How to set up a computer

Holo-NFT system creates holographic experience by rendering 3D images according to user's viewing positions. To start setting up a Desktop AR system, follow the below steps.

  • Prepare a computer or laptop, most modern computers running Window 10 is compatible. It is also recommended that your computer have a GPU.

  • Have a webcam installed, it can be a webcam that comes with your laptop or you can plug in an external webcam, and place the webcam on top of your monitor.

  • Get Anaglyph glasses (Red & Blue 3D Glasses), you need a pair of red and blue glasses to use with your monitor when displaying the 3D effect in the anaglyph mode. You can buy the glasses from Amazon or from most online shopping websites. We highly recommend the paper red-blue glasses for best viewing experience.

Watch the video below for more information on how toset up a computer for Holo-NFT.

Convert a 3D model into Holo-NFT

The Holo-NFT Viewer allows importing 3D models in FBX and OBJ file formats from the file-system and converts them into Holo-NFT. The Viewer supports textures as BMP, JPG, PNG, TGA, and also allows importing models with animations. The file to import and the textures related to it should be in the same directory.

1. Download the Holo-NFT Viewer application.
