We want to use our own QR code instead of PTC thingmarks so is it possible?
if possible then please share the procedure.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @ppandarkar-2 ,
it is very simple.
If you have an project which was published you can share it. Example>:
So you can make a picture of this QR code and you can scan it later when you want read the proejct in Vuforia View. So on this way you can achieve to retrieve the correct project.
Now you need to get the correct postion of the project . You can achieve this by using he same picutre (of the shared project QR code) in a image target:
I hope this will make it clear, if not , then , please , let me know!
thinkmarks provide identification AND tracking.
barcodes and QR codes do provide tracking. Do not use them to replace thingmarks if you need tracking.
in particular, do not do as the instructions above suggest and use QR code as an image target. This does not work.
Yes I full agree that such approach as described in my previous answer is not a good idea to be used as general solution way as mention by @SteveGhee because on this way we will not use the stable tracking mechanism of the thingmark.
It was only a pragmatic attempt to answer the quesiton based on my experience.
...but I am not convince that the the statement is true that the QR code does not work as Image Target. I tested it and it was working fine on android. Yes the QR code as picture has no so much contrast and may be will lead to difuctulties for the setting of the significant picture points for picture detection... but on my current test it was working so far and it did not make an difference if I used another picture with more contrast:
This above is an example for calling a project with QR as image target on Samsung Galaxy S9+
