FARO Technologies Inc. (Lake Mary, FL, US) has released CAM2 Measure 10.5, its latest software for the FaroArm, FARO ScanArm and FARO Laser Tracker. CAM2 Measure 10.5 connects multiple 3D measurement devices, within the same coordinate system, and simultaneously scans into a single seat of software on one computer. This capability allows users to seamlessly scan large objects with higher speed and more precise accuracy in order to complete 3D scanning jobs faster. Significant advancements to geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) functionality provide users with streamlined analysis and visual reporting. A part inspection can now be displayed like a print to visualize and determine part quality. This enhanced functionality eliminates the need to look at each feature in sequence to make the same determination. Workflow efficiencies are maximized with the ability to automate repeat inspections by programing data analysis to automatically occur after the measurements are taken. This is said to reduce required training time, reduces the risk of operator error, and accelerates job completion times. Additional enhancements include expanded point cloud capacity and the ability to scan trim edges. Users are now able to collect more than 20 times more data than previous versions, while maintaining accelerated processing speed.
Editor PickA better method of structural health monitoring?
Fibersail, a 2014 startup firm with offices in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and Leça de Palmeira, Portugal, aims to change the current state of real-time structural health/shape monitoring for composite structures — initially, for wind farm operators.
