How Can We Help?

There are a number of cases where you may need to take a video of your alignment with FabStation using HoloLens. For instance, the video is needed for certification, as a method of communication or just for your personal use. 

If you decide to take the video using HoloLens, you can do it like this: 

  1. To start recording, open FabStation on the HoloLens and say “Take Video“. You can start taking video after you are done with the 3D Viewer and went to the Auto-Fab on the tablet. 
  2. As you’re taking the video, you will see a red dot on the HoloLens screen, it indicates the recording in process. 
  3. When you need to stop the recording, say “Stop Video“.
  4. The recording will be saved on the HoloLens, and you can access it using the cable that you charge the HoloLens with. Plug this cable into the HoloLens and your computer. The files should be saved within one of the HoloLens folders (probably “Pictures”).
  5. Extract it from there and send to us.  

Delay between your view and recording. 

It’s expected that there is some slight difference between what you see at the moment of taking a video and what will be on the recording. It’s related to the hardware specifics of how it records holograms. So, if you need any precise frames, just stay looking at the same place for 2–3 seconds, and then move on. 

Sending video to FabStation support. 

If you need to send us a video, you can attach it to the email to or directly to the email of a support agent who asked for the video. 

If the video is too large to be attached, you can send it via file sharing services like weTransfer
