Anyone building for virtual and augmented reality needs 3D objects to populate apps. With VR/AR tools such as Tilt Brush and Blocks, Google has made (virtual) 3D creation easier. Now, the software giant is enabling creators and developers to build on everyone’s work: that’s why it created Poly: one place to browse, discover and download 3D objects.
Poly lets users quickly find 3D objects and scenes for use in apps, and it was built from the ground up with AR and VR development in mind. It’s fully integrated with Tilt Brush and Blocks, and it also allows direct OBJ file upload, so there’s lots to discover and use. Whether you’re creating an intense space walk in VR or a serene garden of AR flowers, you’ll find the ingredients you need in Poly.
Users can search thousands of free models for use in AR or VR apps, including everything from a rocket ship to a synthesizer to an ice cream cone. They can remix many of the models they find, click “like” to import a remixable object into Tilt Brush or Blocks and make changes. Poly will automatically credit and link to the original creation when you publish your remix.
In addition to being a great place for developers to find assets, anyone can use Poly to view 3D objects in a mobile or desktop browser. Users can search for specific things, like a fox or a pizza. Once they discover something they like, they can create a shareable GIF or view it in VR using Cardboard or Daydream View
So any developer building for VR, ARCore or ARKit, or anyone who just wants to explore cool 3D objects and scenes, Poly will help to quickly and easily find what you’re looking for.
