Building Information Modeling

With building information modelling (BIM) solutions from FARO quickly becoming an industry standard, it’s no surprise that FARO shapes the way teams work together to communicate, collaborate and solve problems. The result is high quality projects being built more quickly and at a lower cost.

3D laser scanning with the FARO Laser Scanner aids building design at every stage of construction. With this 3D modelling tool you can compare the current 3D building status with the CAD model at any time – a quality control process which eliminates expensive and time-consuming rework.

Greater BIM Applicability with FARO’s 3D Scanning Technology

Survey and Design: SIPPR Engineering Group Co., Ltd.
Within two short years, SIPPR has deployed FARO’s laser scanners extensively in all phases of its 13 industrial and commercial projects. These include earthwork volume calculation, reverse modeling of factories, testing completed buildings, facade engineering, and calculation of construction materials.

FARO Plays a Significant Role in Contributing to Modern Chinese Architecture

Construction: The Third Building Construction Company of China Construction Eighth Engineering Division
CSCEC83 was keen to maintain maximum level of control over construction quality. In order to ensure that all objectives were met, the team decided to adopt a 3D scanning method to compare the data obtained onsite with the building’s blueprint. After a comprehensive analysis of their available choices, CSCEC83 chose to go with the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330.

“Focus3D was first introduced when my research involved 3D scans of the human face,” recalled Dr. Nakamura. “The Focus3D was selected because it was significantly more affordable than other devices. Since then, the range of scan objects rapidly grew to include our university’s roads and buildings. The point cloud data scanning project of the ESCA underground mall is an extension of this.”

Hibiya Acquires Accurate Measurements of Harsh Mechanical Rooms Safely and Quickly with FARO

Civil Engineering: Hibiya Engineering Limited
At the end of 2011, Hibiya Engineering invested in a FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D to facilitate the measurement of existing facilities. Mr. Higashi explained, “With this new device, it now takes us only an hour to measure existing facilities that are due for renovation. Measurement has also been greatly simplified!”
