Hi,

I imported one into a space, https://cospac.es/7xmU.
I hoped the library objects could interact with the terrain; i.e. a spheres simulating water flow, characters walking on the surface. Those won’t work because the bounding box around the .stl file. You could use a path but it would have to be shaped to the terrain which isn’t practical.

How are you going to using the terrain file?

Hi, yes.

so what would you suggest?

I am not using terrain files as a ground to walk on but to show students with AR the surface of our country.
@MrWolken shared his idea to use it but I didn`t get the idea with the water.
