FARO Design Scan Arm
FARO Design Scan Arm
The FARO Design ScanArm is a portable 3D scanning solution tailored for 3D modeling, reverse engineering, and CAD-based design
applications across the product lifecycle management (PLM) process.
By combining FARO’s best-in-class 3D scanning technology with powerful 3D design and modeling software, the Design ScanArm
provides a turnkey solution that allows users to quickly digitize any part or object, easily design or modify reverse engineered models,
create manufacturing-ready CAD models, and verify design intent of prototype products.
The Design ScanArm is the ideal solution for any organization that may have the need to manufacture parts without existing CAD
models, develop aftermarket products that need to fit tightly with existing products, reverse engineer legacy parts for design changes
or replacement, create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs, design aesthetically pleasing, freeform surfaces, or
leverage the power of rapid prototyping.
Features optically-superior blue laser technology to capture highly-detailed and noise-free scan data.
Rapid Scanning Speed
An extra wide scan stripe and fast frame rate provides expanded laser coverage for fast point cloud capture.
Lightweight and Maneuverable
Built for convenient desktop use in the design studio or engineering lab.
No Targets or Spray Required
Advanced software algorithms enable seamless scanning across challenging materials regardless of contrast, reflectivity,
or part complexity.
Simple User Interface
Designed for easy operation regardless of skill level or 3D scanning experience.
Hard Probing Capabilities
Utilize both high-resolution 3D scanning and high-precision] probing of basic geometry.
Quickly digitize legacy parts to support design changes, replacements, incorporation into new designs, or to perform
Create manufacturing-ready CAD files for parts before they are broken, lost, or unavailable.
Quickly and accurately scan OEM parts enabling the efficient design of aftermarket products in CAD based directly on the
geometry of the mating part.
Modification of Production Tooling
Capture the as-built condition of complex tools and molds in order to update the tooling needed to support a new model or variant or
to reproduce or move the assembly line.
Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO)
Conduct wear and tear analysis and create as-built documentation on parts and tooling prior to maintenance efforts and create
custom fit replacements for critical repairs.
Digital Archiving and Engineering Documentation
Create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs that can be reproduced as needed in the future.
Industrial Design / Clay Modeling
Easily digitize complex, organic, challenging shapes for quick iterations to design aesthetically pleasing and functional
3D Printing / Rapid Prototyping
3D scan data can be easily produce a watertight, 3D printable mesh or scale model to feed directly into a 3D printer.
