FARO Technologies has released version 5.2 of its scene scan processing software.
In SCENE 5.2, 3D visualizations are rendered in greater detail with the new super sampling function. The software also improves 3D views by reducing color differences due to inhomogeneous light conditions at different scanning positions, the company says. The color-balancing tool smoothens the transition between individual scans with overlapping areas.
The new software comes with a homogenization tool that eliminates coordinate points with a distance of less than 1.5 mm from each other. This function reduces the volume of data by an average of 20 percent, with no noticeable compromise to the visualization, according to FARO.
Other new functions include multi-clipping boxes and multi-orthophoto, which provide users with more options to manipulate scan data. The software's ability to recognize natural registration marks and to perform fine registration have both been optimized to boost performance.
With the new WebShare service, users can save 3D documentation data in the cloud and share scanned projects with project partners.
