CAD-Based Inspection

Portable CMMs from FARO® simplify the implementation of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and provide efficient, easy-to-use solutions for CAD-based 3D inspections and nominal comparisons.

With their versatile contact and non-contact measuring capabilities, tools such as the FaroArm, FARO ScanArm, and FARO Laser Tracker can utilize CAD overlays to check complex geometry against design or CAD comparison to evaluate deviations in surface form and ensure every part is machined to an exacting tolerance.

3D Scanning the Past at the Smithsonian

3D scanning is a rapidly advancing technology that maps real-world objects onto 3D computer models. The applications of 3D scanning are numerous, and 3D scanning is seeing increasing adoption for applications such as quality control and assurance. But today, we’re going to step outside the realm of manufacturing to discuss how 3D scanning is used in the world of GLAM: Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums.

Jackson Jonson Enterprise Builds Custom Services Using the FaroArm

“Jackson Jonson Enterprise was started with the FaroArm in mind; we have custom-built the service we offer to the public around the capabilities we have gained. Because of how new we are, we haven’t so much replaced a process with the FaroArm as hit the ground running offering services not possible without the FaroArm,” says Bradley Smith, Jackson Jonson Enterprise’s General Manager.

Ariel Saves Countless Hours of Inspection Using a Family of FARO Solutions

“Using FARO has saved Ariel countless hours of inspection time. The capabilities these devices offer really have no counterpart with other CMM equipment and provide us functions we did not have prior to acquiring them.”

Marianna Airmotive Uses a FARO Laser Tracker to Reduce Repair Turnaround Time from Weeks to Days

“The FARO Laser Tracker’s ability to provide real-time measurements directly against the CAD data enables engineers to instantly visualize deviations from the nominal. The Tracker has dramatically reduced the time required to certify large parts, tooling and machinery while also resulting in substantial quality improvements.”
