As a convenience, 8th Wall branded QR codes (aka "8 Codes") can be generated for a Project, making it easy to scan from mobile device to access your WebAR project. You are always welcome to generate your own QR codes, or use third-party QR code generation websites or services.
The QR Code on the project dashboard points to a unique "8th.io" shortlink for your project. This shortlink then redirects a user to the URL of your Web AR experience.Both the QR Code and "8th.io" code for a given project are static and will not change based on project type or license.
