3D Scanner Open Day

3D Laser Scanning open day success!

Last week we held the first of many 3D Laser Scanning open days at our headquarters in Sheffield.

During the day we had demos of all our equipment including the new FARO Freestyle 3D. We also provided presentations on data processing and exporting into different CAD packages.

Our UK training manager also held a Q & A session with delegates. We also had Guest speakers Paul Fidler and Marcus Abbott, discussing how they utilise 3D Laser Scanning in their field.

We have received some very positive feedback from the day and are already planning our next open day to help take you to the next step in 3D Laser Scanning success.


Introducing The FARO Freestyle 3D

3D Scanner Store is pleased to announce the new FARO Freestyle 3D

Do you want a scanner that’s efficient in your hands?

The new FARO Scanner Freestyle3D, a handheld scanner for professionals provides a fast and easy to use scanning solution with verifiable accuracy of the 3D colour scan data.

Furthermore, the handheld 3D scanner maximises your productivity offering fast data acquisition and real-time visualisation. With this, the scan time in the field is reduced enormously during the point cloud acquisition as well as with the processing of your scan results.

The 3D scan data can easily be imported into all commonly used software solutions for architecture, accident reconstruction, civil engineering, construction, facility management, forensics or industrial manufacturing. The Freestyle is available to buy from 3D Scanner store; we also have added the freestyle to our hire fleet of 3D Laser Scanners.
