Saving and building your scene

As an experience creator, you will spend a lot of time within the Scene Editor, where you can edit your scene and populate it with content. This article focuses on the three action buttons on the scene toolbar found within the Scene Editor that allows you to:


When in edit mode, look to the upper right section of the interface to find the scene toolbar that gives you the option to save, build and publish to the Atlas.

 Save your progress

The Save button allows you to save your most recent changes in your scene. We highly encourage you to save your progress frequently to avoid losing your changes. 

Note: Saved changes are not automatically pushed out to the live version of your scene. You must build your scene first before it can be visited.


Save your progress frequently.

Build your scene/experience

Building is an important step in creating your experience and enabling it to be visited and shared. When you click Build, Sansar creates a live version of the scene with the most recent changes.

Things to remember when building your scene:

  • If you want to test your scene, make sure to hit the Build button so that you can visit the scene and check your changes.
  • When you press Build on an experience that is currently published in the Atlas, the new changes are automatically pushed out and become the version that visitors see when they visit your experience. 
Note: A scene needs to be linked to an experience in order to visit it.


Build your scene to allow visitors to see the most recently saved changes.


Publish your experience in the Atlas

If you want to share your creation publicly, you can publish it to the Atlas. See Publishing an experience in the Atlas for more information.

Note: A scene on its own cannot be published to the Atlas. It must be linked to an experience first for it to be publishable in the Atlas. 


Publish to the Atlas to showcase your experience publicly!
