Collada Objects in WebVR – Car Showcase in VR

Demo | Source

In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to add collada objects in WebVR to create a car showcase in VR. We’ll load a collada object of a car and place it on a floor to complete our demo.

Adding collada object

To add the collada object, we have to use ColladaLoader. We’ll scale the object to the desired size and then position the object infront of the camera.

To rotate the car, we’ll manipulate the position of the object. We’ll add the following code in animate function.

Adding floor using Plane Geometry

We’ll use PlaneGeometry to create a floor for our car. We’ll then apply the hardwood floor texture to create a material using MeshStandardMaterial

We have to create our floorMesh and position the floor below the car.

If you need help with setting up VRControls and VREffect, refer to the 360 photos in VR tutorial.
