Where to purchase assets for AR and VR

In order to build Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality you will need resources. Usually, the best way to have an asset is to create one. But for some projects, a shortcut won’t hurt. Why build if you can buy the assets? Here are the main places that I shop around for my projects.

Unity Assets Store – The All In One Go To Marketplace

Since I use Vuforia + Unity combination a lot. This is where i go to shop for my assets. From low poly 3D models, to textures, designs, UI and other features. The best part is, if you buy it from here it will almost most of the time work for Unity, since it is developed for Unity.

Low-poly 3D Models

3D models are the core of our experiences most of the time. When I look for 3D models, I will habitually look for low-poly 3d models. These are the best because highly detailed, high poly models will be very heavy for our 3d engines to handle.

CGTrader Low Poly

CGTrader is my main source of low-poly 3d models outside of the Unity Assets Store. They provide various assets, animated and non-animated for you to use and they also provide conversion services if the asset is not available in your preferred format. Very helpful indeed. Some of them will require further processing, others are ready to import into our tools like Unity

Music, Sound Effects and Ambience


You can find all sorts of sounds from the marketplace at AudioJungle. It comes with flexible licensing for different commercial applications.

Ready Made Codes and Templates

Yep you read that right sometimes its easier to have something to start with and just edit out some minor details instead. For this purpose, you need ready made codes and templates.


CodeCanyon has the templates and pre-made codes for you. Whether you need one to see how things work for reverse engineering or to make your work go faster try checking out this site to see if there are codes that you can purchase and use. Saves a lot of time.
