Exporting Objects from Qlone


Qlone is an all-in-one 3D-scanning app created by EyeCue Vision Technologies LTD, which can quickly and easily scan real objects using your phone's camera, modify them in-app, and seamlessly export the result to many platforms, 3D file formats, and 3D printers.

​In this article, we will show you how you can export your 3D-scans from Qlone into a compatible file format for upload onto the Object Viewer app.

Follow these instructions to find out how to export your 3D object from Qlone:


Step 1 - Launch Qlone from your Device

Qlone is an app that can be downloaded onto compatible iOS and Android devices, with the iOS version having more advanced features.


Step 2 - Select the Object you wish to Export
  1. The Qlone app should open directly to your “Gallery”, tap the object you want to export to open the object’s options


Step 3 - Export the Object into a compatible file type
  1. Tap the “Share” icon to the bottom-right of the page to open the object’s share options

  2. Qlone can export objects as OBJ, STL, and FBX files. Tap “FBX” to export your object as a ZIP archive containing your object’s FBX file and associated textures.

  3. Select how you want to share the export. Qlone can send the export file to your email, or be shared through a Classroom Management app on the device. You will want to send your exported file someplace where you can easily access it for upload.



Step 4 - Upload your Object using Object Uploader

Now you can sign-in to your Merge Account on the Dashboard and upload your 3D Object using the Object Uploader.
