Vuforia Tools and Test App Release Notes

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

Vuforia Engine v10.4.4

 

Bugfixes / Features 

 

Model Target Generator

  • Advanced Model Targets can now be trained before having to first generate a Model Target database.
  • An issue in the Model Target Generator where elevation ranges were sometimes calculated incorrectly for closeup views has been resolved.

Model Target Test App

  • The pop-up menus of line thickness and coloring may overlap each-other on Android phones. Please close them separately

Area Target Generator

  • The Area Target Generator now supports generation of datasets for improved robustness against changing lighting conditions. To leverage the benefits of the new technology you need to re-generate your Area Target datasets based on the original scan-data.
  • The Area Target Generator now produces the authoring artifact in 3DT format for all target sources.

Area Target Test App

N/A
Area Target Creator App
  • The Vuforia Area Target Creator app allows generating targets of past versions of the SDK. Please use the "Legacy Dataset" option if you are using SDK 10.3 or before for development.
  • Vuforia Area Target Creator app now produces the authoring artifact in 3DT format.
  • Entering the name of an existing target is prevented when starting a new scan, and therefore, generation no longer fails for Area Targets with identical names.

Known Issues

 

Model Target Generator

  • Resizing the MTG to a smaller size can cause some of the UI elements to no longer be visible and requiring the user to scroll inside the window.
  • Currently, the macOS version of the Model Target Generator does not support loading STEP (.stp) files.
  • The Model Target Generator leaves a dangling directory after a failed model import not allowing to use same name upon retry.
  • Failed trainings can be caused by 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.
  • Model Target Generator does not support network drives not mapped to a local drive letter.

Area Target Generator

  • The Area Target Generator may get stuck if the network connection fails during Area Target generation. In case 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.
  • Area Targets created prior to 9.7 or created with the Area Target Generator of earlier versions will not work out of the box with the Occlusion Mesh and Mesh Collider settings in Unity. See the Migration Guide for details and workaround

Vuforia Engine v10.0.12

 

Bugfixes / Features 

 

Model Target Generator

  • Model Target Simplification in the MTG is now available to all users, not just those with a paid Vuforia Engine license.
  • Model Target datasets generated with the Vuforia MTG version 10.0 are significantly smaller than before. Advanced Model Target datasets are reduced to approx. 50% of their previous size, while standard, untrained Model Targets will be reduced to about 20% or their previous dataset size. To benefit from these advantages use the latest Vuforia Engine SDK 10.0 in combination with targets generated with the MTG 10.0.
  • Fixed an issue in the Model Target Generator where non-meter models failed advanced training.
  • Fixed an issue in the Model Target Generator apparent during reopening a project with a running simplification.
  • Fixed an issue in the MTG where the export button for trained dataset was sometimes greyed out after successful download.
