for SCENE 5.1 and higher
The FARO Area Measurement App is designed to provide simple to use tools to measure areas. The user defines the circumference of the area by simply clicking onto the desired corner points in the 3D view of SCENE.
This plug-in offers 3 different modes:
Area of a freely defined polygon. The plug-in projects the corner points onto an averaged plane of which then the area is calculated.
Area of a polygon on a pre-defined plane. Allows for using any plane from your scan project on which the picked corner points will be projected.
Define intersection plane and circumference by picking scan points directly in 3D view.
All calculated areas are stored within the scan project. SCENE is handling them similarly to its documentation objects which allows the user for even adding comments or hyperlinks to the areas.
