When it’s time to share specific digital teaching aids, collections of digital teaching aids, or your own 3D creations, you have the option of using a link, an object code, or a collection code. This will allow others to view what you shared with them on the Merge Cube using the Merge Object Viewer app.

In this article, you’ll learn how to find an Object Code or Collection Code on the Dashboard to share, and how to enter the codes into the Object Viewer app.
