non-interactive content

In the non-interactive mode, the visualization content is 3d modeled animations that are exported in mp4 format and played in a looped manner as a show-reel. If you know how to do 3d modeling / animations, you can create the content yourself. The content can be created in 3D modeling and animation softwares such as 3D studio max, maya, cinema4d, blender, keyshot, adobe creative suit (illustrator, after effects etc).

We also offer our own in-house Android app that allows export of simple 3D model 360 degree rotation animation when you upload 3D models to it. See below for more.

We also offer a 3D text animation software that allows only

3D text animation as can be seen below. 

interactive content

In the interactive mode, the 3d models are loaded in an android app that is bluetooth controlled using a controller to allow rotation, movements, zoom actions. You can load any 3d model in FBX, OBJ, DAE, 3DS, PLY  format with sufficiently high poly count based on the hardware support to interact in the HOLOFIL device. If the model does not load, chances are the poly-count is way higher, then reduce it and load the model again.

There is also a face tracking interactive version for 3D model interaction as shown below. 

You can also build interactive games that can be played with Bluetooth controllers by creating mixed reality setups suitable for your brand promotions. See more details below. 

holofil bluetooth android interactive version

This is a version where you can use the Bluetooth controller to interact with your 3D models using wireless connectivity. Load models in fbx, obj, stl, 3ds, ply, dae format and control their movement, rotation, animation, lighting, and using the controller. This mode allows you to explain your 3D data to your visitors in an interactive way. 

face tracking interactivity

HOLOFIL has a face tracking feature which allows interaction with face where as you move in front of the device, the 3D model inside turns around to show you different sides of it in a seamless 3D experience way. 

Build interactive blue-tooth games 

HOLOFIL uses Android which allows you to build interactive games using game engines such as Unity, Unreal to create simple fun interactive Bluetooth controller games. Use them in a mixed reality setup like the shooting chicken game below in our test lab demo setup where the plants inside are real while the chickens and the hunter is virtual.

Now use the free Android 3D model viewer app to interact with your 3D models on smartphones with a touch interface. Load models in fbx, obj, stl, 3ds, ply, dae format and control their movement, rotation, animation, lighting, and background canvas color.


In the paid version (Euro 2.99) you can also export 360 degree turntable animations in various resolutions in mp4 format. Use free 3D models from Internet marketplaces to create the content that can be used directly in HOLOFIL or for other generic use cases. Check app store for the links to the marketplaces.  Do not forget to rate it and write a review. 



build your own apps using android / unity / unreal studio

HOLOFIL uses an Android based system that allows you to create your own interactive apps, games using Android studio / Unity / Unreal game engine support.  

Experiment with the software stack to create new interesting visualization experiments by building your own Android apps for interactivity. 


how to create 3d animation non-interactive content? (blog-post)

simple 3d text animations

Create your own 3D text animations using a simple 3D text animation creation software from us. You can use this for changing the content for product promotions, new deals, offers in HOLOFIL.


This software has predefined fonts, text animation styles, editor that allows you to create 3D text animations and export them in mp4 format to play in HOLOFIL. This is really good if you want to use it in shops etc. where you can place 3D text animation on top of your products for promotions. If you know how to use Microsoft word you can use this software, it's that simple. 

scientific 3d data sets

Many scientific data sets are in 3D format and are perfectly suited to visualize in HOLOFIL. Use your scientific 3D data-sets to visualize in HOLOFIL by tuning them to fit into the device visualization requirements. Medical data-sets from MRI scans, CAT scans can also be tuned and visualized in HOLOFIL. The example here is from a laser microscopy data-set. You can use open-source softwares such as Image-J to load sliced datasets of imagery and then output animations that can be played in HOLOFIL. Or you softwares to output 3D models to use in HOLOFIL interactively. 

3d scanned objects

3D scan your 3D models to visualize them in HOLOFIL. We use consumer grade 3D scanners to do 3D scans and then animate them to create 3D visualizations to be presented in HOLOFIL. 3D scanning is very affordable and gives extreme flexibility to present your artifacts be it art, engineering objects, or any other physical object in a more realistic way to your audience. This is a 3D scanned cow from the Cow Museum.

customized 3d content

We can create customized 3D visualizations based on your requirements to create amazing user experiences. Here you see an example customized 3D visualization with micro-organism matter that is a part of a show-reel for show-casing different micro-organisms. The prices for this vary based on the complexity of the content creation.
