You can add different kinds of objects to any HoloBuilder scene in your project to enrich it visually and functionally.

  1. Start by opening your HoloBuilder project in the Web Editor.
  2. In the panel on the right side of your screen, find and open the Objects menu, marked by a white cube icon. 
  3. You now have a wide variety of choices between different kinds of objects:
    - Custom Objects                          - Action Objects
    - Textured Shapes                         - Arrows
    - Shapes

   4. Select your desired object from one of these categories. Find out more about the
       different kinds of objects further down in this article.
       Alternatively, you can also drag the object directly onto a certain location in the
       360° image. 

   5. For textured shapes, custom and action objects, a new tab will open, where you
       can enter customized information, e.g. an image for the object or a text to be
       displayed. Then click ADD/APPLY CHANGES to create the custom object. 

   6. Arrows and shapes will directly appear in your scene when selected. You can now
       move and rotate the object as you like to put it in the desired position in the
       scene.
