Virtual Simulation

Movie producers and video game designers can rapidly scan and import entire movie sets, characters, and objects into various CGI platforms using 3D laser scanning technology from FARO®. This captures scenes considerably faster and in better detail than traditional techniques.

The FARO Laser Scanner is a 3D documentation solution offering point cloud data acquisition. Its 3D modeling capability allows producers to map out camera angles, special effects, and storylines. Applying the techniques of computer-generated imagery (CGI) and virtual reality they can create never-before-seen effects within an incredibly short time.

Digitally Documenting the Most Populated “City” in West Virginia

“The FARO Laser Scanner allows us to quickly document the environment while not disturbing or manipulating any features or objects. Additionally, we are afforded the freedom of selecting each scan location and point density that best fits the particular requirements of a project.”

Anderson & Associates Reduces Tunnel Interior Measurement Time by 60% Using Laser Scanners

The Heartland Corridor is the most ambitious railroad engineering project of the last century. The project required increasing the vertical clearance of 28 tunnels and removing 24 overhead obstructions. Anderson & Associates (A&A) was hired to document the tunnels in order to check final clearances and provide a record for maintenance.

Reconstructing Dinosaur Fossils Using the FARO Laser Scanner

Paleontologists from the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History are working towards reconstructing the anatomy of missing bones of a juvenile Apatosaurus. With approximately only 15% of the bones collected, scientists look to digitally reconstruct the rest of the bone structure using the model of the adult Apatosaurus currently on display in the Museum. Reverse engineering the large skeleton would be the best solution.
