Google goes head to head with Microsoft for heart of 3D creators

Oculus Rift

The library is fully integrated with Google's Tilt Brush and Blocks apps, letting you modify numerous objects to better fit your project. The new tool is equipped with Tilt Brush and Blocks, Google's VR painting and sculpting apps and is supposed to assist and facilitate people with an art library for all those individuals working with Apple's ARKit, Google's ARCore or many different VR development platforms.

With the rise in the availability of 3D content on the web, the need for sharing platforms for 3D objects has also risen.

The model is a bit like Flickr, but for VR and AR developers rather than photographers.

Google has started things off by adding a ton of 3D models created in-house, but the company expects Poly's library will grow as more people look to share and show off objects they've created.

It's done this by launching Poly, an object library for augmented and virtual reality applications that will be compatible with existing AR/VR platforms and that will be free to use. Anybody with a Google account can upload files to Poly, and there does not seem to be any sort of quality monitoring, so 3D artists of all experience levels are seemingly welcome to give their creations to the community at large.

"In addition to being a great place for developers to find assets, anyone can use Poly to view 3D objects in a mobile or desktop browser", Zvinakis explains. Those who want to use Poly creations outside of Blocks and Tilt Brush can simply download them in OBJ form.

Found a robot you like, but need it with four arms instead of two? "Once you discover something you like, you can create a shareable GIF or view it in VR using Cardboard or Daydream View".
