Business Value of BuildIT Projector

Increase Efficiency

The ability to create automated, guided, repeatable workflows directly from CAD models streamlines manufacturing and building processes. These workflows can easily be performed even by inexperienced users.

Maximize Quality

Laser-guided sequences and part placement, along with in-process verification and manufacturing process control, allow operators to construct and assemble correctly the first time, every time.

Minimize Cost

Eliminating the creation and maintenance of specific hard-tooling and templates for a variety of parts keeps costs down. Digital files can simply be created and shared. A laser templating solution with in-process verification significantly reduces potential scrap and rework.

Solve Unique Challenges

Multiple FARO hardware devices can be combined to deliver unique solutions solving complex customer challenges (e.g., ability to see results in real life with projections derived from measurements).

BuildIT Projector Performance


The World’s Most Complete Imaging Laser Projector Software

BuildIT Projector is the all-in-one software that helps you plan, generate and operate laser templating and verification workflows. Built on the popular BuildIT Metrology platform that has served manufacturers for over 20 years, BuildIT Projector enables the powerful and industry-unique features of FARO Tracer Laser Projectors.

BuildIT Projector Features

Projector Planner

Import 3D CAD files for generating projection sequencing and part placement workflows.

Projection-assisted Assembly

Easily place and align parts according to layered projection plans.

Feature-based (targetless) Alignment

Compare known features of an object to the CAD model for alignment purposes in a process that’s faster and easier than the setup for laser-guided assembly.

In-process Verification

Use quality-assurance checkpoints during and after critical assembly processes.

Foreign Object and Debris (FOD) Detection

Enhance quality assurance.

3D Metrology Applications


Fast, Accurate Production, Fabrication and Assembly

Rely on Tracer 3D Laser Projectors for any assembly guidance or positioning need, especially in high-volume production. The aerospace and defense industries rely on the technology for composite part layup, system bracket placement, rib and stringer placement, paint templating and more. The automotive and heavy equipment industries use it for precision placement, weld locations, production line and robot station layouts and precision table applications, among others.
