Room-scale mode

Create mixed reality (MR) content for the physical world

Room-scale mode

Room-scale mode allows you to create persistent content on top of the real world. Once you align your virtual objects to your room, it will stay locked to that point even when you come back in another session. This is a great way to design augmented and mixed reality experiences. You can also work with other people in the same physical room and content will be in the same place for everyone.

Activate Room-scale mode

Toggle the Room-scale Mode switch in the Mixed Reality & Passthrough panel to activate.

Align the virtual world with the physical world

The first step is to align the virtual world with the physical world.

Environment setup

If you have not set up your environment in the headset settings, you will be asked to do this in ShapesXR:

If you’re not happy with your room setup you can clear the space setup and configure your environment again in the Space Setup settings.

Edit Offset to fine-tune alignment

If your content isn't exactly where you want it, you can edit the offset of the virtual space in the physical world.

After pressing the Edit offset button, hold both of the grip buttons on your controllers to adjust the position and rotation of the space in the real world.

Use floor leveling for a more precise alignment

Use the Height shift slider to change the floor leveling of your space.

After you have configured the position of the virtual space in the physical space, click the Done button.

Room mesh

We visualize the walls and objects of the room that a user has configured in the Space setup settings.

You can hide and show Room Mesh visualization.

Dollhouse mode

While in Room-scale mode, you can go into Dollhouse mode to edit your space from a more convenient position.

To do this, start changing your scale using the Grip buttons on both controllers. While holding those buttons pressed, bring your hands together to change your scale.

After changing your scale in Room-scale mode, you enter Dollhouse mode. Make the changes you need to your space from any position.

Then, to return to the original position you configured, click on the "Back to 1:1 reality\Room-scale mode" button in your Mixed Reality & Passthrough panel.
