AR Code studio is an online 3D editing studio, it allows you to create and convert 3D files and then export them to .gltf format.

This last file format is used to generate an AR Code on our platform, it is then automatically converted to .usdz format on our server. The .usdz format is used to display augmented reality on devices that support iOS and iPadOS.
