  1. Hi … wonderful tutorial. However, I followed all of the steps you explained but the camera can not detect the 3D object even on the textured sheet. Can you please help me with that?

    • Hey, i have the same issue. I followed the guide and implemented the app on an nexus 7, but the object can not be detected. I did not do any modifications on the code, so i don’t get it why it is not working.
