Error - Project is not yet compatible

  • Project is empty.

-OR-

  • This is an older project and conversion takes longer than 10 seconds.

If the project is empty:

Add at least one sheet using the HoloBuilder WebEditor.

If the project is not yet converted:

Allow some more time for the process to complete. Depending on the project size, this might take a while. For example, projects with 10,000 360° images take about 25 minutes to fully convert.

Error - Point Cloud node not found
  • The point cloud, that the project is connected to does not exist anymore.

-OR-

  • You do not have viewer rights on the point cloud.

If the point cloud does not exist anymore:

Open the project in the Sphere Viewer without entering the “3D Overview”. Instead disconnect the point cloud from the “2D Overview” mode.

If you do not have sufficient rights to see the point cloud:

Please ask the admin/owner of the point cloud project in WebShare for appropriate rights.

Permission Denied
  • You do not have sufficient permissions to view the project copy on Sphere.

Contact your admin/project owner to apply the appropriate permissions.

Error - Out of sync
  • The backend is still synchronising the project.

Allow some more time for the process to complete and try again.

Error - 409
  • The project is in a conflict stage.

-OR-

  • The name of the project is not unique.

In HoloBuilder rename the project.

If the error remains, open the HoloBuilder WebEditor and save the project (without making any changes), then wait.

Error - Project Not Found
  • The project is not properly synchronised with the backend.

Open the HoloBuilder WebEditor and save the project without making any changes, then allow some more time for the process to complete.
