Mobile 3D Model Download - New Feature Highlight

Hello Creators and Explorers of Display.land!


We’re excited to announce that we’ve just launched one of our most requested features - the ability to easily access and download your OBJ, GLTF, or PLY files directly from the Display.land app!

What does it mean?

This means that it is now easier than ever to get export your captures and speed up your workflow. 


How does it work?

Want to quickly share your mesh model with either yourself or someone else? This new feature gives you the convenience of downloading your file directly from the app and sharing it through several channels.

Once you’ve created and published your capture (Public or Personal):

  1. Click the share button on your capture
  2. Click the new Download Mesh icon
  3. Select the file type you wish to download ( PLY, GLTF, or OBJ are the current options) and click the “Send Link” button next to your selection
  4. Decide which method you want to use to share the download link (email, text message, etc)
  5.  Send it!


This sends a link to the file download to whomever you wish ( your project partners,  friends, yourself, anyone) on whatever device you wish (phone, computer, etc). Note: The link will expire after an hour - so be sure to grab the file before then. If you are unable to get it in time, no worries - simply resend the file link to create a new one. Also note that your download will contain the model for your full capture. Any cropping or 3d object additions will not be represented in your mesh download.

Pro Tip: If you are on iOS, the easiest way to share the file is through AirDrop.


It’s that easy! 


Re-cap! What Makes this Feature Great?

Now you have the power and freedom to download, share, and locally save your 3D mesh models in a streamlined, fast and simple way. This opens up a lot of ways to further explore and create with Display.land. You can collaborate with others on projects, easily save, and archive your models - and do it all with ease.

Mobile 3D Model Download - New Feature Highlight

It’s been a wild three months.

From graffiti filled streets in Spain to underground bunkers in Sausalito, subway stations in Tokyo to industrial kitchens in Texas, the Display.land community has been blowing our minds every morning by capturing, sharing and exploring each others’ spaces from around the world during our early access period.


To learn more about our story of getting to here and where we’re going, keep reading, but if you just want to try it out yourself, head on over to the iOS or Android stores to download and start creating!

What You Can do Today

Capture any space with the device you already own — from as small as a courtyard to entire city blocks
Edit insanely fast — changes you make to your spaces are rendered and saved in real time.
Instantly share your spaces via web links and videos, or freely export them as 3D models
Explore the world and join a community of global explorers in 50 countries

How We Got Here

We started U6 with the mission to unlock new ways for people to create and connect in the physical spaces they care about, such as our PlaySFMOMA space last year.
To create that experience, we captured the SF MOMA’s physical space in 3D using a commodity smartphone, edited and authored it remotely in a web browser, and allowed hundreds of people to browse and experience the sandbox together in real time from their own devices onsite in AR, and remotely via desktop and webVR browsers.

With today’s release, we’re beginning to put those same tools in everybody’s hands, with the goal of building and improving our roadmap in public with our community.

Where We’re Going: Editing Reality Together

Unlocking a new digital canvas for creativity and shared experiences.
Our goal is to grow Display.land into a destination where people can create, share and explore together in new, immersive and interactive ways.

We believe the best way to achieve this is by releasing often and publicly, supporting our earliest creators, and constantly increasing access to creative tools only previously available to high end gaming, graphics and 3D professionals. In the coming months, you can expect to see regular updates along this path.

Display.land is for those of us who see art in reality. If this sounds like something you’re interested in working on, shoot us a note! We’re working on some of the hardest challenges in computer vision, graphics and multiplayer networking and are hiring actively.

Mobile 3D Model Download - New Feature Highlight

Creators! Did you know that you can download any of your captures as a 3D model? 

We currently support OBJ, GLTF, and PLY file formats, which make it possible to use captures from Display.land in Blender, Cinema4D, Unity, Unreal, Maya, and most other popular creative software applications.

To download the 3D mesh, just open one of your captures in a desktop web browser, and click the download button in the upper-right corner of the screen. You’ll need to be logged in to see it.

If you are on iOS, the easiest way to open your capture in a browser is through AirDrop. You can AirDrop yourself the link to the desired capture by opening the Share Menu and pressing “More.” From there, a new menu will open giving you the option to airdrop the link. 

If you are on Android, we find it is easiest to email yourself the link. Open the Share Menu and press “More.” From there, choose email or whatever the best option is for you.

Note: Your download will contain the model for your full capture. Any cropping or 3d object additions will not be represented in your mesh download.
Once your 3D mesh has downloaded, this is where the magic begins. You now have the opportunity to create phenomenal artwork using captured physical reality. Try challenging the mundane by drawing in the absurd.

Or, experiment with contrasting elements. The opportunities are endless and the boundaries are limitless. Check out what our creators have made with Display.land below.
We absolutely love to see what our Creators create using their Display.land meshes. In fact, we have an entire Discord channel dedicated to them! You can find this channel here: https://discord.gg/b2vxQpu.
We can’t wait for you to join and to see how Display.land has inspired you. ✨
