Virtual Reality with Google Cardboard

What's great about VRDoodler is that lets YOU leverage webVR and responsive design so that YOU can create a spatialized sketch for a desktop or for a mobileVR experience.
Log in, create a VRDoodle using your desktop, tablet or mobile phone. Click the Cardboard button to see it in 3D. Sharing/publishing is coming soon!

Here is a prototype Photosphere made by Neiman Fellow, Wendi Thomas

Photosphere/Photoplane

What is a photopshere? Essentially, it's your panoramic picture wrapped around a giant sphere with you in the center.
Click the "Photosphere" radio button and Load a JPG or PNG file.
Different from Google Storyspheres, you can annotate your photosphere using VRDoodler.

Drawing

Key principle: use SHIFT to draw on the same plane as a previous line. Use the mouse to target a particular line.
Hold SHIFT, press the mouse down to start drawing. Otherwise your new line will draw at the current grid coordinate.

By drawing AT the intersection of another line, you 'group' those lines together. This is useful for copy and pasting.

Snapping
Note how the intersection point color changes depending on object intersected.
  • a yellow dot when intersecting with the grid
  • a red dot when intersecting with another line
  • a green dot when drawing at the plane specified by the previous intersection
  • use SHIFT to draw on the same plane as a previous line: use the mouse to target(hover over) a particular line.
    Hold SHIFT, press the mouse down to start drawing. Otherwise your new line will draw at the current grid coordinate.
  • You can turn snapping off in advanced mode.

use the CTRL(or cmd), SHIFT and ALT keys to draw along specific axes, or to draw straight lines.

Rotation

Toggle drawing off. Use the mouse to rotate the camera view. IF you have targeted a point with Snap Mode on, you will be able to rotate
AROUND that targeted intersection instead of around the origin

Export as OBJ

Exported OBJs can be imported to Blender or back into VRDoodler. SketchFab isn't working perfectly right this minute.
