Hi,

I tried following this tutorial, but it says rest is similar to image targets which in turn I couldnt find easier reference. 

Can somebody guide me to easy tutorial for How to change the 3D object to target? In my case I need to track an actual car. I have 3D model for it but I don't know how to replace the car model with default Hexagon model.

On a side node has anyone tried tracking an actual car? how does the 3D object tracking work? does it track the texture Image? or actual geometry of the 3D object?

In case you are developing in native mode, check the Target Configuration session:

https://easyar.com/doc/EasyAR%20SDK/Guides/EasyAR-Target-Configure.html

In case you are developing using Unity, refer to Unity Setting Up session:

https://easyar.com/doc/EasyAR%20SDK/Getting%20Started/2.0/Setting-up-EasyAR-Unity-SDK.html#d-object-tracking

What you need to do is:

1. place your 3D model files (OBJ with MTL and texture map) is the assets folder of your Unity project;

2. import your model from the assets folder to the Hierarchy/ObjectTarget in Unity; (where in the document, a cube model is showed)

3. change the rotation in Inspector of your model;
