Reviews

  • Aidan WolfI make apps.
    Pros: 

    Lots of amazing 3D content

    Cons: 

    Tracking is extremely floaty

    Models take a while to load

    No use case

    Sketchfab AR could be amazing but right now it's lacking features and is poorly implemented. It's a 10x better experience using their traditional native 2D model viewer.

    Aidan Wolf has used this product for one day.
  • Pros: 

    ease of use

    Cons: 

    not really

    best and easiest solution for easy 3d sharing in AR

    Corentin Metgy has used this product for one year.

Hi ProductHunt! Happy to finally unveil Sketchfab AR for iOS today. Thanks to ARKit, we are able to bring AR support to the entire Sketchfab library: almost 2 million things you can bring into the real world with augmented reality. Besides browsing great content from the community, the other cool part about this feature is that it lets you publish any 3D file to AR with no code. Simply upload it to sketchfab.com, and it will show up instantly in the app, and be available in 3D, VR or AR. Quick note on the tech side: this is done through a WebView in a native app, all rendered through WebGL. Means you get to keep the same rendering as in Sketchfab, and that you don't need to download gigs of data to your phone :) Happy to answer any question you may have, and if you shoot cool videos you can share them under the hashtag #madewithSketchfab. Thanks for the support! ps: android support via ARcore coming soon.

@albn Hey there! Do you guys currently support an API that lets you build AR apps using access to the models in your library as potential models for use in 3rd party apps? Also great library, I'm checking it out now!

This is absolutely amazing. I've been 3d scanning my parents' house since they're moving to a new place soon and have used this to walk around in their house, while in the house. Here's @albn trying it with my 3d scan in AR: https://twitter.com/albn/status/... It's a WebView in an app, which is even more remarkable. There is still a slight delay with big models, but if that's optimized, this will be lovely. Sketchfab already has a giant directory of 3d models, both objects, characters, to entire VR worlds. I'm a really big fan to see all that move into mixed reality now.

This should really help to open people's minds about what's possible AND feasible in the short term through AR. It really helps me think of the possibilities, thanks!
