2D images can be a very useful addition when it comes to showing or highlighting specific aspects in your 360° image with more details.

2D images can be added...

  • directly on site with the JobWalk App (learn more)

  • remotely at the office with the Web Editor

Add a 2D image in the Web Editor

  1. Open your project in the HoloBuilder Web Editor

  2. Go to the action object menu of your project on the right-hand side. 

  3. Under Action Objects, either click on the "Show image" icon or drag and drop it onto the 360 image.
