FARO reveal Design ScanArm 2.5C with high resolution full color scanning

FARO, a supplier of 3D measurement and imaging solutions for product design, has developed the first arm-based solution to include high resolution, 3D color scanning capability. This exciting introduction includes full color 3D scanning as standard, out-of-the-box functionality in the new FARO Design ScanArm 2.5C (DSA 2.5C)

The Design ScanArm 2.5C is compatible with the FARO 8-Axis FaroArm system, which effectively doubles the arm reach and substantively improves the ease of use, is specifically designed to address design challenges across a range of industries including Computer Graphics, Industrial Machinery, Auto Manufacturing and Engineering Services.

A color 3D representation is the perfect baseline for product visualizations and special effects.

This innovative leap forward enables parts and objects to be reconstructed and visualized as vividly as they appear in the real world. The true-to-life functionality not only allows design professionals to proceed with an even higher level of confidence but also, as a result, accelerates the completion of important projects. Faster end to end project cycle time is also supported and enhanced by rapid scanning color capability of up to 240,000 points per second.

Consistent with the FARO commitment to optimizing ease of use through advanced ergonomics, the Design ScanArm 2.5C, like its predecessor the Design ScanArm 2.0, is available in three highly maneuverable arm lengths—2.5m, 3.5m and 4m. This ensures that end users can select the option that optimally fits with the specific design objectives for their projects. Furthermore, hot swappable batteries ensure that the user can bring the scan to the project rather than needing to bring the project to the scan.

Greater efficiency with 3D color

The DSA 2.5C significantly exceeds the baseline expectations that FARO documented from prospective users during an exhaustive product development process. Not only do the vividness and sharpness deliver spot-on representation of the color of the real world object, but now finer details including texture, and even text, can be clearly extracted for product visualization, computer graphics or identification of key features during the product design or reverse engineering processes. Finally, greater efficiencies can be realized as full color can be captured in a single scan, removing any need to take pictures or apply texture in the post scanning process.

“FARO continues to be laser focused on optimizing the productivity of design professionals,” stated Thorsten Brecht, Senior Director Product Design.

“By integrating exceptional quality color into the design process, we have created a best-in-class 3D reality experience by allowing users to capture more information, in true-to-life detail richness and color, in less time than ever before. The DesignArm 2.5C is yet another example of FARO pushing the boundaries of innovation and accepting the challenge to lead the market.”
