Introducing the FARO 8-Axis FaroArm® system and the Design ScanArm 2.5C

 

This month we introduced you to the FARO 8-Axis FaroArm® system that includes a complete rotational axis and is a natural extension to all FaroArm® products. Driving innovation further, our solution is transparent to the measurement software, enables more effective and faster scanning, requiring a minimum number of scans for a comprehensive scan. 

We were also very proud to announce the first arm-based solution to include high resolution, 3D colour scanning capability capturing in true-to-life richness and colour. The Design ScanArm 2.5C is also compatible with the FARO 8-Axis FaroArm® system.

Standing the test of time with special reinforcement by modern technology

When it comes to rebuilding historical sites, the traditional ways of rebuilding can have flaws, that is where modern 3D printing technology is able to offer a much better option.  

Dating back to 1761, The Great Pagoda was built in the Royal Palaces, enriching the London skyline for curious crowds of tourists. The dragons were removed before roof repairs could take place and were never replaced. Time has come, and the Historical Royal Palaces have decided to reinstate the dragons atop. 

Once designed, a dragon prototype was carved from wood then scanned into a 3D design environment with FARO® Design ScanArm, enabling to address HRP’s concerns regarding weight and facilitating the ability to scale up to various sizes. 

The Great Pagoda, located in Kew Gardens, London, carries 72 dragons reaching up to 1.8 meters in length.

Expert interview with Denis Wohlfeld

Denis Wohlfeld, a Senior Innovation Manager at FARO, leads FARO’s smart factory technology innovation and is the coordinator for ARENA2036 project “Digital Twin”. Smart factories have a mission to eliminate errors, increase repeatability and respond quickly and flexibly to real-time changes in demand. In the future, they will make decisions for themselves by learning every day how to make production more efficient.  

FARO creates the link between the real and the digital worlds. Creating a Digital Copy, a digital version of a part or a component, allows engineers to test and simulate new parameters and design variants that would be impossible in the physical world, to a high degree of precision.
