FARO Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO) debuted the CAM2 Measure 10, its newest software for the FaroArm, ScanArm, andFARO Laser Tracker. This release marks the first time FARO has included features for collecting and analyzing point cloud data as part of its CAM2 line, in addition to other new enhancements like Live Color Scan, Shortcuts, and the Easy Move Wizard.
This new scanner software gives non-contact users the ability to scan and collect point cloud data for reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, and analysis. This features is in addition to the other available capture methods–traditional probing and scanning. The software is a complement to FARO’s recently released Edge ScanArm, and, according to the company, “represents a giant leap forward.”
Live Color Scan permits rapid inspection of free form parts with the FARO ScanArm. This feature highlights deviations from CAD during the scanning process to help identify inconsistencies quickly and expedite the scanning process.
Shortcuts lets you create new commands for obtaining measurement data that previously may have only been available through a series of complex operations. You can record steps in a measurement process, and then combine them into a single command to be accessed later.
The Easy Move Wizard simplifies measurement of large parts, particularly when frequent repositioning is a necessity. By enabling quick identification of correct target correspondence, the time required to relocate (or “leapfrog”) the FaroArm is reduced and the potential for user error is mitigated. Other enhancements enable CAM2 Measure 10 users to conduct remote measurements, run commands and see real-time results from their Apple iPhone or iPad.
