Here’s a simple tutorial on how to publish a 3D model in augmented reality on the web ( aka webAR ).
Let’s go through the various steps on the xr.plus platform…
If you don’t have yet an xr.plus account, create one ( the basic plan is free )

Create a new scene an import a 3d model from your hard drive. Supported formats are .obj, .fbx and .glb (gltf).
For this tutorial, I’m using a Bonsai tree available here (download the fbx version).
This model was made by Scopia Visual Interfaces Systems, s.l. and Eteks,
available under the Creative Commons license ( https://resources.blogscopia.com/license-2/ ).
Is it also possible to make a scene from images, but I’ll only cover the 3D model process in this tutorial.
If the imported model includes materials, you will be asked if you wish to import them.
For this model I’m choosing ‘yes’, so materials will be automatically assigned to the meshes.

We just made it even simpler to create webAR and webVR content on the web: it’s now possible to make XR.+ simple scenes with just a picture, no need for a 3D model.
Here’s an example with the Saturn V rocket:

In addition to the combos Firefox & Oculus Rift or Firefox & HTC Vive for desktop PCs and Gear VR for Samsung devices, XR.+ now supports Google Cardboard viewers on Android phones with Chrome using the webVR API.
As usual on our web platform, there is no application to install, just open your browser and visit one of our many VR scenes.

There is a new feature for users on the Plus and Pro plans: video textures!
Video textures can be mapped on objects the same as usual image textures, they can be silent or with an audio track. You can even add transparency using chroma key effect ( aka green screen ).
Video with an audio track will require the user to press an extra play button, that’s a browser limitation: learn more.
See by yourself in augmented reality with those 2 examples:
