Anchoring methods

  • Printed anchor (provided through the app) enables you to refer to a single printed artifact as a reference point for your guide. You position a marker in your physical environment as part of the process so that the holograms are placed appropriately in the real world, in reference to this marker position.

  • Digital anchor enables you to refer to a single virtual artifact as the reference point for your guide. For example, use a digital twin of a product part and manually align it to the physical world with HoloLens to set your guide.
