FARO is a renowned supplier of high-quality portable coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and 3D imaging devices, FARO technology is used throughout the world for high-precision 3D measurement and scanning. Due to it’s ease of use, accuracy and reliability it has become the measurement of choice across a diverse range of sectors including the Architecture, Construction and Crime scene analysis.
FARO has now extended application of products to new areas. Tracy Hill who worked at the University of Central Lancashire was able to manipulate the FARO Focus 3D x 130 and the FARO Software from here colleagues to allow the creation of a major installation – Sensorium. Given the fact she has never used it before, the ease of use meant that she could experiment and create the effects of visualisation that she was looking for.

We will showcasing our 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 kilogram, rendering it extremely portable and mobile.

We invite you to join us on a FARO Event, supported by the BAM construction and hosted by Bespoke careers.This is also in association with Digital Construction Week.
This will take place on the 19th of October at the Bespoke London office in St Johns Square.
Visitors will be able to hear from our two speakers Mark Taylor from BAM and Chris Palmer fom FARO. Mark is responsible for implementation of Information Management processes and digital construction tools nationally for BAM Construct UK. Chris Palmer is a RICS Chartered Building Surveyor who specialises in 3D Data capture and BIM. Over the last 10 years, Chris has worked within the construction industry as a surveyor, architectural designer and project manager, working as a lead consultant on a diverse range of project types and values
Location: 58 St Johns Square
Time: 18:30 – 20:30
On the agenda for the speakers include;
Integrating Digital Technologies into Construction Workflows – An overview of how BAM Construction integrate digital information and technologies into traditional design and construction workflows
Laser Scanning for Construction Verification- A look at projects involving the FARO Laser Scanner and how throughout the construction process it could improve the reliability and accuracy of measurements
Automated Modelling and Feature Extraction from Point Clouds – Also a topic of conversation is a live deomonstration of the FARO 3D Software tools and how it could automatically generate 3D geometry from laser scan data.

Check out the new video from one of our 3D Documentation Engineers Si Horton!
The above video covers areas such as:
FARO Technologies presents a faster and more intuitive point cloud to Revit model workflow. Taking as-built to BIM just got easier. Finally, more efficient laser scan workflows directly inside of Revit for family wall extraction, wall angle adjustment and correction, continuous wall mending, real 3D point cloud snapping, ortho image creation and more.
Webinars: Introduction of PointSense for Revit
This 60min webinar introduces you the new FARO 3D Software, PointSense for Revit.
PointSense for Revit accelerates and simplifies the analysis and design of point cloud data directly in Autodesk Revit. It contributes to the successful integration of as-built buildings in existing or new BIM projects.
During the Webinar the following topics will be covered:

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.
Below is a perfect example of the Focus’s range, even in direct sunlight as well as it’s easy positioning with the integrated GPS receiver, as it scans the San Mamés Stadium, home to Athletic Bilbao.
As-built surveys using 3D laser scanning technology, such as the FARO Laser Scanner, provide users with detailed point clouds which enable 3D modelling for diverse tasks including building reconstruction, plant layout and enhanced data presentation with augmented reality.
With fast turnaround times on scans of buildings and entire environments, FARO’s 3D laser scanner can deliver fully surfaced CAD models for a variety of industries. Architectural design, civil engineering and construction, facility management, and cultural heritage have all benefited from this 3D FARO solution.
Located in Dresden, Germany, kubit has been developing field-proven software products to enable and simplify the use of real world objects in CAD applications since 1999. Initially launched to link total stations directly to AutoCAD, today kubit is the industry leader in providing tools to integrate 3D laser scan data with CAD environments such as Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD. kubit’s software is hardware independent, giving customers the flexibility to utilize any hardware offering, thus ensuring maximum productivity.
“The acquisition of kubit is an exciting step in FARO’s strategy to develop integrated, disruptive 3D documentation product offerings for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction market,” stated Jay Freeland, FARO’s President and CEO. “By adding kubit’s products to our portfolio, customers now have significantly enhanced software options to serve a vast array of point cloud modeling, analysis needs, and measurement capabilities with very high connectivity to the Autodesk suite of products.”
