MR Builder

MR Builder

Win64, English

The plugin that helps you to prepare your 3D model to use in MR Builder on Microsoft HoloLens and get full experience while working with your model. Requires Microsoft Hololens.

General Usage Instructions

In Autodesk® 3ds Max® the app shows under the 'Utilities' as shown in the screenshots.

There are several tabs and sections. On the left is the window in which the selected objects are displayed. On the right is the file statistics (number of polygons and objects). HoloLens is a mobile device therefore there is a limit on the number of polygons (three hundred thousand). There is also a list of all created tags.

Let's start with creating tags that will help us get inside the model.

Select all objects that belong to the floor. We have one and click on the button "Add tag" or "Move".

In the section below you'll create a dummy. This is the point at  which we will get when in the MR Builder application we click the "Inside" button.

In the Layers tab, we enter the name of the layer, and choose all files that we'd like to add to that layer, then click Create.

Save button will save your model in FBX in selected path.


Connect to MR Builder connects to the app on HoloLens and allows you to send your file directly to the glasses.
