Coventry, 3rd June 2014 – FARO® Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement, imaging, and realization technology, announced the release of their newest version of laser scanning software, SCENE 5.3, and scan data hosting-service, SCENE WebShare Cloud 1.5.
FARO’s SCENE 5.3 software, for use with the Laser Scanner Focus3D X Series, delivers scan registration by eliminating artificial targets, such as spheres and checkerboards. Users can choose from two available registration methods: ‘Top-View’-based or ‘Cloud-to-Cloud’. ‘Top View’-based registration allows for target-less positioning of scans. In interiors and in built-up areas without reliable GPS pre-positioning of the individual scans, this represents a highly efficient and largely automated method. The second method, ‘Cloud-to-Cloud’ registration, opens up new opportunities for the user to position scans quickly and accurately, even under difficult conditions. In exterior locations with good pre-positioning of the scans, by means of the integrated GPS receiver of the Laser Scanner Focus3D X Series, this is the method of choice for target-less registration.
In addition, the software also offers various new processes that enable the user to respond flexibly to a wide variety of project requirements. For instance, ‘Correspondence Split View’ helps to match similar areas in neighbouring scans by the user to resolve any missing positioning information, and ‘Layout Image Overlay’ allows users to place scan data in its geographical context using image files, CAD drawings, or maps.
Oliver Bürkler, Senior Product Manager 3D Documentation Software, remarked, “SCENE 5.3 is the ideal tool for processing laser scanning projects. FARO’s cloud-based hosting solution, SCENE WebShare Cloud, allows scan projects to be published and shared worldwide via the Internet. The collective upgrades to FARO’s laser scanning software solution, SCENE 5.3 and WebShare Cloud 1.5, make even complex 3D documentation projects faster, more efficient and more effective. “
