Lake Mary, Fla. – FARO Technologies announced the release of SCENE 5.0, the latest in the company’s line of point cloud capture processing software for the Focus3D. For the first time, SCENE users can view their scans in true stereoscopic 3D for unprecedented levels of realism. Automatic fine registration eliminates the need for artificial targets in many cases when piecing together multiple scans, and the new Project Database enables enhanced levels of networking between users.
5.0 contains automatic fine registration, a new cloud-to-cloud enhancement that
reduces or removes the need for the placement of artificial targets in many
scanning applications and significantly reduces post-processing time. Rather
than utilizing spheres or checkerboards, the software identifies prominent
objects such as corners, edges and other flat structures within the scan and
uses them as reference points. These features help to seamlessly meld together
multiple scans to form a single, complete point cloud. This new addition,
unique to SCENE 5.0, further expedites the merging of scans between remote
Project Database is FARO’s latest way to facilitate scanning project
collaboration. This new addition seamlessly stores project information and a
step-by-step history of each scanning project. Users may now return to any step
in a scanning database, quickly and easily, no matter where they may be in
their process. They may also select which details to display on a given
project, allowing users to choose which level of detail to display and reducing
extraneous data points. SCENE 5.0 also supports the new ASTM E57 industry
standard, a manufacturer-independent, binary data exchange format for 3D data.
Through this, users may import and export scanning data regardless of the
specific product used to capture it.
for SCENE 5.0, stereoscopic visualization allows users to view their scans on
3D-enabled monitors. The result is an added level of detail and a heightened
sense of realism found in major motion pictures. This 3D viewing feature literally
adds new dimensions to scanning work. “SCENE 5.0 combines ease-of-use,
networking and an enhanced 3D experience to deliver a complete scan processing
solution,” said Oliver Burkler, senior technical product
manager for the Focus3D.
