Microsoft Maquette is 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. 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. 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.
