8 years later and if i'm correct they're still ignoring....

Hi all,

 

If the desire is to simply view the 3D model, you can publish the model using AR Design Share, and then the model can be viewed at lifesize scale on your phone/tablet in the real world. This works on most major Android devices (as well as iPhones/iPads). Hopefully that's helpful

Hi Luke
"Simply" is the correct word ! (and not part of PTC world)
I don't want an AR, don't want to have a printed target ... these are smart tools, great ! But why can't it be more simple ?
What CreoView make for my partners works fine on their computer, even smarter on their MS Surface tab. It's simple and efficient, they dont need target, don't play with AR, but it's powerfull to discuss arounf a model.
Why can't we just have it on Android ?!!

Hi Pierre,

 

There's no longer a need to print out a target to view the model in AR (though that is still an option). Using a spatial target, the tablet can simply scan the floor or desk and place the object full size. The tablet just needs to scan the QR code and it will launch the experience.

 

In fact, a major part of the value of AR Design Share in Creo is to make it as simple as possible to view/share models. No software downloads (okay, the Vuforia View app has to be downloaded on the device, but no licensing details to worry about), no data exports, or anything. Just simply publish the model from directly within Creo, and scan the QR code on your tablet and view the model. Certainly, there are other capabilities in something like Creo View that could be useful in such a tool, but for basic viewing purposes, I would argue that AR Design Share is far simpler than any other option.

I will retry to give a chance to DesignShare, but if I basically try to open a model shared on my dashboard, it failed.
I can't even try the WelcomeExperience because it ask me the ThingMark...

Here is the list of devices that support Spatial Tracking (called Ground Plane on the Vuforia page):  https://library.vuforia.com/platform-support/vuforia-engine-recommended-devices.html 

 

While Spatial Tracking is supported on most major Android devices, it looks like your device does not support it.
