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.

  • Exploring Endless Possibilities with Virtual Reality

    Virtual Reality: Beijing Computing Center
    “Currently, we put our FARO Laser Scanner to good use rather frequently,” said Mr. Xiang Lei, an engineer from the Virtual Reality Division at BCC. He explained, “So far, we have used it to scan the Great Wall and the large dinosaur at the Natural History Museum. Other more typical applications include the development of a tour navigation guide for Dajue Temple Scenic Area, and the simulation of water hammer effect in thermal stations.”
  • FARO Laser Scanner Creates a Wealth of Opportunities for Event Company

    Architecture & Construction: Shanghai Jinwei Event Management Co., Ltd
    Now, with the China369hui portal, shortlisted MICE venues can be viewed in all their realistic 3D glory, along with accurate dimensional measurements. Event planners can evaluate and select the venue of choice in the comfort of their offices. This was the very vision that Chairman Xu had for Jinwei.
  • Scientists Build High Precision 3D Model of Gomantong Caves

    Research: Gomantong Caves
    Having had prior experience with the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D, Prof. Buchroithner was fully aware of its capabilities. He shared, “Clearly, we needed a device that was rugged, lightweight, and capable of capturing accurate data even with low ambient lighting. My prior encounter with the Focus3D gave me full confidence that the new Focus3D X 330 would deliver the results we needed. In fact, it surpassed our expectations in several ways!”
