FARO Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of the world's best-selling portable measuring arms and laser tracker, today announced version 4.0 of its 3D laser scanning software family: FARO Scene, FARO Scout, FARO Scout LT and FARO Record.
The user-friendly high-performance software packages are used for the viewing, administration, calibration, filtering and management of large 3D point clouds collected with the FARO Laser Scanner LS.
"The FARO LS is the most advanced device of its kind and is now even more valuable for a wide variety of industries and applications," said Jay Freeland, president and one of FARO's CEOs.
Version 4.0 offers the following significant improvements: - Intrinsic use of the axis inclination sensor for faster registration - Forced plane adjustment for highly precise plane positioning - Easier export of sections - Export of objects in DXF format - Intelligent contrast adjustment to improve point cloud visualization - Automatic filtering
This new version also has a multilingual interface and gives the user the choice between English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Italian and Portuguese.
In addition, the FARO Laser Scanner LS has improved firmware that is available to existing LS customers free of charge.
The FARO Laser Scanner LS is a portable, computerized measuring device that creates a high-resolution, digital 3D "photography" by scanning its 360-degree environment up to 76 m away. The scanner collects 120,000 points per second with an accuracy of up to 3 mm, whereby the system recreates and records all measurements of the 3D objects on a laptop.
The data recorded in this way can then be used to create a digital model or an evaluation or analysis in comparison to an existing model wherever highly detailed 3D measurements are required; For example in plant planning, building data modeling - but also in special applications that range from land surveying to the reconstruction of accident sites or crimes to the digital preservation of historical sites.
