Affectionately known as “The Hammers” and now in their 9th year, the Construction Computing Awards showcase and reward the technology, tools and solutions for the effective design, construction, maintenance and modification of commercial buildings, residential and social housing and civil engineering projects of all sizes.
Among this years winners was the FARO Focus x330 3D Laser Scanner, which was able to prevail in the hardware product of the year category of the renowned Construction Computing award contest!
The Focus3D impressed due to its extremely powerful and accurate three-dimensional measurement method, which offers numerous advantages compared with conventional measurement systems. By means of three-dimensional scanning of surfaces, the laser scanner can record all spatial and surface geometry with millimetre accuracy with approximately one million measurement points per second. Much less time is spent in data recording, compared with other measurement methods. The resulting colour image of 3D measurement points shows an exact digital reproduction of existing conditions. Detailed 2D and 3D plans and complete 3D models can be created in a very short time with the precise data.
The compact size of the laser scanner was decisive for the award. It only measures 24 x 20 x 10 cm and weighs only 5kg. The Focus3D is thus highly mobile and usable at almost any location. In addition, it can be set up within a very short time.
