XR.+ cloud WYSIWYG studio enables experience makers to design, create, collaborate, publish and optimize webAR / webVR experiences that run directly on a mobile web browser.
We provide different means to promote the experiences including QR codes, url, HTML embed code 3D / AR player.
In addition, we support deployment on social applications such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and other social networks supporting AR

End user experience
XR.+ provides the highest level of compatibility with smartphones to deliver advanced AR / VR experiences to 3+ billions of end users
- webAR: we support all major browsers on Android and Safari on iOS phones
- webVR: we support Oculus Quest, Oculus Go, Gear VR, and the combo Firefox / Chrome + Oculus Rift / HTC Vive on desktop computers. If webVR is not available, the experience is displayed centered on the smartphone screen.
iPhones and iPads running on iOS 11 or newer
Android phones launched since 2017 with a minimum of 2GB RAM
Together, that’s 96% of phones compatible
3D model files
You can import .obj, .fbx and .glb (compressed gltf) 3D models.
Maximum file size:
- less than 80 000 tris (triangle faces) for AR
- less than 200 000 tris for VR
There are 5 types of materials in the editor
- simple material with a single texture
- physically based rendering material with 3 textures, use it for realistic shading
- single texture light shading applied, use it on models from 3D scans
- cell shading, for a cartoon effect
- same as unlit, but with a video as texture (not available on the free plan)
You can import .jpg and .png images.
- 1024 x 1024 pixels, 5Mb
- 2048 x 2048 pixels, 5Mb
- 4096 x 4096 pixels, 5Mb
On the Plus and Pro plans, you can import .mp4 files.
On the Plus and Pro plans, you can import .mp3 files.
- Maximum size: 1Mb
.fbx and .glb models animations can be activated with the ‘interactions’ module.
To play an animation, use a ‘play model animation’ action in the module states.
If the 3D model is static, you can also play simple animations ( pulse, rotate… ) from the module.
Interactions are made with the ‘interactions’ module, by switching between ‘states’ of the composition.
A state is made of actions, buttons can be added to it.
When a scene switches to a new state, all actions from the state are applied.
The default state is applied when the web AR image marker is tracked by the camera for the first time.
There are many different actions, such as:
hide / show an object, play an animation, play a sound effect, change a color or set a timer to switch to another state after a fixed amount of time.
Buttons can be used to switch between states, play sound effects, start a phone call, display a pop-up with text & image, open a webpage.
It is very important to optimize your projects!
Try to keep your project total size (model + textures) under 5Mb.
Do not use oversized textures, and delete all faces that are hidden,
short loading times and a good framerate always make an experience more pleasant…
On the PRO plan, you can create your own custom tracking web AR image markers.
Free users can use the default XR+ image marker.
It’s also possible to make experiences without image tracking, the phone motion sensors will then be used to position the scene content in the environment
Example: Micro story: Vika + Miśu
ARCore floor tracking
on ARCore Android compatible phones, XR+ scenes can be placed on the user environment, on a flat surface.
Example: Circus Pandy star
Publish a project
To make your webAR scene available for all, you need to publish your project.
If you don’t want your project to appear web in search results, set it to private.
Publish on another web domain
Business users can embed project from an external web domain inside an iframe, like when adding a Youtube video on a web page.
We provide a template for that, no coding to do, just upload the .html file to your server.
Note: an SSL certificate (https:// …) on your web domain is required to embed projects.
(PRO plan only)
To remove all XR.+ branding visual elements, check this list:
- Use a custom AR tracking image (marker)
- Embed the project from an external website
- Use a custom branding with your logo
- On the ‘screens’ tab, tick the Skip the ‘This is an augmented reality experience for mobile’ screen option
- On the social share button options, edit the shared link
- Customize the about screen
- Customize the AR help screen
