Business Value of the Focus Swift

Reduce Rework and Material Waste

Knowing the exact as-built conditions of your facility allows you to make sure your designs fit the first time. And monitoring the construction progress regularly and frequently in 3D helps you identify issues before they become costly and delay your schedule.

Manage Large and Complex Projects and Facilities with Confidence

The FARO Swift system allows you to capture the existing conditions of large project sites or existing facilities with incredible performance and precision. Whether you’re working in facility management or construction, you’ll will “know” what is going on in a fraction of the time it takes you today.

Make Informed Decisions Quickly

With the information at your team’s fingertips, they’ll be equipped to make smarter decisions faster and stay ahead of any problems.

Effective Communication with Remote Teams

Swift allows building managers to document complex projects with confidence, ensuring key stakeholders have access to accurate and up-to-date information, even if those people don’t have direct technical experience.

Focus Swift Performance


The First Fully Integrated 3D Mobile Mapping System 

As its name suggests, the Focus Swift is fast. Depending on accuracy requirements, the innovative device can take mobile scans of large, complex areas up to 10 times faster than traditional stationary scans. The design combines the capabilities of FARO Focus Laser Scanners, the ScanPlanTM 2D Handheld Mapper and revolutionary SCENE Software for seamless, flexible data capturing. It’s the laser mapping solution you’ve been looking for.

Focus Swift Features

Compact, Travel-friendly Design

Use the lightweight Focus Swift wherever you need it. The carbon-fiber tripod, three-wheeled dolly and two carry-on-size cases make travel and setup easy.

Software Compatibility

Integrate with FARO As-BuiltTM Software, BuildIT Construction Software and WebShare - plus any CAD system with 3D point cloud capabilities.

Intuitive, Ergonomic Design

Use easily with comfortable handles and simple push operation.

Construction Site Readiness

Use the Focus Swift indoor or outdoor, for any stage in the life of a building, thanks to its wide operating temperature range, its cable-free, rugged design, and its intuitive, pragmatic setup.

Innovative Automation

Swift streamlines and simplifies the registration process.

Color Scans

Along with speed and accuracy the Focus Swift now integrates the Ricoh Theta Z1 360° camera, allowing users to take 10-20 second colorized anchor scans that require little to no manual registration. With color, 3D point clouds provide more complete and realistic detail.

Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Applications 

Fast, Accurate As-built Capture and Modeling

With the Focus Swift on the construction site, inside a facility, or outside a facility, you can use your smartphone to control your laser scanner. Scan the interior of any building — factories, office buildings, hospitals, retail shops and more — for BIM and facility management. It’s laser mapping made easy. See all as-built capture and modeling applications >

Digital Twin for Asset and Facility Management
