US: FARO has announced the release of the advanced BuildIT 2019 software suite. BuildIT 2019 represents the logical evolution of the industry-proven BuildIT platform, which has provided exceptional value across a variety of industries. It offers three individual products, each specifically designed for the most challenging quality inspection, manufacturing and assembly or construction applications. Each product includes the most flexible and intuitive user interface in the industry.
While the BuildIT 2019 solution suite is tightly integrated with FARO® hardware products to enable a best-in-class FARO® solution experience, it also enables consistent, high-quality outcomes for non-FARO hardware products.
BuildIT Metrology 2019
BuildIT Metrology 2019 elevates the standard for workflow optimization and productivity for alignment, inspection, and build applications by incorporating key customer learnings from the previous generation that include:
- Point cloud alignment and registration up to 10 times faster and file size reduction for analyses by up to 70%
- Improved robustness of GD&T evaluation using feature-specific extraction settings for analysis
- Dynamic reporting that automatically pre-populates analysis reports and reduces report preparation time
- Advanced automation capabilities for creating repeatable, guided, automated workflows
BuildIT Projector 2019
BuildIT Projector 2019 allows manufacturers to plan and operate imaging laser projection and verification workflows to improve the quality and speed of assembly processes. Together with the FARO TracerSI Imaging Laser Projector, it is a core component of the first and only all-in-one solution for laser-assisted templating and verification.
Included standard in the first generation were groundbreaking features as In-Process Verification, Feature-Based Alignment, and Foreign Object & Debris Detection. BuildIT Projector 2019 enhances these features to create a completely new, operator-friendly paradigm that includes:
- Report generation that clearly identifies completed tasks and the results of In-Process Verification.
- Automatic re-alignment of the laser projector where BuildIT Projector detects that the base part has moved
- A more intuitive user experience through a variety of enhancements, including setup and operation through a joystick controller
BuildIT Construction 2019
The previous generation version of BuildIT was the first consolidated software and hardware solution designed from the ground up as an end-to-end, fully integrated Building Lifecycle Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) management tool. BuildIT 2019 offers a unique set of value-added enhancements that include:
- A comprehensive Tank Analysis Package to determine and identify critical issues in the plant facility that support faster modification and renovation
- Significant reduction in on-site cycle time from laser scan projection data preparation to 3D visualization
- Streamlined raw scan import process with the Scan Import feature that automatically detects targets and facilitates faster alignment with the software
- Numerous other workflow efficiency improvements that include file size reduction, faster rendering and clipping box functionality
“We are in the business of making best-in-class software that enables best-in-class solutions,” stated Vito Marone, Senior Director 3D Solutions. “The entire BuildIT suite is leveraged from our cutting-edge 3D metrology capability derived from 20 years of proven expertise in delivering best-in-class measurement solutions to the manufacturing industry. As such, BuildIT 2019 is central for both our customers and users of other hardware products to derive the highest level of performance that the hardware itself supports.”
