FARO, Autodesk & UCL AEC tech collaboration day

To be held on the 17th of June at the Darwin Building we invite you to join us on a FARO and Autodesk AEC tech collaboration day, to be hosted by and held in association with the University College London.

Point Clouds are becoming the new currency of 3D as built documentation. With the latest innovations in Autodesk software and the continued development of FARO’s laser scanning technology, the integration of point clouds into AEC workflows has never been easier with such possibilities for accurate modelling, as built verification and visualisation.

On the day you will have the opportunity to learn tips and tricks from Autodesk’s Lee Mullin and Faro’s in house Engineers Chris Palmer and Si Horton.

FARO® Edge ScanArm HD wins Innovation Trophy

This year, some 148 innovative products were in the running for the various trophies awarded by the organiser of the Industrie Lyon trade fair, the reference trade fair for all industry professionals. A panel of industrial and institutional experts and journalists from the specialised trade press reviewed the innovations submitted, and awarded the prize to the innovative FARO Edge ScanArm HD.

The Edge ScanArm HD is a compact and simple to use high performance contact/non-contact portable measurement system that combines the flexibility of the FARO Edge measuring arm with the power of the high definition FARO Laser Line Probe HD.

Innovation Trophy

The FARO Laser Line Probe HD has been developed with complex application needs of automotive, subcontracting and mechanical engineering companies in mind.  Intricate components can be captured in the finest level of detail as a result of the 2,000 actual points per scan line, while the 450 nm Blue Laser improves the detection of the line by the camera. The extra wide scan stripe and fast frame rate (280 frames/second) boosts productivity by increasing coverage and reducing scanning time. Furthermore the improved HDR (High Dynamic Range) Mode and advanced software algorithms allows seamless scanning across diverse surface materials regardless of contrast, reflectivity or part complexity, without any special coatings.

FARO UK @ GeoBusiness 2015

An opportunity for geospatial technology manufacturers and service providers to meet face-face with their users to demonstrate the latest technological advances in equipment, explore solutions and capabilities and to collaborate on design issues and options for future developments and requirements.

GeoBusiness London 2015 - The Geospatial Event

FARO will also be in attendance promoting the FARO Focus3D Laser Scanner with accompanying FARO Scene Software. The smallest and lightest laser scanners on the market – FARO Focus3D X Series are ideal tools for indoor and outdoor applications. The fast and accurate laser scanners Focus3D offer everything you might expect from professional 3D laser scanners – with FARO’s established and well-known level of simplicity.

Also being demonstrated will be the groundbreaking FARO Scanner Freestyle3D. The new FARO Freestyle3D is a premium quality, high-precision handheld 3D scanner that can quickly and reliably documents rooms, structures and objects in 3D and create high-definition pointclouds. The highly efficient scanner is suitable for all applications in which installations or properties must be precisely and quickly measured from various perspectives. Thanks to its lightweight carbon fibre body, the FARO Freestyle3D weighs less than a kilogramme, rendering it extremely portable and mobile.

Date:27th-28th May 2015

FARO over the moon with NASA Rocket Sled Scan

Mobile 3D laser applications stand for precision, innovation and speed. Such as architecture, automotive, earth science, manufacturing or forensics can benefit from mobile laser scanning technology, all of which is set to be demonstrated at the FARO 3D Documentation Conference 2015 on the 21st-22nd of May in Böblingen, Stuttgart.

The international conference will see the coming together of experts and enthusiasts from around the world for the 5th time. The common denominator is the current 3D laser scanning technology – beyond their disciplinary boundaries. For example what do the the US space agency NASA, laser scanning technology and architecture have in common? Aplenty according to a lecture by Larry Klein Kemper AIA, Lanmar Services from Texas, USA at our 3D Documentation Conference “Motor World”.

Renowned architect Larry Klein Kemper, with a focus on BIM, made a name for himself in both Europe and America as the mastermind of animation, rendering and computer modelling.

NASA is known for its exceptional developments and spaceships, of which often ensue exceptional structures.  Disused vehicles such as an oversized rocket sled should simply be documented and be kept as exhibition pieces and 3D models for museums. Larry Klein Kemperis set to show how the large NASA Rocket sled precise point clouds are formed outside with the help of the FARO Focus 3D X 330.

NASA - Rocket sled

The freestyle then starts and the data is transferred in exact geometry. The so-called “Auto Extraction of Geometry” has recently significantly developed, says Larry Klein Kemper – thanks to new software components. The speaker presents two promising possibilities regarding the auto extraction and continues by showing the advantages and limitations of doing so.

The interdisciplinary exchange is very important for the 3D Conference, IT meets film and the software industry meets architecture and transportation planning. Prominent keynote speakers and  first hand reports on current projects. Individual priorities and issues are addressed in the afternoon workshops, including areas such as: Automotive, Conservation and BIM (Building Information Modeling).

The accompanying exhibition with a variety of 3D exhibitors and current software developments rounds off the course of events. An attractive recreational program is also available for the 3D enthusiasts. More information and details can be found here!
