The FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D is a 3D laser scanner for detailed measurement and documentation with intuitive touch screen control.



Faro Technologies UK Ltd, a leading provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, introduces the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D. Focus3D is a high-performance 3D laser scanner for detailed measurement and documentation with intuitive touch screen control that makes it as easy to operate as a digital camera. It is four times lighter and five times smaller than its predecessor.

Focus3D uses laser technology to produce detailed three-dimensional images of complex environments and geometries in minutes. The resulting image is an assembly of millions of 3D measurement points in color, providing an exact digital reproduction of existing conditions.

The new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D is suitable for documentation of large environments, quality control of components and reverse engineering. Thanks to its millimetre-accuracy and its 976,000 measurement points/second, the Focus3D offers the most efficient and precise method for measurement and 3D documentation of building construction, excavation volumes, façade and structural deformations, crime scenes, accident sites, product geometry, factories, process plants and more.

The Focus3D is self-contained. No additional devices, cables or laptop are needed. With its dimensions of 24 x 20 x 10cm and a weight of 5kg, the Focus3D is compact and mobile.

Focus3D deploys an integrated color camera with automatic and parallax free color overlay for photo-realistic 3D scans. Its integrated lithium-ion high-performance battery provides up to five hours of battery life and can be charged during operation. All scans are stored on a SD card enabling easy and secure data transfer to a computer.

The FARO Focus3D is compatible with many common software applications. The flexible interfaces of SCENE, the scan processing software included with the Focus3D, enable connection to AutoCAD as well as many other CAD applications such as Rhino, Microstation, Geomagic, Polyworks and many others.

FARO has reducing the package size by 50 percent and has dropped the price by half that of any current laser scanning system.

“With the revolutionary Focus3D, FARO provides architects, civil engineers and plant designers with an efficient tool for rapid, seamless and precise documentation of the current status of buildings, plants and construction sites of every kind. The Focus3D offers advanced functionality through a simple user interface and expands the user base beyond the expert, moving phase shift laser scanning across the technology chasm,” stated Jay Freeland, FARO’s Chief Executive Officer.
