FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO) announces the debut of CAM2 Measure 10, its newest software for the FaroArm, ScanArm and FARO Laser Tracker. This release marks the first time FARO has included features for collecting and analyzing point cloud data as part of their CAM2 line, in addition to other new enhancements like Live Color Scan, Shortcuts and the Easy Move Wizard.
FARO’s new CAM2 Measure 10 now provides non-contact users the ability to scan and collect point cloud data for reverse engineering, rapid prototyping and analysis. The software is the ideal complement to FARO’s recently released Edge ScanArm.
Other new features like Live Color Scan permit rapid inspection of free form parts with the FARO ScanArm more quickly and easily than before. Live Color Scan highlights deviations from CAD during the scanning process to help identify inconsistencies quickly and expedite the scanning process. Shortcuts allow for the creation of new commands for obtaining measurement data that previously may have only been available through a series of complex operations. This feature enables users to record steps in a measurement process, and then combines them into a single command to be accessed later. The Easy Move Wizard simplifies measurement of large parts, particularly when frequent repositioning is a necessity. By enabling quick identification of correct target correspondence, the time required to relocate(or “leapfrog”) the FaroArm is reduced and the potential for user error is mitigated. Other enhancements enable CAM2 Meausure 10 users to conduct remote measurements, run commands and see real-time results from their Apple iPhone or iPad.
