Great for as-builts measurements.
3D Laser Scanning
The FARO Focus3D is a high-speed Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) offering the most efficient method of 3D measurement and 3D image documentation. In only a few minutes, this 3D laser scanner produces dense point clouds containing millions of points that provide incredibly detailed 3D color images of large scale geometries. Multiple scan positions are required to ensure complete coverage of a structure because laser scanners are line-of-sight instruments. These scan positions are then aligned with each-other to create one cohesive point cloud which resembles an exact, measure-able copy of even the most complex and large structures. The advantage of laser scanning is its ability to record huge numbers of points with high precision in a relatively short period of time.
