Feature details

Use the Measure in MR component in your app to let users measure distance, area, and volume with their device’s camera. During measurement, you create 2D and 3D polygons that can be used to confirm how a certain-sized object would fit within a space. For example, you could measure the length of a wall to see if a display case would fit in the area.

The measurements are then returned to your app where you can use it in formulas, store it in fields, and so on.
