Faro Technologies Inc. has released version 4.0 of its 3-D laser scanning software family: Faro Scene, Faro Scout, Faro Scout LT, and Faro Record.
The new version provides intrinsic use of inclination sensor for fast registration, constraint-plane fit for high-accuracy plane positioning, and intelligent contrast adjustment to improve point-cloud visualization. It also simplifies the exporting of slices, allows for the exporting of objects in DXF format, and provides automatic filtering.
The software package is used for viewing, administering, calibrating, filtering, and managing large, 3-D point clouds collected with the company's Laser Scanner LS. Users can choose from English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Italian, and Portuguese.
