In the world of tech, QR (Quick Response) codes sometimes get a bad rap. No one quite knows what they are or why to use them. But here at Kubity they are the key to everything we do, and smartphone users are starting to catch on!
QR code is the trademark name for the boxy barcode system invented in 1994 by Toyota’s Denso Wave as a fast way to track vehicle assembly. Unlike traditional barcodes, QR codes can hold up to 100 times more data and can be digitally scanned — this makes them the perfect delivery system for 3D models.
When a model is exported from your Kubity SketchUp or Revit exporter plugin, it is automatically assigned a dedicated QR code. Then it’s safely locked away, just waiting for the right person to come along with the key to open the door — that’s the QR code. This code creates a shortcut for a user to scan with the Kubity GO mobile app for instant offline access. Only a person who has the QR code can view the model!
There is no limit to sharing and the best part is you control who you share with and with how many!
Share your 3D SketchUp and Revit projects through a quick QR code scan or by using Whatsapp, SMS, email and more!
