dimpa

The website will ask you to show your camera, once you accept, you should see your device camera. To see the 3d Object (a green box by default) you have to show this marker called “kanji” to the camera:

Reusable model 2

This time we are going to create a learning AR content in Assemblr, showing the parts of an electric guitar and how to tune it.

To do that we’re using this 3D object from Sketchfab. You can make your own content downloading 3d Models and place them in the real world
