Adding ARDK to Unity

How to import ARDK into Unity.


ARDK is not fully supported by certain Mac models with Apple Silicon processors (‘M1 chips’). See “Developing on M1 Macs” in Troubleshooting for a work-around for using ARDK with M1 Macs.


The easiest way to add ARDK assets to a Unity project is to import it as a Custom package.

  1. In the Unity Editor, choose Assets > Import Package > Custom Package to open up a file selection window.

  1. Select the ARDK .unitypackage you want to import, and the Import Unity Package dialog box will be displayed with all the items in the package pre-checked.

  1. Click the Import button and Unity will place all the contents of the package in the Assets folder, which you can access from your Project View.
