This feature allows you to record a video of your 3D scaffold model and upload it to social media. You can use the video to take your colleagues, partners or customers on a tour of your scaffold, giving them an idea of what the scaffold will look like before it is erected. The video will be uploaded to YouTube where you can share the link on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn or you can share the link via email.
Note: You will need a YouTube profile to upload videos to YouTube. For more information on creating a Youtube profile, please visit https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1646861?hl=en.
Please note you can only upload and share videos of the scaffold models you have created. You will be unable to record and upload videos of any scaffolds shared with you by other users.
