FAQ

How to get rid of the watermark?

Watermark on your web viewer means you are using a free version of Vectary or you run out of bandwidth for your plan. You can check your monthly bandwidth usage on your Vectary dashboard. 

Is it paid?

A limited watermarked version of the feature is for free so you can use it for client presentation and for feedback of your 3D design before you decide to buy a Premium package. With our paid plans you can get more bandwidth for the viewer - so you can be sure your visitors will see a version without the watermark. 

Why not just use USDZ export for AR view?

This is a great alternative to USDZ embeds as all your website visitors can get an interactive 3D experience, not just those with iPhone. Vectary Viewer now supports Android devices too!
