FARO, the 3D measurement and imaging solutions for product design announces the first arm-based solution to include high resolution, 3D color scanning capability. This exciting introduction includes full color 3D scanning as standard, out-of-the-box functionality in the new FARO Design ScanArm 2.5C (DSA 2.5C) (http://www.faro.com/DesignScanArm/in).
The Design ScanArm 2.5C is compatible with the FARO 8-Axis FaroArm system, which effectively doubles the arm reach and substantively improves the ease of use, is specifically designed to address design challenges across a range of industries including Computer graphics, industrial machinery, auto manufacturing and engineering services. A color 3D representation is the perfect baseline for product visualisations and special effects.
This innovative leap forward enables parts and objects to be reconstructed and visualised as vividly as they appear in the real world. The true-to-life functionality not only allows design professionals to proceed with an even higher level of confidence but also, as a result, accelerates the completion of important projects. Faster end to end project cycle time is also supported and enhanced by rapid scanning color capability of up to 240,000 points per second.
Consistent with the FARO commitment to optimising ease of use through advanced ergonomics, the Design ScanArm 2.5C, like its predecessor the Design ScanArm 2.0, is available in three highly maneuverable arm lengths—2.5m, 3.5m and 4m. This ensures that end users can select the option that optimally fits with the specific design objectives for their projects. Furthermore, hot swappable batteries ensure that the user can bring the scan to the project rather than needing to bring the project to the scan.
