VR Scene Inspection

The VR Scene Inspection add-on exposes and extends the native virtual reality features of Blender in the user interface. The feature set is limited to scene inspection use cases. More advanced use cases may be enabled through further development inside of Blender.

VR support in Blender is based on the OpenXR specification and requires some set up steps. These are explained in the Head-Mounted Displays (HMD) section.

Activation

  • Open Blender and go to Preferences then the Add-ons tab.

  • Click 3D View then VR Scene Inspection to enable the script.

Interface

Located in the 3D Viewport ‣ Sidebar ‣ VR tab.
