Frequently Asked Question

What is Assemblr

Assemblr is a content creation platform that facilitates you to create 3D contents which could be visualized in form of Augmented Reality! With Assemblr, you can create or visualize immersive 3D contents on your smartphone, or even import your own 3D models to Assemblr to be presented in real-life setting using AR. Our goal is to make AR accessible to everyone, everywhere!

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

AR is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on your view of the real world. Simply put, AR adds digital images to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone. It gives you an illusion as if they occupy the same space.

What’s the difference between Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality?

Unlike VR, which completely immerses you into a virtual environment, AR blends virtual content with objects in the real world. That’s why, AR is easier to integrate in your daily lives! We predict that AR will be the way most people access information in the future.

How do I install Assemblr?

Assemblr is available to download through App Store and Play Store.

Which operating systems and devices can I use Assemblr on?

Assemblr is compatible with mobile devices running at least iOS 9 (for Apple) or at least OS 5.0 Lollipop (for Android). For Android devices, you should also have at least 2 GB RAM and 5 MP camera.

Can I import custom 3D objects from 3D modeling softwares to Assemblr?

Yes, you can! With the help of Assemblr Studio, you are able to convert and optimize your custom 3D model (in .FBX format) to be directly transferred into Assemblr’s mobile app itself.

Can I export my projects from Assemblr into 3D models?

Yes, you can export your projects into FBX, STL, and GLB file formats using the Classic Editor. Tap on the menu on the top left of your editor, then tap ‘Export 3D’.

Why do my 3D objects sometimes disappear when viewed in AR mode?

Image recognition is an important part of Augmented Reality systems. Recent development of AR has led to markerless AR. This approach allows the use of any and all parts of your physical environment as the base for the placement of your 3D content. Simply put, you can place your 3D objects freely!

However, some older devices still need to identify visual markers in your environment first to place your creation. This is called marker-based AR. Instead of scanning the ground, these devices will look for a visual marker when you switch your Assemblr mode to AR. When your camera doesn’t detect the identified marker, for example when you pull your camera away from it, your object will disappear from the view.

What is Assemblr Studio?

Assemblr Studio is a desktop application which helps you import your custom 3D model from PC to be accessed in Assemblr’s mobile app. So it allows you to turn any 3D contents made in PC — be it lessons, various teaching materials, simulations, and more — into AR contents, which then could be presented in your classroom using only your smartphones
