Seamless scan to CAD solution introduced

March 17th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Faro has released Faro RevEng, an advanced software platform which provides its Design ScanArm and 8-Axis FaroArm system users with a tool that enables a comprehensive digital design experience. The software addresses a variety of reverse engineering and design challenges across a range of industries including automotive aftermarket, R&D, heritage preservation, industrial machinery, engineering services and computer graphics. Software features include seamless scan, capture and display point clouds in colour and point clouds that are generated geometrically and visually accurate relative to the scanned object. It also converts the point cloud into a high-quality mesh. Other features include the ability to edit and optimise the mesh for further design purposes or make it 3D-print-ready. RevEng tools and functionality are tightly integrated to assure a seamless handoff of project information, which streamlines end-to-end workflows. Final output can be a watertight mesh model, mesh shell optimised for 3D printing, or a collection of 2D and 3D curves to feed into the CAD modelling stage of the design workflow. Additionally, RevEng includes advanced algorithms that significantly reduce processing time.
