FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement technology today announced the release of SCENE 5.0, the latest in the company’s line of point cloud capture processing software for the Focus3D. For the first time, SCENE users can view their scans in true stereoscopic 3D for unprecedented levels of realism. Automatic fine registration eliminates the need for artificial targets in many cases when piecing together multiple scans, and the new Project Database enables enhanced levels of networking between users.

SCENE 5.0 contains automatic fine registration, a new cloud-to-cloud enhancement that reduces or removes the need for the placement of artificial targets in many scanning applications, and significantly reduces post-processing time. Rather than utilizing spheres or checkerboards, the software identifies prominent objects such as corners, edges and other flat structures within the scan and uses them as reference points. These features help to seamlessly meld together multiple scans to form a single, complete point cloud. This new addition, unique to SCENE 5.0, further expedites the merging of scans between remote users.

The Project Database is FARO’s latest way to facilitate scanning project collaboration. This new addition seamlessly stores project information and a step-by-step history of each scanning project. Users may now return to any step in a scanning database, quickly and easily, no matter where they may be in their process. They may also select which details to display on a given project, allowing users to choose which level of detail to display and reducing extraneous data points. SCENE 5.0 also supports the new ASTM E57 industry standard, a manufacturer-independent, binary data exchange format for 3D data. Through this, users may import and export scanning data regardless of the specific product used to capture it.

New for SCENE 5.0, stereoscopic visualization allows users to view their scans on 3D-enabled monitors. The result is an added level of detail and a heightened sense of realism found in major motion pictures. For users in the real estate marketing, construction, renovation and other markets, this 3D viewing feature literally adds new dimensions to their scanning work. “SCENE 5.0 combines ease-of-use, networking and an enhanced 3D experience to deliver a complete scan processing solution,” said Oliver Burkler, Senior Technical Product Manager for the Focus3D.

FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world’s leading provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, announces the next generation of its innovative laser scanner, the Focus3D. Complete with new features that enhance registration and remote functionality, this newest Focus3D offering represents FARO’s most powerful laser scanning solution to date.

Already the smallest and most advanced laser scanner on the market, the Focus3D now includes the new Multi-Sensor hardware feature. It incorporates a compass and height sensor to complement the device’s existing dual axis compensator. The new sensors define height and orientation against a set point for each scan, improving the automatic registration process and reducing post-processing work.

Users can now perform and download scans remotely with the new WLAN remote control included in each new Focus3D. The device may also be equipped with one of three, application-specific adaptors that allow the Focus3D to be mounted to any fixed post or utilized in mobile or super-fast tunnel scanning applications.

SCENE WebShare 4.9, FARO’s internet sharing browser, will provide measurement tools and added information via Documentation Objects. Scans shared using WebShare can be directly viewed on the browser or analyzed with a variety of mapping functions. “We’ve included new features with this latest generation of the Focus3D that we think will make our customers’ lives much easier,” explained FARO CEO, Jay Freeland. “By including new functionality in an already very strong offering, we believe FARO has the most competitive laser scanner on the market.”
