FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330

Building on the success of the Focus3D, the Focus3D X 330 surpasses previous models in functionality and performance. Designed for 3D documentation and land surveying with a range almost three times greater than previous models, the Focus3D X 330 can scan objects up to 330 meters away and in direct sunlight. With its integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in postprocessing making it ideal for surveying based applications. In addition, the Focus3D X 330 scan quality has been increased and noise has been reduced, providing precise three dimensional models in a photo-realistic style. These advances in performance did not come at the expense of safety as the Focus3D X 330 includes a Class 1 “eye safe” laser. With its increased range and scan quality, the Focus3D X 330 considerably reduces the effort involved in measuring and postprocessing. The 3D scan data can easily be imported into all commonly used software solutions for accident reconstruction, architecture, civil engineering, construction, forensics, industrial manufacturing and land surveying. Distance dimensions, area and volume calculations, analysis and inspection tasks and documentation can thus be carried out quickly, precisely and reliably.


How the Focus3D 330 Works

The technology behind the Focus3D X 330 is simple. First, the laser scanner emits a laser beam from a rotating mirror out towards the area being scanned. Then the unit
distributes the laser beam at a vertical range of 300° and a horizontal range of 360°. The laser beam is then reflected back to the scanner by objects in its path. The distance to the objects defining an area is calculated as well as their relative vertical and horizontal angles. The data is captured and transmitted via WLAN for calculating
precise 3D renderings.
