Learn how to use Assemblr. From the most basic concept into more complicated topics.

F.A.Q.

What is Assemblr

Assemblr is a content creation platform that facilitates you to create 3D contents which could be visualized in form of Augmented Reality! With Assemblr, you can create or visualize immersive 3D contents on your smartphone, or even import your own 3D models to Assemblr to be presented in real-life setting using AR. Our goal is to make AR accessible to everyone, everywhere!

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

AR is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on your view of the real world. Simply put, AR adds digital images to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone. It gives you an illusion as if they occupy the same space.

What’s the difference between Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality?

Unlike VR, which completely immerses you into a virtual environment, AR blends virtual content with objects in the real world. That’s why, AR is easier to integrate in your daily lives! We predict that AR will be the way most people access information in the future.

How do I install Assemblr?

Assemblr is available to download through App Store and Play Store.

Which operating systems and devices can I use Assemblr on?

Assemblr is compatible with mobile devices running at least iOS 9 (for Apple) or at least OS 5.0 Lollipop (for Android). For Android devices, you should also have at least 2 GB RAM and 5 MP camera.

Is Assemblr free?

Assemblr is free to download, however we offer in-app purchases for some premade items in our library. Don’t worry if you need to save up, you can still import your own 3D object or even earn rewards from our competitions!

How can I build and augment my projects?

We have created a playlist of tutorials to help you tinker with Assemblr’s building tools for the first time. To augment your works, you just have to tap the AR mode button while on build mode. You’ll be asked to scan the ground, then you’re ready to go!

Can I import custom 3D objects from 3D modeling softwares to Assemblr?

Yes, you can! With the help of Assemblr Studio, you are able to convert and optimize your custom 3D model (in .FBX format) to be directly transferred into Assemblr’s mobile app itself.

Can I export my projects from Assemblr into 3D models?

This feature is still under development, so hopefully yes in the future!

Why do my 3D objects sometimes disappear when viewed in AR mode?

Image recognition is an important part of Augmented Reality systems. Recent development of AR has led to markerless AR. This approach allows the use of any and all parts of your physical environment as the base for the placement of your 3D content. Simply put, you can place your 3D objects freely!

However, some older devices still need to identify visual markers in your environment first to place your creation. This is called marker-based AR. Instead of scanning the ground, these devices will look for a visual marker when you switch your Assemblr mode to AR. When your camera doesn’t detect the identified marker, for example when you pull your camera away from it, your object will disappear from the view.

I use Android, why can’t I make markerless AR?

Currently, only a few of Android devices have supported markerless AR. To be able to use markerless AR, your Android device needs to have the following requirements:

- Android Version: 6.0 (Marshmallow) or newer
- IMU with Gyroscope Sensors
- Selective Image Stabilization

Can I share my project on social media?

Of course! We really encourage you to share your enthusiasm to your friends and family. When you publish your project, you will find the option to share your project directly to Facebook or Twitter.

Additionally, you can also share your project manually by taking a screenshot or video recording of your work. You can find the capture and record buttons at the right side of the screen while viewing your project in 3D or AR.
