Upload Assets to Workspaces

Upload assets from VoxEdit to your Workspace so you can prepare them for the Marketplace or discover them in your Game Maker library to build an Experience.

What is Workspaces?

Workspace is a location in your account on The Sandbox website that allows you to manage your assets. You can upload or replace your creations made in VoxEdit and find them in your Game Maker library for building Experiences using this workflow.
