FARO Plant Ready Package for AutoCAD®

 Laser scanning is still an emerging technology, which places high demands on equipment and software. This bundle combines the most advanced hardware with the most sophisticated software into one all-inclusive package for a seamless workflow.

FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X Series

3d laser scanner

The smallest and lightest laser scanners on the market - Focus3D X Series are ideal tools for indoor and outdoor applications. The fast and accurate Focus3D Laser Scanners offer everything you expect from professional 3D laser scanners – with FARO’s established and well-known level of simplicity.

  • Focus3D X 330 offers extra long range - 330 meters,
  • Focus3D X 130 is a mid-range device offering precise scanning up to 130 meters.
  • The HDR imaging function and high-resolution photographs deliver realistic and true-to-detail scan results with spectacular image quality.
  • The Focus3D X 30 Laser Scanner was specially designed to fit the need of short-range and interior scanning applications, capturing data up to 30 meters.

All Focus3D X series scanner types offer the ability to perform scanning even in bright sunlight.

SCENE Software

3d laser scanner

SCENE processes and manages scanned data easily and efficiently by using automatic object recognition as well as scan registration and positioning. SCENE can also generate high-quality colorized scans very quickly, while providing the tools for automated target-less scan positioning.

  • Once SCENE has prepared the scan data, you can commence evaluation and further processing right away.
  • Scan projects can even be published on a web server at the touch of a button.
  • The new SCENE WebShare feature allows easy access to laser scans with a standard Internet browser.

PointSense Plant

3d laser scanner

Plant engineers can process point clouds directly into AutoCAD® . Industry standard piping systems and structural steel elements can then be extracted efficiently. The resulting models can be converted directly into plant design programs such as Plant 3D® , MEP® , CADWorx ® , AutoPLANT® etc. PointSense Plant has all of the comprehensive tools and functionality to model, manage and process 3D scan data in AutoCAD® .

  • Intuitive routines for modelling piping and structural systems from 3D laser scans
  • Intelligent shape extraction assisted by industry standard catalogues
  • Determine precise flange tie-in points
  • Analyze pipes, tanks, vessels and foundations for deformation
  • Calculate tankvolumes at various intervals while accounting for deadwood
