Add a Multi-Target (Cuboid) to a Database
1. Click Add Target. The Add New Target dialog opens.
2. Type a unique name for the target in the Target Name field.
- The name must be unique within this device target database.
- The name should describe the image.
- The name can be changed later.
- The name can only include letters, numbers, and the underscore character _ .
3. Select Cube as the Target Type.
4. Enter the Width of the cube target in scene units.
NOTE: The width parameter is very important, as the pose information returned during tracking will be in the same scale. For example, if your cube target is 16 units wide, moving the camera from the left border of the target to the right border of the target will change the returned position by 16 units along the given axis. Enter the dimension of your target in the same scene unit as your augmentation. The size of the target shall be relative to the size of the augmented virtual content.
5. Click Add. A new target container is shown on the list of targets.
6. Click the new target container. A window opens with an empty target container with the specified dimensions. There is a 3D representation on the left and a layout view on the right.
7. In the 3D representation, click one of the links (e.g. Upload Front) on the layout view.
8. Browse to and select the image file that you want to place on that surface. The file must be 8 or 24-bit PNG or JPG. A JPG file must be RGB or greyscale. Maximum image file size is 2.25MB.
9. Click Open. A progress indicator will notify you when the upload is complete.
NOTE: The image file must be square. If the aspect ratio is not appropriate, a message indicates the expected aspect ratio of 1:1. Do not use the same image on multiple sides as it can create false information upon detection.
13. Repeat steps 9 -11 for each of the other surfaces of the cube target. Use the breadcrumbs on the page to return to the list of targets for this database.
NOTE: You do not have to upload all six parts, however there must be at least two surfaces associated with images before you can download a device target database that includes this multi-target.
