FARO Introduces the Focus3D – the Smallest and Lightest 3D Laser Scanner Ever Built

FARO, the world’s leading provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, introduces the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D

Focus3D is a revolutionary, high-performance 3D laser scanner for detailed measurement and documentation with intuitive touch screen control that makes it as easy to operate as a digital camera. It is four times lighter and five times smaller than its predecessor and is the smallest and lightest laser scanner ever built.

Focus3D uses laser technology to produce incredibly detailed three-dimensional images of complex environments and geometries in only a few minutes. The resulting image is an assembly of millions of 3D measurement points in colour which provides an exact digital reproduction of existing conditions.

Objective – Leadership in Innovation

FARO has successfully combined three tried-and-tested measuring systems in the Track ScanArm. The mobile measuring system is particularly impressive in the measurement of entire vehicles, not least as a result of its efficiency.

The BMW Group relies on the latest, state-of-the-art technologies, in particular in development and production. In this context, the Track ScanArm from FARO, which is used at the plants in Dingolfing and Regensburg (both in Germany), represents an equally clever and mobile measuring system in Geometric Integration measuring technology.

Software Tips & Tricks: Investigating large measurement volumes simply and accurately with PolyWorks and the FaroArm

It is sometimes necessary to carry out measurements from several positions in order to check larger components. The measuring software used for this task faces the challenge of greater measuring errors. For example, in what is known as the leap-frog process, measuring error accumulates with every repositioning of the digitising system. PolyWorks offers an excellent solution through its flexible device position management in combination with the FaroArm. Using algorithms for bundle adjustment, the errors arising in the leap-frog process are evenly distributed across the individual positions.
