FARO Focus3D Pharmacy Sweep

f

With 2,800 stores, the DM pharmacy is one of Europe’s largest supermarket retail brands and is continuing to grow by around 10% annually.

In order to allow efficient building management, DM has measured the premises of its 1,350 German stores. To ensure the data was captured efficiently, quickly and accurately, the company opted for a solution using 3D laser scanners.

Complete documentation of the store areas and ancillary rooms enable optimum management of the areas, while shelf planning and modification measures can be arranged efficiently.

With the three-dimensional measurement, the joiners obtained the very latest store data, allowing for new photographic counters to be planned precisely in advance and their individual elements to be fitted accurately.

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.

Vivienne Westwood and ScanLab: The First Ever Laser Scanned Photo-shoot

Architecture, law-enforcement, petrochemical plants and even Felix Baumgartner’s “jump from space”, Laser Scanning has been applied in a variety of ways. And now the first ever laser scanned photo-shoot has been documented.

Vivienne Westwood and London studio ScanLab have teamed up to produce the laser scan of the photo-shoot, with ScanLab able to produce a high resolution point cloud of data of the set. The photo-shoot took place over one day and produced some very interesting results.
