US: FARO Technologies has released its latest software for the FaroArm, FARO Laser ScanArm and FARO Laser Tracker called FARO CAM2 Measure 10.3.
CAM2 Measure 10.3 offers both contact and non-contact metrology solution. New features include point cloud registration, cross section analysis, deviation markers and the enhanced live colour scan. These new capabilities simplify and accelerate the measurement process by guiding operators in their probing and scanning activities.
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.
