FARO’s Focus 3D X 30: An Entry-Level Scanner

FARO Focus 3d X30

FARO has announced a new addition to their product line: the Focus 3D X 30 laser scanner. The scanner has a range of 30 meters, which positions it as the short-range option in the Focus 3D lineup.

The X 30 was developed to fit the needs of short-range and interior scanning applications, such as those undertaken for architectural preservation, as-built documentation, BIM, engineering, facilities management, and forensics professionals.

This particular scanner continues FARO’s history of releasing aggressively priced 3D-imaging solutions tailored specifically for industries where funding is a challenge.

Joe Arezone, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of FARO Europe and Asia Pacific said in a prepared statement that “usability and high return on investment are at the core of FARO’s Focus3D X 30 product. With its feature set and price point tailored to short-range scanning projects, it is a powerful and effective tool for customers working in challenging economic environments.”

On an informational page for the Focus 3D X series of scanners, FARO describes this scanner not only as the short-range solution to accompany its other scanners, but also as the best value for the money. Despite its position as an entry-level scanner in the Focus 3D line, it includes many of the same features as the other Focus products, including a measurement speed of up to 976,000 points per second and a distance accuracy of plus or minus 2mm.
