3D Scan – Model Geometry – Manufacture

Empower product design by integrating real world geometry into your digital design workflow facilitating the use of digital engineering methodologies like prototype fit analysis, industrial design, concept development, and testing.

3D Scanning hardware to your needs

Based on the size and level of detail of your product, part or design environment, FARO offers different hardware options to meet your measurement needs and budget constraints. In high precision applications it is best to hard probe alignment features and primitive geometry while lower accuracy, complex surfaces and large parts can be completely digitized with a non-contact laser line probe, hand held scanner or laser scanner.

Get it right the first time

Once you have a three dimensional representation of your part in the computer you can refine the point cloud or mesh, create regions of interest that allow for fast and easy fitting of geometric primitives and sketches. Geomagic software solutions can then create parametric models for quick and accurate changes downstream and confirm your model to the original scan data to verify design intent.

Improve your products and performance

Be a step ahead (Early design freeze – fast on market)

Use the finished CAD model or mesh of your tested prototype, the product analysis of your competition or the planned plant to realize the market entry. Send the ready production part drawing to your casting, machining, stamping or molding vendors and go to production quickly and correctly the first time by having full 3D virtual representation available. FARO solutions support you in accelerating time to market and gaining a competitive edge.
