Vuforia Tools and Test App Release Notes

This page contains release notes to all desktop and mobile tools, and pre-built Vuforia apps

Vuforia Engine v9.5.4

 

Bugfixes / Features 

 

Model Target Generator

  • The Model Target Generator tool has been updated with a tabbed user interface that will guide through each step of configuring a Model Target.
  • Fixed an issue when creating Model Target datasets from CAD models that reference non-existing external non-texture files.

Model Target Test App

N/A

Area Target Generator

  • Area Target Generator (ATG) can now create Area Targets that cover larger areas. If the target is very large, then it will be necessary to provide an external position to bootstrap detection of the target. See the External Prior section in Area Target API Overview article for more details. As a side effect of the changes to support larger areas, Area Targets created with the SDK 9.5 version of the ATG or Area Target Creator will not be compatible with older Vuforia SDK versions. Targets created with the ATG or Vuforia Area Target Creator from SDK 9.4 and below are still compatible with the Vuforia Engine SDK 9.5.

Known Issues

 

Model Target Generator

  • If a glTF 2.0 file is used as an input to the MTG that uses UNSIGNED_BYTE for indices, the resulting datasets may not work in Vuforia Engine.
  • In some rare cases, editing Advanced Views can result in the bounding box to be always rendered and break creation of new views. In that case, please close and re-open the project to resolve the issue.
  • Currently, the macOS version of the Model Target Generator does not support loading STEP (.stp) files.
  • Failed trainings can be caused by an invalid distance value entry.
  • The 'Last Modified' date for a Model Target might display different values in the Model Targets list and on the Databases tab.
  • Running Model Target Generator on a virtual machine is not supported.
  • The Model Target Generator does not support network drives not mapped to a local drive letter.

Model Target Test App

  • Apps may experience long dataset loading times and/or run out of memory if Advanced Model Target databases with more than 10 trained models are used. The exact number of supported targets is dependent on model size and complexity as well as the device that is being used.

Area Target Generator

  • The Area Target Generator may get stuck if the network connection fails during Area Target generation. In cases where target generation does not continue when the network connection resumes, press "Cancel" to get back to the main window and run target generation once more.

Bugfixes / Features 

 

Model Target Generator

  • The Model Target Generator now supports automatic coloring of model parts to improve recognition and tracking by highlighting edges. For models without different colors, this is suggested on import. For other models, this can be applied in the Model Attributes tab. See Automatic Coloring of Model Targets for more information.
  • When training Advanced Model Targets, the Model Appearance can now be selected in the Start Training dialog after selecting Model Targets. Depending on your target properties, an Appearance Mode may be suggested or may not be available. See the Advanced Model Target Databases for additional information
