Google has introduced a new platform called Poly. Through this platform, users can find and share virtual and augmented reality objects, which are remixed by AR and VR creators.
Support for augmented reality has been increasing for a long time, as well as virtual reality. More 3D items and scenes populate AR/VR conditions. Google has made it easier by offering a number of tools to create these 3D assets, which include the free Tilt Brush and Blocks solutions and their related websites.
Poly is integrated with Tilt Brush for Google’s VR painting and Blocks for sculpting apps. Tilt brush is a VR based toolkit that will assist 2D artist transition to 3D. Blocks work within a VR environment to allow amateur to create 3D objects.
Poly is supposed to offer an art library for people building with Google’s ARCore, Apple’s ARKit and various AR development platforms. Poly will allow creators to directly publish their creations from both tools.
The site is fully equipped with thousands of objects and scenes which the users can look up q through categories such as Animals & Creatures, People and Characters, and Technology. The results can also be filtered to include Tilt and Brush sketches and for Blocks objects to display only those that permit remixing.
According to Google, modelers can upload work for free while other users can build on or remix their work. When the remix is completely published, it will generate a new listing that will connect to the original work, giving credit to its creator. After you’ve uploaded files, Google says that you can pull objects directly into a VR workspace and edit them. The 3D objects can be viewed in browsers, Cardboard or Daydream view, or they can be shared as animated GIFs.
