Digital Modelling Made Efficient with FARO Design ScanArm

Digital Modelling Made Efficient with FARO Design ScanArm

The rapid advancement of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies have led to mounting interest in topics such as artificial intelligence and VR. Behind these fascinating technologies, other than its reliance on big data analysis and data-based deep learning, are service providers who hold true to the foundations of data-processing.

Changsha MouRui Technology Co., Ltd. (MouRui Technology) is a service provider for 3D digital model mobile technology that specializes in product digitization total solutions for businesses and individual users. The company is committed to helping its customers create digital models of physical objects on mobile terminals.

Mr. Liu Zijing, Director, MouRui Technology, “As long as our customers come to us with a need, regardless of whether an object is as small as a screw or as large as a car, we will provide the digital modelling service!”
 

Better 3D Modelling Methods, Greater Efficiencies in Digitization

Previously, MouRui Technology attempted to use traditional manual modelling methods and other scanning equipment for digital modelling of physical objects. These methods proved to be inefficient and yielded models that lacked precision. With an increasing business volume and stricter requirements from their customers, MouRui Technology had to seek out a way to increase the efficiency of their processes and meet their changing business needs. They had to search for a way to overcome the challenge that certain shapes and materials posed when using manual modelling, and how it often offered unsatisfactory results.

MouRui Technology decided to purchase the FARO Design ScanArm in 2017. This 3D measurement system offers both high-resolution 3D scanning and high-precision contact measurements for basic geometry. The FARO Design ScanArm features the optically-superior blue laser technology to accurately capture 3D data on object surfaces, to help users rapidly digitize physical objects. In addition, the device is also able to easily design or modify reverse engineered models, create manufacturing-ready CAD models, and verify design intent of prototype products.
 

Reliable Scanning Quality

Although MouRui Technology serves a diverse group of customers — including artwork suppliers, furniture design suppliers, and virtual reality providers — and have varying requirements for their 3D models, the demand for quality remains unchanged. The details and degree of realism are key requirements for validation by during delivery.

Mr. Liu shared, “Using the FARO Design ScanArm for data acquisition allows us to achieve lifelike scanning results, which yielded an improved user experience when combined with MouRui Technology’s Auto Mobile Reality Technology (AMRT) for compression processing — exactly what our customers wanted!”

The FARO Design ScanArm has the ability to seamlessly scan challenging materials without the need for a spray or scan targets, which reduces the processing time and shortens the entire work cycle.

In the past, the modelling of items like clothes was challenging due to the texture of the fabrics, the natural folds, and the details of corners — all of which affect how realistic the end product would look. 3D modelling with manual methods would have been laborious and time consuming. Mr. Liu highlighted, “With the FARO Design ScanArm, we are now able to improve the speed and accuracy of data acquisition on objects with a complex exterior profile. This also includes objects we were unable to model in the past using manual methods. As a result, we’ve managed to improve our efficiency tremendously and also create more business opportunities.”

The FARO Design ScanArm’s extra wide scan stripe and fast frame rate provides expanded laser coverage for fast point cloud capture, making it easier to digitize complex, organic, and irregular physical objects. This helps MouRui Technology to improve the efficiency of their processes and eliminate any difficulty working with objects of certain shapes or materials.

In addition, the FARO Design ScanArm is lightweight and portable, making it easy to transport. It also features a simple user interface, built-in balancer, and an ergonomic design that caters for one-man operation, regardless of skill level or 3D scanning experience.

“If you can imagine it, it can be done”

Even as change is the only constant in this Internet era, MouRui Technology’s commitment to becoming a big data provider remains unchanged.

Besides fulfilling its customers’ application requirements for digital modelling and processing, MouRui Technology has also made use of its technological advantages to actively expand its capabilities in data processing. Its self-developed SaaS service platform, Laozi Cloud, automates data-processing and compression using AMRT, and transforms digital models of physical objects for display on mobile phones. These models could only be displayed on computer terminals previously, but MouRui Technology has now enabled users to conveniently browse the information on mobile phones.

To enrich its capabilities, MouRui Technology is using the FARO Design ScanArm to expand its 3D model database and has developed its own dedicated platform, Sai Wu Quan, to host and display all its 3D models. Besides data generation, data processing and final 3D model displays, the company now offers comprehensive technical ecosystem services. For MouRui Technology, the future of digitizing physical objects is no longer bounded by limitations.

Commenting on the company’s experience with FARO, Mr. Liu said, “The decision to partner FARO hinged on the precision its solutions offered, and its products were considered best in its class. From product quality to after sales services, FARO has lived up to its trustworthy brand image and demonstrated utmost professionalism.”
