FAQ

What is Edorble?

Edorble is a cross-platform application for Mac, PC, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift that lets you gather in 3D environments with your peers or colleagues. These environments let you use in-world web browsers, break into small groups, use gestures, and explore. You can either use our pre-made environments, or you or your students can use the Edorble Creator Tools for Unity 3D to design your own 3D environments (see next question).

Beyond Edorble, We also create custom 3D/VR applications for clients in the education/training space, and we offer in-person and online courses and professional development at Edorble Academy.

How do I use the Edorble Creator Tools?

The Edorble Creator Tools is a plugin built on top of Unity 3D, a free piece of software that we think is the best game engine in the world. You can download Unity 3D for free. We love Unity 3D because it lets you import 3D models created with nearly any 3D creation tool. So you can build a scene with Unity, but you can also import models from Sketchup, Sketchfab, Minecraft, 3DS Max, Blender, Maya, Tinkercad, and many, many more. 

Once you download Unity and you've signed up to be an Edorble creator, we'll email you the plug-in you need. This will add a few buttons to Unity 3D that let you quickly publish your creation to Edorble, turning it into a multiplayer, 3D world. Click here to try it out.

How much does Edorble cost?

While Edorble is in beta, it's entirely free so long as you are using it on a small scale (20 or fewer simultaneous users in your world). When we leave beta, we'll have an affordable, monthly subscription model that gives you access to larger-scale usage, premium features for the creator tools, and more. If you want us to design a custom build of Edorble with specific designs, features, or integrations, we also do that as a service.

Who is Edorble?

We are a team of teachers, developers, and artists who feel strongly that online learning should be more personal, playful, and powerful. Our mission is to help schools, teachers, students, and companies leverage 3D/VR technology for creation, communication, and collaboration. We hail from all over the world: Belgium, USA, Russia, Italy, and India. Besides working on Edorble, we also do custom 3D/VR development for projects in the education/training space.
