Microsoft MaquetteMicrosoft Maquette was released on January 15, 2019 by MIcrosoft who also developed it. Microsoft Maquette is a virtual reality sketch tool.

Microsoft Maquette s a general purpose mock-up tool for spatial prototyping within virtual reality. It was built from the ground up to empower anyone to create fully immersive concept sketches in VR from inside your headset.

This is a very approachable scene creator for VR using premade assets. Its clearly designed for novices to learn how to create new ideas out of a selection of 6 samples and some easy to understand instructions. We recommend reviewing the videos to learn how to use Maquette and better understand how it works. Maquette includes a set of tools for importing, creating, composing, and storyboarding content in 3D space, complete with a library of primitives and UI icons.

You can use object assets from Microsoft or Google. Obviously, Google has just about any 3D object asset you can think of with the strong community there.  Maquette also has very powerful tools, from cloning, to grouping, to deleting, to altering the dimensions.

Among many other features, Maquette has fast and approachable UX, a text tool for annotations and spatial UI mockups, and easy selection and nested-grouping of content. Maquette has a complimentary Unity addon for importing Maquette content into Unity, which preserves materials and grouping hierarchy.
