With the opening of the Intergeo 2010 we launched yesterday the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D which is five times smaller, four times lighter than its predecessor and available at a very affordable price. [Read more …]
Come to our booth 1B.112 in hall 11.1 and discover what’s new in the world of laser scanning. FARO will also demonstrate the new version 4.7 of SCENE which incorporates the new ‘one-click’ Web-Share functionality. The SCENE Web-Share feature allows for easy and secure sharing of scan data via the Internet.
You will also meet our software partners on the stand.
We are happy to welcome you on our booth and we offer you free entry tickets to visit us.
Non-Contact 3D Digitizers work without touching the object and without damaging it in any way. Once obtained, the object data can be stored digitally or output in analog form so it can be processed and utilized for a wide variety of purposes.
This is a revolutionary process because we can now digitally record artifacts and object previously unmeasurable because of their fragility. Optical measurement systems, or non-contact scanners, are ideally suited for multi-dimensional imaging and digitization of art objects and cultural heritage materials. The object data collected may be used to conserve art and cultural treasures, for study and research purposes, and as a powerful marketing tool.
AGP had carried out 3D coordinate mapping projects on almost 400 buildings in Europe when they accepted a new challenge in 2008: to create 3D plans required for restoration of the World Heritage Site Abbey of Mont Saint Michel (France) – in less than 3 months!
When a culture wishes to preserve its heritage, its first area of focus is typically the preservation of historical objects and heritage sites that provide a tangible link with the past. Until recently, restoring historical treasures to their original form required guesswork. If an outdoor sculpture suffered weather damage, the lack of a record of its spatial data made its restoration imprecise. But today, preservationists are using 3D laser surveying to gather the precise data of historical treasures to aid in their potential restoration. Laser surveying-also referred to as laser-scanning-is traditionally associated with the engineering and manufacturing industries, where it is used to create new parts and products and troubleshoot existing products to resolve defects. But the same data capture abilities that make 3D laser scanning surveying valuable to engineers and manufacturers also makes it valuable to preservationists.
