AR Cloud


AR Cloud is a connected service that allows Magic Leap 2 devices to access large-scale spatial data. This spatial data can be managed on the web-based console where digital twin administrators create Shared Spaces, manage device-side scans, and merge scans to contribute to larger-scale Spaces. AR Cloud admins are able to import and export spatial maps, manage large-scale digital twin deployments, and monitor Magic Leap 2 device access.


See our guide on required licensing to be able to use AR Cloud on your device(s):

AR Cloud allows users to go beyond the limitations of their Magic Leap 2 devices. The following features help enhance a user’s Magic Leap 2 experience:

  • Co-present experiences – allows multiple users to experience the same digital content in the same place through shared maps and their spatial anchors.
  • Large spatial maps (>10,000m2) – without AR Cloud, each device has a limit of five Local Spaces of ~250m2.
  • Device access to an unlimited amount of Spaces – Magic Leap 2 devices can gain unlimited access to shared Spaces, as opposed to the 5 stored locally.
  • Textured mesh exports – export textured mesh scans of your Space in USD file format.

Leap Brush

After installation of AR Cloud, we welcome you to try our first-party, Open Source project, Leap Brush.

This project will allow you to quickly ramp up to a multi-user, collaborative experience, leveraging AR Cloud's power features. The project can work over local area network (LAN), enabling virtually no latency for your shared experience.
