Step 1 - Gather Your Content

Before actually building the experience, it's important that you have all of the building materials necessary to build and put it together quickly! It's never fun to have to search for things when all you want to do is get it built already! In this case, your building materials are the custom 3D content and assets you need to build your space and make your space look the way it does in your head. This could be floors, walls, tables, chairs, windows, roads, and even already-designed buildings or spaces. You have a drawing to now go off of, colored in I hope, so you have a rough idea of what you need to make it happen. Make a folder on your computer and save all of the assets there to make it easiest for yourself.


Where to find 3D assets?

  • Our team is currently finishing up the Agora Marketplace so you can discover 3D assets and auto-add them to your inventory and you can absolutely discover some amazing 3D models right there.
  • Given that, our team is also big fans of using Sketchfab, CGTrader, and even taking our own 3D models using our phones (using apps such as Qlone, 3D Scanner App, and Scaniverse).
  • You can find everything from floors to walls to full rooms, buildings, and environments to use!
  • NOTE: at this moment, we support .FBX, .OBJ, & .GLTF. If downloaded from somewhere like sketchfab, we recommend uploading the .ZIP file directly to the app
  • NOTE 2: File size is vital to remember. The bigger the file you download and use, the more your user has to download in order to access your experience, meaning longer download times! If you need help optimizing files, we have multiple partners that can help. Pretty soon, they'll be offered right inside of our editor!


I simply search for the assets I'm looking for, download them to the folder, and then keep searching for other ones I need! In this case, I searched for a few things:

  1. Bamboo
    1. I knew I wanted the walkways and surroundings to be forest-y as well as have a tropical, warm feel to it so I wanted to use bamboo as the main prop.

    2. Maybe a plant or 2 so I can add that in the space too

  2. Grass/Hedges
    1. Must have if it's outdoors!

  3. Walls, Floors
    1. I know the Agora marketplace has a bunch available and within the app our team has released an Official package called "Primitives", which are essentially cubes with many different types of texture on it, perfect to stretch out and flatten or make taller as necessary for all of the construction to be done in the space!
  4. Coffee Shop
    1. Well we did say we wanted to keep people energized!

Once you feel like you have a good amount of building materials to work with, it's time to start building! There's a good chance you will have to go find more assets as you build out the space and further realize your imagination but you won't be able to get there until you start laying the foundation. Now it's time to hop into Agora World and truly build
