How to get XR Mesh Detection startup on Quest 3?

I try to use the XR Mesh Detection Sample Scene to start on my Quest 3, but I don’t know how to get it done. So far the scene is exporting to my local server. But how can I get it on my Quest?

Here is what I found for you :brain: Discord

Hello Robben, to get your exported Needle Engine scene running on your Oculus Quest 3, you’ll need to follow a few steps. Here’s a brief overview:

  1. Ensure HTTPS: For WebXR to function, you must serve your content over HTTPS. Check if your local server supports HTTPS and has a valid SSL certificate.
  2. Access Scene: On your Quest 3, open the browser (either Oculus Browser or Firefox Reality), and navigate to the local server’s URL where the scene is hosted.
  3. Enter XR Mode: Once the scene is loaded, there should be a button to enter VR. Click it to enter the XR experience.

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • Make sure your Quest is connected to the same network as your local server.
  • If the scene doesn’t function as expected, check the browser’s console for errors.
  • The browser on the Quest needs to support WebXR, which the Oculus Browser and Firefox Reality do.

For more details on the steps and troubleshooting, you can refer to Needle Engine’s documentation sections, such as “Virtual and Augmented Reality” and “Testing on local devices & SSL certificates”:

Remember that the Oculus Quest needs to be updated to the latest firmware to support the newest WebXR features.

Thanks for your feedback!

Not sure if the above helped already — your local server has an IP address and port (e.g. Make sure your Quest is on the same network as your computer and enter that URL in the Quest browser.
The website on Quest will refresh automatically whenever you make changes and save

Yes indeed it helped. :slightly_smiling_face: And thanks for your answer! A little confusing to me was to click AR instead of VR to make it work.

I see! Yes, naming can be a bit confusing, AR/Passthrough/MR are used pretty interchangeably for “I can see the real world in some way”
