    Hello everyone,

    I'm using ARfoundation and ARcore and unity 2022.1.21f1.

    I recently tried to create an AR project for android revolving around a rubik's cube, but I'm having a lot of trouble detecting the rubiks cube and even more trouble keeping track of it. To help track the cube, I've put a custom marker on the center of each face, but it still have trouble tracking.

    I've also tried using vuforia but the result is the same.

    I don't want to use ARkit because I don't have any apple device to test or build.

    Do you have any idea how I can achieve my goal and what I can use ?

    I think you have to switch for custom tracking with something like OpenCV for this. Image tracking won't work good enough and dont know of any tools that will fit well

    ARKit is a LOT better with image and object tracking.
    These bigger images are a lot better to track for any system however, cool idea

    Thank you for all the answer, it really helped, I decided to customize entirelly the faces of my cube so that the application can detect it more easily as the AR cubes you showed.

    It's much better now !
    Here is a look to one of the face I designed BlueFace.jpg

    I wish I could use ARkit but I don't have an Iphone to test, so I'm using vuforia for now
