FARO Introduces 3D Solutions for AEC Industry
FARO Introduces Indoor Mobile Scanner and As-Built Modeler
The FARO Indoor Mobile Scanning solution enables kinematic 3D scans to be completed up to 7X faster than a series of traditional, fixed point scans over comparable areas. Thus, projects that took days can be executed in just a few hours, the company says. Additionally, as the Mobile Scanner includes fixed scan capability as a standard feature, users can simply switch to high-fidelity scan mode in real time for seamless integration with mobile scan data.
The Indoor Mobile Scanner solution combines several useful technologies, including FARO’s patented Focus Laser Scanner technology, which have been optimized to operate in concert. Current owners of Focus Laser Scanners or ScanPlan products will have a simple upgrade path to the Indoor Mobile Scanning solution, which protects their original purchase investment.
FARO As-Built Modeler Software enables AEC professionals to leverage the Scan to BIM workflow. As-Built Modeler is specifically designed to minimize the effort and time required to create as-built documentation, which is the main task across AEC professionals in the building, facility and infrastructure design phases.
This platform automates many cumbersome processing steps that must be performed manually today. Powerful tools allow the creation of CAD objects that can be directly imported in any CAD system independent of the specific CAD software, simplifying the modelling workflow for FARO users across the AEC industry.
