Germany: FARO Technologies has released FARO CAM2 Measure 10.3, its newest software for the FaroArm, FARO Laser ScanArm and FAROLaser Tracker.
CAM2 Measure 10.3 can be used with all of FARO’s major metrology hardware, such as the FARO ScanArm for CAD-to-Part analysis, and is suited for tasks such as the inspection of free and complex forms and even soft or flexible materials that are difficult to inspect with a tactile system.
New features such as point cloud registration, cross section analysis, deviation markers and the enhanced live colour scan, support and boost the user experience in data collection and point cloud analysis. The Cross Section Analysis feature allows for the 2D analysis of scan data over a well-defined area of the CAD. Users can extract dimensions (radius, angle, height) for analysis, add markers to define locations where labels will show deviations and set the best view for reporting.
With the point cloud registration functionality, users can merge two or more spatially disjointed point clouds from a common part. This is very useful when the user has to move an already scanned part to a new position for scanning from a different side, or move the scanning device to a new location and scan from there without the need to reference the new device’s position. The deviation markers feature allows users to pre-set the areas where detailed analysis will be needed. The software simplifies the measurement process by guiding operators to those areas where the data must be collected.
The live colour scan function increases the efficiency of the scanning process. Users can quickly scan free-form parts and check their quality in real time. The software provides immediate feedback with different colours deviations from the CAD model during the scanning process, supporting an easy and prompt identification of inconsistencies. No additional post scan analysis is required.
