FARO Introduces Next Generation Focus3D Laser Scanner for 3D Documentation

With the WLAN remote control, the FARO Focus3D presents a very helpful new feature which allows users to start, stop, view or download scans remotely. Examples include scanning from difficult to reach positions like high posts, inside tanks, sewage canals.

Moreover the FARO Focus3D can now be equipped with three new adapters useful for specific applications. The Automation Adapter allows the Focus3D to be mounted on any support like a fixed post, robot arm, rail etc.; the Helical Adapter for mobile scanning builds on the Automation Adapter, but adds two pins to fix the scanner body in a stable position, suitable for the roughest rides that may be encountered in mobile scanning; finally the TMS-Adapter has been developed especially for surveying in super-fast tunnelling applications.

SCENE WebShare 4.9, FARO’s Internet sharing browser, will provide measurement tools and added information via Documentation Objects. Scans shared using the WebShare functionality can be directly analysed on the browser: in the overview map it is possible to accurately measure distances and surfaces, while in the panorama view of the software you can easily measure distances between points.

Visitors of the Intergeo at the NürnbergMesse in Germany can find out all about the new technology for 3D Documentation at the FARO stand (A41) in Hall 6 from 27th to 29th September.
