FARO® CAM2® 2018

The World’s Smartest 3D Measurement Platform

FARO<sup>®</sup> CAM2<sup>®</sup> 2018

Capabilities of FARO® CAM2® 2018

The CAM2 platform sets the standard for leading manufacturers around the globe and combines more than 20 years of software development and innovation to take the work out of measurement.

Whether you use a FaroArm, FARO ScanArm, FARO Laser Tracker, FARO Cobalt Array Imager or FARO Super 6Dof TrackArm, and regardless if it is for tactile measurement or non-contact 3D scanning applications, FARO CAM2 ensures maximum feature integration with your FARO solution.

RPM (Repeat Part Management)

CAM2 allows you to quickly and simply set-up repeatable measurement inspection workflows that can be pushed to any workstation and then executed by multiple users anywhere across your factory floor.


Simplified analysis and visual reporting allows the results from a part inspection to be displayed just like a print to easily visualize and determine part quality. This completely eliminates the need to look at each feature sequentially to make the same determination.

Simultaneous Measurement Capabilities

Users can easily connect several measurement devices to one running instance of CAM2. This provides the scalability that reduces the inspection time by parallelizing the data capture process during any measurement job.

Live Color Scan

Users can quickly scan free-form parts and check their quality in real-time. The software provides immediate feedback with different colors for showing deviations from the CAD model during the scanning process, supporting an easy and prompt identification of inconsistencies. No additional post scan analysis is required.

Align My Part Wizard

The Align My Part Wizard enables simple CAD-to-Part alignment. With a single button click, the user is guided through the process of defining an alignment using 3 datums or 6 or more surface points.

Remote Measurement

With the CAM2 Remote Apple App, iPhone®, iPod Touch® and iPad® owners can communicate with their CAM2 via WLAN and thus conduct remote measurements: run commands, change scanning modes, take positions, and see results in real-time. It also supports multiple operators and QuickTools.

Super 6DoF TrackArm Positioning

The Locate TrackArm Wizard guides the user to easily align a FaroArm or FARO ScanArm (with TrackArm kit) to a FARO Laser Tracker, enabling users to measure with a FaroArm or FARO ScanArm over a larger volume within the same coordinate system.
