Vuforia Desktop Tools

Area Target Generator


The Area Target Generator is a desktop application that allows you to create Area Targets from 3D-scans of an environment.

Area Targets can be generated from Matterport™ scanned spaces, from a previously created .3DT Space file, or from point clouds in E57 data format, collected with Leica or NavVis scanners.

The Model Target Generator is a desktop application that allows you to create Model Targets from pre-existing 3D models. The Model Target Generator supports popular formats including .obj, .fbx, .pvz, .stl, .igs, .dae, .stp, and .vrml

For special use cases, we also offer an offline Model Target Generator which can generate Model Targets without an internet connection. You must have a PREMIUM plan to use the offline tool. See Offline Model Target Generator for more information.
