Installation and Prerequisites
The app is available only for the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation) and the iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation) with the LiDAR sensors. Please refer to the Recommended Devices for the latest list of supported devices and alternatives.
Get the application from our public TestFlight link.
In order to create Area Targets, you will need your Vuforia Developer login credentials. If you do not yet have an account, you can sign up in the Vuforia Developer Portal, and the supporting guide can be found here.
Your Vuforia Developer account is linked to the quota of Area Targets you can create.
NOTE: By default, you start with a quota of 10 Area Target generations. However, more can be obtained through our licensing options. If you have generated Area Targets before with your Vuforia Developer account in the Area Target Generator, that remaining quota will be your starting point and displayed in the app while creating a new Area Target.
The iPad Pro LiDAR Scanning feature currently supports scanning smaller spaces up to 50 m2 or 500 sq. ft. We recommend to only scan indoors and minimize incoming natural light from windows. For a full list of recommendations, please see Best Practices for Preparing and Scanning an Environment.
Creating Area Targets
- When you first create an Area Target, you will be prompted to login with your Vuforia Developer Credentials. Logging in can only be accomplished if you have Internet access. You can store your credentials in the OS keychain by checking the Remember me box.
NOTE: You need Internet access throughout the generation of new Area Targets.
