Rome Church Restoration Using FARO 3D Scanning

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.
