We can also resize the object by double tapping it as we do it in general.
You can also resize it with two fingers spanning.
Mainly it requires a picture with good texture to render the 3d object on it.
You can have QR code to render the 3d object on it .
You can add the picture prior while creating the application or
You can add it instantly as you turn on your application camera.
Instantly it captures the picture of the portion that is visible in your camera and use it as the base for your application to augment the 3d object.
