HOLOFIL-X 3D model animation - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?


What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Keeping the structure of the app future scalable so that we can keep on adding new features on the go.

The interviewee, Dr. Mrunal, is the Founder and CEO of HOLOFIL. HOLOFIL is a brand from Amsterdam, a Netherlands-based startup company Artosci. We have our own 3D holographic simulation display devices for both the business and consumer markets. Our latest patent pending consumer device HOLOFIL-cardboard is focused on 3D casual gaming use cases and these games are available for installation from PlayStore. Search for HOLOFIL and you will find them. We raised Euro 13k from 145 supporters to sell 130 devices in July-Aug 2022 and now are available in the retail market on our website to order further. Please do check out www.holofil.com for more information.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

I had tried a few 3D model viewer apps but did not like almost any of them. Or even if I liked a few, they became bad on newer upgrades. Now, we have launched a bunch of classic 3D games under HOLOFIL game store brand, and these are my new favorite apps as they recreate the magic of old classic arcade games like Tetris, Snake, Packman, and ping pong in 3D. Search for HOLOFIL on Playstore and you will find them.

How long have you been working on this app?

The app was launched around Oct 2018 and went through new updates and upgrades from time to time.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

At HOLOFIL, we are a 3D visualization display device company and wanted an app that further fits in our ecosystem of 3D model viewing and also supports our devices' features such as animation support, interactions, etc.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

The most important difference in our app compared to other similar apps is the support of FBX animation support. So you can load an FBX file with animation that can play in the app. We also are one of the few apps that offer 3d animation export support.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We might support more animation styles in the near future, and AR support as well.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Use the app and give us your review and feedback. Check out our recently launched product HOLOFIL-cardboard (display device) that can use the animations created from this app to create holographic visual illusions. If you like the app, share it with others.

HOLOFIL-X 3D model animation

About App:
If you have multiple files for a single model, such as obj / mtl/ textures etc. put all your files (such as model, material, textures, etc.) in a single directory and compress it to create a single zip file for e.g. test.zip, and upload this single zip file in the app to interact with the model.

You can continue to upload single self-contained files like fbx, stl etc. if there are no extra files. So if more than one file for model, zip and upload zip file, if a single file, upload the single file directly.
