Faro Focus 3D X330 has arrived at Seacoast Multimedia and the possibilities that this 3D laser scanner has to offer are endless. For the first time, Seacoast is able to provide the clients with the most accurate 3D data which can easily be applied in a variety of areas such as land surveying, accident reconstruction, site inspections, architecture, forensics, and many more.
The purpose of the 3D scanner is to create a point cloud of geometric samples from the surface of an object which can be used for data preservation, 2D/3D surveys, and creating 3D models. Like cameras, 3D scanners collect information about surfaces; however, unlike cameras which collect color information only, scanners collect distance information as well, which allows a three dimensional model to be constructed.
The laser technology of the 3D scanner permits high precision measurements and highly accurate documentations. This time-of-flight laser scanner emits a single pulse of laser light, which is then bounced off of an object. The scanner measures both the time for the reflected light to return to the distance sensor and the distance between the surface of an object and the scanner. The Faro 3D X330 captures points at speeds of up to 50,000 points per second. The process of obtaining the 3D data of an object or an area is simple and fast.
The first step is to visually inspect the area and pre-plan the scan. Next, the scanner is placed in the most suitable positions, and the scanning can start. Optimally, a number of scans are performed from different angles with adequate overlapping of each scan position to create a single point cloud of the entire area. Finally, the data can be preserved or immediately transferred to post-production and processed into the final product.
Professionals who can benefit from this service include forensic experts, law enforcement agencies, attorneys, municipalities, city entities, public utilities, entertainment producers, and many more.
