A new feature of FARO Scene 5.3 is Cloud-to-Cloud registration, which opens up new opportunities for users to position their scans quickly and accurately, even under difficult conditions.
Si Horton, 3D Documentation Engineer at FARO, talks us through how to use this brand new feature.
Surely restoring a historical Church can’t be an easy task? Well, a recent project has used FARO 3D Laser Scanning Technology to simplify and speed up this process.
The 3D imaging system has been used to create point cloud models of the church in the Italian capital, revolutionising the restoration process. This has meant that the team of architects has been saved from carrying out a task which would have needed a great deal of both time and patience.
In Norway’s fourth largest city Stavanger the site for the world’s longest sub-sea road tunnel is situated, named the Ryfast tunnel project. The project consists of three tunnels and aims to establish a permanent road link between Ryfylke and Jaeren and hopes also to tackle the traffic problems through the northern parts of the city centre.
The Solbakk tunnel is the main tunnel being constructed with a total length of 14km and construction began in August 2013. The two headings being excavated by drill and blast will reach a maximum depth of 290m below sea level (Statens Vegvesen, 2013).
