FARO Technologies, the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement technology, has announced the launch of the new FARO Freestyle3D X Handheld Laser Scanner.
The latest device is designed to transform the way manufacturing, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), law enforcement, and other industries document 3D data through easy to use and intuitive data acquisition.
The new FARO Freestyle3D X incorporates state-of-the-art scanning technology that delivers enhanced scanning accuracy of 1 millimetre at a 1-meter range. The Freestyle3D X is available with a U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceable calibration accessory to provide users with verifiable data accuracy, which is critical for forensic scanning and other highly regulated industries. On-site calibration data is exportable in PDF format, allowing information to be easily shared with other team members.
The Freestyle3D X also incorporates an automatic flash mode enabling users to scan objects in a variety of lighting conditions. New software tools deliver an intensely detailed visualisation of the created 3D point cloud, and an integrated best-point filter enhances the quality of the scan data by reducing noise up to 35%. Finally, post-processing functions have also been improved, offering up to 5x faster data writing speed to further improve productivity on the job site.
The Freestyle3D X can be employed as a standalone device or used with FARO Focus3D X Series Laser Scanners.
“The Freestyle3D X sets the industry standard for ease-of-use and verifiable accuracy among professional, portable scanning devices,” explained Joe Arezone, Senior Vice President and Managing Director FARO Asia and EMEA. “The new features, such as automatic flash mode, best point filter and new algorithms decisively enhance the overall scanning experience and enable users to carry out more projects with better quality at the same time. Moreover, the new Freestyle3D X will allow the most demanding users to achieve better accuracy in their projects.”
