The FARO As-Built platform delivers innovative and profitable tools for complete and efficient conversion of reality capture data into parametric models e.g. for AutoCAD® Software or Autodesk® Revit® design tools.
3D scanner data are very large and CAD programs in general and the display of point clouds in particular have high demands on the hardware. The computer should be as fast as possible, should have as much RAM as possible and a powerful graphic card.
|As-Built for AutoCAD® Software||Minimum Requirements|
|Platform||As-Built for AutoCAD® is compatible with AutoCAD® and its associated products (e.g. Civil 3D, Architecture, Map 3D) for versions 2017 to 2020.
Should you be using older Autodesk products, please contact your FARO representative.
|Operating system||Dependent on the version of AutoCAD® being used, 64-bit systems only.|
|Hardware requirements||Graphics card as recommended by Autodesk®, RAM at least 8GB, better 32GB or more, processor at least 2.5GHz, better 3-4GHz and 4-8 cores, SSD for larger projects; Laser scanner type to suit job in hand|
|Data requirements||Registered, that is to say the scans are oriented to each other|
|Supported scan data formats||E57, ASCII, LAS, FARO (LSPROJ, FLS, FWS), Leica (PTZ, PTS, PTX), Zoller&Fröhlich (ZFS, ZFPRJ), Topcon (CL3, CLR) Leica (PTG) and Riegl RiScanPro-Projects (RSP).|
|Required reference information (photo rectification)|
|For a photo rectification at least four control points are required or 2 reference observations.|
|Required reference information (map rectification)|
|At least 9 control points or 4 control points and the camera parameters are needed|
|Supported image formats|
|As-Built for AutoCAD® Software supports all image formats supported by AutoCAD®, e.g. TIF, BMP, JPEG, PNG. For merging bitonal images use the TIF format.|
|As-Built for Autodesk® Revit®|
|Operating system||Microsoft® operating system, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 in the 64-bit version.|
|Hardware requirements||Autodesk® recommends a multi-core Intel® Xeon®, or an i-Series processor, or the AMD® equivalent with 16 GB RAM and DirectX® 11 compatible graphics card and SSD (Solid State Drive) hard disk with at least 5 GB of free memory.|
|Supported Revit® Versions||Autodesk® Revit® 2017 or 2020|
