Article summary

Scaffold Viewer enables you to use your mobile device to move through your models in virtual reality (VR). To do this, you must first have the plastic Scaffold Viewer.

To navigate through a Scaffold Viewer model in VR:

  1. Log in to Scaffold Viewer.
    Scaffold Viewer displays the list of models available to you.
  2. Locate and tap the model you want to view.

    Scaffold Viewer displays the 3D View screen.
  3. Tap VR.

    Scaffold Viewer displays the model in virtual reality.

    You can then hold your finger on the screen to move forwards or backwards depending on which movement setting you are on.
    To change direction, you tilt the phone in the direction that will set the phone to portrait mode.

    When you tilt the phone far enough (approx. 70 degrees) a message will pop up alerting the user to the change in direction. The two directions are forwards and backwards.

    Tap the icon in the bottom right to switch between the VR and 3D view.

    The screen will look like this:

    You can tap the QR code icon to look at your scaffold through your viewer.
    Aim the phone's camera at the QR code on your viewer.
