Settings

Model Settings

The model settings allow you to set a specific model for each platform. This is especially important when you are creating multiplatform lessons for mobile devices. Most mobiles do not have the memory required to run the detailed model you would normally perfer for VR or PC. In the Model settings we can decide which versions of the model will be used on different platforms.

AR Settings

The AR Settings allow you to manage the Augmented Reality options available in your lesson.
