As-Built Documentation

As-built surveys using 3D laser scanning technology, such as the FARO® Laser Scanner, provide users with detailed point clouds which enable 3D modelling for diverse tasks including building reconstruction, plant layout and enhanced data presentation with augmented reality.

With fast turnaround times on scans of buildings and entire environments, FARO’s 3D laser scanner can deliver fully surfaced CAD models for a variety of industries. Architectural design, civil engineering and construction, facility management, and cultural heritage have all benefited from this 3D FARO solution.

Okumura Sekkei ‘Brings’ Entire Worksites Back as Point Cloud Data

Construction and Civil Engineering: Okumura Sekkei Corporation
“Construction consultants fail in their jobs when they design with no knowledge of the site’s current state,” shared Mr Okumura. “To get around this problem, we obtain scans of the entire site, including its surrounding areas, using a 3D laser scanner. With the point cloud data collected, we can then check the current status of the site in detail as we work on our designs in the office.”

MAC and Nishimatsu Construction Develop Vehicle-Mounted Scanning System with FARO Focus3D

Construction/Civil Engineering/Tunnel Drilling: MAC Co. Ltd.
Drilling precision requires us to secure the design field and suppress surplus drilling (also known as ‘over-digging’) within 50mm. With precision construction control, we can reduce material costs, labor costs, and project duration, as well as improve productivity levels.

Expanding Capabilities with the FARO Laser Scanner

AEC – Construction: AMNEX
Amnex had 2 key requirements when searching for a suitable 3D scanning solution. First, the scanner had to cover a distance range of up to 330 meters. At the same time, data quality was a non-negotiable factor.

3D Documentation of a ‘Vanishing’ Civilization – FARO Helps Preserve Cultural Relics

Heritage: Cultural Heritage Research Institute of Zhejiang University
Professor Diao Changyu, Assistant to the Director, Cultural Heritage Research Institute of Zhejiang University commented, “For exquisite stone artifacts – such as inscriptions, epitaphs, and especially intricate Buddhist stone statues – we found it necessary to use a scanning device. The FARO ScanArm is able to provide a comprehensive scan in just one scanning cycle, even capturing details in areas that are blocked or inaccessible. Overall, we get very good data consistency and it allows us to achieve a higher level of accuracy, which is impressive. Some stone statues have faint intaglio lines, which are very thin, shallow, and almost invisible to the naked eye. Yet, these show up clearly in the monochrome 3D model obtained by the scans. This is a very important technical means for archeology.”
