QR Codes are a simple way to share the links to mobile app files (drills and surfaces) that are being stored through various cloud storage applications. Since tablets and phones have the ability to easily scan a QR code through a camera, this is often one of the quickest ways to distribute your mobile application drill and surface files.
Printing a QR Code
To print a QR code, go to File and choose Print QR Code. The QR Code Printer window will appear.
You’ll need to enter 2 pieces of information in order to create a QR code for a drill: the Drill Title and the Drill URL.
The Drill Title can be anything you wish to call the file; it does not have to be the exact file name. This is generated purely for naming the QR code. When viewing a drill in the mobile app, the drill’s Title from Document Options will display.
The Drill URL is the download link (not to be confused with the share/view link that many cloud storage services provide) for the mobile file that has already been saved to a cloud storage service.
Click Print/Preview to preview and print the QR code(s). Save as PDF will create a PDF file for your QR code(s).
Similar to drill files, custom surface files can be shared via QR codes. Type in the Surface Title (again, this does not have to match the file name) and download URL for the surface file.
Once complete, click Print/Preview to preview and print the QR code(s). Save as PDF will create a PDF file for your QR code(s).
