This guide will walk you through the basics of streaming, positioning and interacting with models in mixed reality on the HoloLens 1 and 2. After completing the guide you should be able to calibrate the headset for your eyes, prepare a workspace for good tracking, and confidently stream your models to the HoloLens without issues. We will work with a mixed reality sandpit to demonstrate the advantages of depth perception and natural 3D interactions. You will also learn to create videos of mixed reality experiences from both the HoloLens and mobile phones. 

Who  should complete this guide:

This guide is intended for first time users of both the HoloLens and Fologram.
