FARO Introduces New Software for Perfect Scanner Results

Published: Tuesday, February 18, 2014 - 15:34

(FARO Technologies: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO Technologies Inc., the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement, imaging, and realization technology, has released its most advanced scan processing software solution, SCENE 5.2.

In SCENE 5.2, 3D visualizations are rendered in even greater detail with the new Super Sampling function. Apart from better sharpness, the software also improves 3D views by reducing color differences due to inhomogeneous light conditions at different scanning positions. The Color Balancing tool seamlessly smoothens the transition between individual scans with overlapping areas.

Additionally, the SCENE 5.2 is equipped to process data more efficiently than ever before. The new software comes with an homogenization tool that eliminates coordinate points with a distance of less than 1.5 mm from each other. This smart function reduces the volume of data by an average of 20 percent, with no noticeable compromise to the visualization. Users can enjoy considerably faster exports of scan data from 3D view, and imports into third-party software.

Other new functions exclusive to the SCENE 5.2 include Multi Clipping Boxes and Multi Orthophoto, which provide users with more options to manipulate scan data. The software’s ability to recognize natural registration marks and to perform fine registration have been optimized to boost performance in this new version.

Furthermore, with the new WebShare service from FARO, users can save 3D documentation data in the cloud and share scanned projects with project partners around the world, without having to worry about a dedicated server, limited data storage, or number of authorized users. Besides the highest security, SCENE WebShare Cloud also offers an interface optimized for mobile devices.

“The FARO SCENE 5.2 is a powerful software that will give users the perfect scanner results,” says Oliver Burkler, senior product manager at FARO. “Its new features will definitely enhance the productivity and scan quality of individuals who require 3D documentation in their work, whether in land survey, heritage preservation, creation of virtual reality, or others.”

SCENE 5.2 fully complements the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330, and the software’s new features capitalizes on the device’s extended range of measurement.
