Creating Custom Object Collections

Creating Custom Object Collections

Now that you’ve learned how to upload your own 3D objects and view them on the Merge Cube, it is time to learn how you can create your own unique collections to share. Creating custom collections allows teachers to focus only on specific teaching aids, and allows students to group objects together for a presentation or project.

In this article your learn how to:

  • Create A Collection in the Object Viewer App
  • Add Objects to a Collection in the Object Viewer App
