Stamping and Placing

Note:  Stamping is currently unavailable for iOS 14 due to a bug with the Vuforia engine. We are looking into a solution that will allow us to re-enable this functionality soon!

Once a 3D object is being viewed on the Merge Cube, you can use the ‘Stamp’ tool to create a virtual ‘stamp’ of the object, so that it stays in place even when you take away the Cube.

This feature allows you to stamp multiple iterations of the same object from different angles, or to stamp different objects next to each other to compare and contrast. 

In this article we will introduce you to the Stamping and Placing function in the Merge EDU apps.

  • Stamping in Merge Explorer
  • Stamping in Object Viewer
  • Place In the World

When you’re ready to start, just follow these steps:

Step 1 - Stamping in Merge Explorer
  1. Launch Merge Explorer and open a Topic Card.

  2. Select an Activity and run the simulation on the Merge Cube.

  3. Tap the “Stamp” icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen to stamp an instance of the simulation in place. Now the image remains even when you remove the cube!

  4. Stamp several instances of the same simulation to compare different states side by side.

  5. Tap the stamped instances to continue to interact with the simulation.

 

Step 2 - Stamping in Object Viewer
  1. Launch Object Viewer and open an Object.

  2. View the Object on the Merge Cube.

  3. Tap the “Stamp” icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen to stamp an instance of the Object in place.

  4. Stamp several different Objects next to each other to compare and contrast different Digital Teaching Aids.

  5. Tap the instance of an object to engage the movement controls and adjust the positioning of your stamped object.

 

 

Step 3 - Place in the World
  1. Launch Object Viewer and open an Object.

  2. View the Object on the Merge Cube.

  3. Tap the “Cube-World Mode” toggle at the bottom-right corner of the screen to swap to “World Mode”.

  4. Scan a surface until you see a white circle form. Tap the white circle to place the object in the world.

  5. Tap the instance of an object to engage the movement controls and adjust the positioning of your stamped object. Tap the “Pedestal” icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen (beside the “Trash” icon) to place the object on a pedestal for viewing.

  6. Place several different Objects next to each other to compare and contrast different Digital Teaching Aids.

Now that you’ve learned how to Stamp and Place Objects in your environment, you are free to walk around the object at full size and view it from all angles! You can even Stamp or Place multiple objects and have a Museum right in your house!
