Exploring a model in Kubity VR
Magic Window mode
Kubity VR is automatically set to open in Magic Window VR mode. Magic Window allows you to view 360º content without a VR headset by rendering a single monoscopic view of a 3D scene that is updated based on the device's orientation sensor. In this way the device's screen acts as a seemingly magic "window" that allows you to experience the 3D ✨
Cardboard VR mode
Kubity VR also works in Cardboard VR mode with a low-cost, simple head-mount mobile VR viewer like Google Cardboard. To put Kubity VR in Cardboard VR mode, simply click the Cardboard icon in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
Once the model is in Cardboard VR mode, simply place your phone inside your viewer and start exploring.
To navigate within the model in Cardboard mode, you can use several technologies:
Cardboard Viewer controls
Use the button on the upper right of the Cardboard viewer to navigate step-by-step. You can also use Cardboard compatible devices (like clip-on style VR glasses) that allow you to touch the screen to navigate.
Gaze & Go
Gaze & Go is is a great way to go long distances and perform tedious movements (like walking up stairs) with ease. It's also a great way to get inside the model if it has a roof and no other entryways.
Exploring 3D models in VR is easy and intuitive. But sometimes, it’s more practical (and fun) to use a handheld gaming controller. Kubity VR is compatible with the SteelSeries Stratus XL for Android and the SteelSeries Nimbus for iPhone/ iPad.
