One of the biggest tech news last week was without a doubt Apple introducing its new iOS 12 along with supporting of USDZ, a new open file format for AR, now optimized for sharing. With the USDZ format, Apple's AR Quick Look also allows users to place 3D objects in the real world, opening the door for AR to skyrocket.

This makes it the perfect opportunity to create AR content and use it on iPhones or iPads running the new iOS 12. Vectary is the first online 3D design tool where you can create AR content for Apple’s ARKit 2.0. 

The easiest way to create AR

To create AR in Vectary, you can either design 3D models from scratch using a complete 3D toolset, or choose from thousands of 3D assets from Vectary’s library, including assets from Google Poly or Sketchfab. You can edit these any way you want to, and once done, export them as a USDZ file.

If Apple’s solution to converting to USDZ is to add an XCode 10 command line, Vectary offers a much simpler and easier way to achieve this. It basically does all the work for you, so you don’t need any coding skills.

How to create a USDZ file online and for free:

1. Open the Vectary editor.

2. Create a 3D model or import a 3D file (OBJ, STL, GLTF, DAE) with drag and drop. 

3. Export it as a USDZ 3D file in the right panel.

4. You will receive an email with a link to download your USDZ file.
