Promotional package

Faro has announced that as a limited time promotional offer, its Faro Design ScanArm will be bundled with 3D System’s Geomagic software at a reduced launch price.

The available software options have capabilities that range from automatic meshing functionality that delivers ready to use files without any post-processing, to fully-featured reverse engineering software that combines history orientated CAD with 3D scan data to create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with all major CAD platforms.

“The Faro Design ScanArm was purposefully engineered to meet the needs of the product design market,” comments Dr Simon Raab, president and CEO of Faro Technologies. “By combining our 3D scanning technology with 3D System’s Geomagic software offerings, the Design ScanArm provides a turnkey solution that allows users to quickly digitise any part or object, easily design or modify reverse engineered models, create manufacturing ready CAD models, and verify design intent of prototype products.”

The Design ScanArm features optically advanced blue laser technology with fast scanning speeds to deliver high resolution point cloud data and the ability to seamlessly scan challenging materials without the need for spray or targets. The device is lightweight and manoeuvrable for convenient desktop mounting in a design studio or engineering lab. The arm features a simplified user interface that makes it easy to operate regardless of skill level or 3D scanning experience.

Dr Raab adds: “Through a deep understanding of our clients’ workflows we can ensure that Faro’s solutions are optimised for application specific demands and, as such, our customers are not forced to pay for features that do not add value to their processes. It is this engineering philosophy that allows the Design ScanArm to be aggressively priced for rapid return on investment without sacrificing any required technical capability.”

The Design ScanArm is claimed to be the ideal 3D scanning solution for any organisation that may have the need to manufacture parts without existing CAD models, develop aftermarket products that need to fit tightly with existing products, reverse engineer legacy parts for design changes or replacements, create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs, design aesthetically pleasing, freeform surfaces, or leverage the power of rapid prototyping.
