What Customers Are Saying

  • "FARO hardware with Rithm workflows have created a streamlined application for concrete analysis through laser scanning by eliminating the time and money spent using several software, combining the capabilities all into one. These solutions allow for consistency from start to finish, allowing for a user friendly, high quality end product in a fraction of the time and cost."
    Josh Engelbrech | VDC Engineer
  • "The speed, mobility, and simplicity of the FARO laser scanning system allows us to not only capture complex projects with ease, but also provides a better medium for analysis and concept driven design both internally and for all the clients we serve in the AEC market."
    Jonathan Coco | Advanced Measurements and Modeling Department Leader

Here's How!

Step 1: Scan

The FARO Focus3D X 330 is the smallest, lightest and most affordable laser scanner for architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) projects. Capture as-built measurements of complex geometries and structures within minutes for a complete recording of the current physical status of buildings and construction sites.

  • Extended scanning range of 330m reduces scans per project
  • Scanning capability in direct sunlight provides outdoor performance
  • Integrated GPS receiver correlates individuals scans during post processing
  • 50% noise reduction delivers improved scan quality
  • Class 1 “eye-safe” laser guarantees safety throughout the project
  • Portability and easy set-up facilitates scanning of extensive job-sites and buildings

Step 2: Process

SCENE Software is specifically designed to easily process, register and manage numerous scans of construction projects. This point-cloud software is extremely user-friendly and allows users to quickly navigate through projects by utilizing automatic registration methods, thus reducing manual post-processing editing.

  • Automatic registration function dramatically saves time during manual post-processing
  • Easily geo-reference scan data to project coordinates using building control points or survey data
  • Cloud-to-Cloud Registration identifies overlapping scan coordinates to automatically align scans
  • Perform simple measurements, 3D visualization, and exporting with an intuitive interface
  • Using SCENE Plug-In Apps, perform application specific tasks such as floor flatness analysis, steel beam deflection, and quantity or volumetric analysis
  • Option of publishing scan projects online for client collaboration

Step 3: Deliver

Building Owners and Facility Managers can reap the benefits of a project which was laser scanned at various critical stages by implementing Webshare Cloud. When scanning is performed before concrete pours and before walls go up, critical infrastructure like rebar, post tension cables, and MEP, can be viewed using a safe and secure alternative for storing and sharing scanning data with different project partners worldwide.

  • Guaranteed security by encrypted communication and encrypted storage of data
  • Easy viewing and sharing of construction projects globally with clients
  • Cloud-based solution eliminates the need of software installation
  • Designed and supported to operate with mobile devices in the field
  • Functions such as annotation, distance and area measurements can be done online
  • Scalable infrastructure permits customizable storage capacity as needed
  • Architecture

    Architecture is both the process and the product of planning, designing and constructing of buildings and other physical structures. It includes interior design.

  • Construction

    Construction comprises of civil, building and interior projects as well as new builds, repairs, additions, alterations, and erection of pre-fabricated buildings or structures on the site.

  • Engineering

    Engineering pertains solely to the construction industry, and includes MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning).

  • Facility Management

    Facility Management is the process of installing, operating, upgrading and maintaining assets to a building or facility through the use of 3D documentation.

  • Heritage

    Heritage deals with the preservation, rehabilitation, and restoration process aimed at safeguarding characteristics of a cultural resource so as to retain its heritage value and extend its physical life in the future.

  • Surveying

    Surveying is the technique, profession, and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them.
