How to Create Customizable WebAR Experiences

Interested in creating an AR experience catered specifically to you without needing to code at all? Try using echoAR’s 3D-ready cloud platform to create personalized WebAR experiences!



Many developers and content creators are overwhelmed by the complexity of creating AR experiences, especially when it comes to coding for different platforms. This is where echoAR comes in. With echoAR, no technical knowledge is required to create personalized WebAR experiences. Here is a step by step guide to quickly and easily create personalized and customizable WebAR experiences using echoAR:

Adding a 3D Model

Once your register to the echoAR platform, you can add content by clicking the “Add To Cloud” button.



You can upload your own models and also use the search bar to find free 3D models that you can instantly add to the console.


Using the WebAR Customizer

You can now use our WebAR Customizer to generate no-code WebAR experiences. You can personalize all the experiences you create through the platform by adding buttons, actions, audio, and a custom background.



This allows you to generate webAR experiences that are more engaging and interactive, and include your branding:


Note that this feature is only available to enterprise clients.


Setting a Background Image

Use the Background card to set a background image for the webAR experience. Click the “upload” button and choose an image file (.png or .jpg) or an HDR file (.hdr).



Note that the image will only appear in the preview screen prior to clicking the “See in AR” button.


Adding Audio

Use the Audio card to add an audio file to serve as background music for the webAR experience. Audio will only start playing after a user interaction of any type (screen touch gesture, click, etc.).

Click the “upload” button and choose an audio file (.mp3 or .wav). You can also toggle the audio on and off by clicking the Audio card.



Including Camera Capture Functionality

Use the Camera card to include a camera capture button in the webAR experience. It will allow viewers to grab a snapshot of the AR scene. You can toggle the camera capture on and off by clicking the Camera card.



Adding Buttons, Actions, and a Logo

Use the Button and Logo card to introduce clickable buttons, actions, and your own logo to the WebAR experience.

You can set up to nine (9) UI elements on screen at once (on the top right corner, top center, top left corner, middle right, center, middle left, bottom right corner, bottom center, and/or bottom left corner).
