FARO introduces Freestyle 2 Handheld Scanner for 3D data capture

FARO Technologies, a global leader for 3D measurement, imaging and realization solutions for Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC), 3D Metrology, and Public Safety Analytics, today released the Freestyle 2 Handheld Scanner for Construction.

This fast, portable, and targeted 3D data capture device can scan even the tightest spaces more easily than ever.

As-built documentation of tight spaces, such as mechanical rooms, interstitial spaces, or above ceilings, can be challenging with tripod scanners. Often, there is not enough space to setup a tripod or enough room to scan the equipment from different locations.

Moreover, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems are often intertwined, making it challenging to get a comprehensive picture using a tripod scanner. Additionally, pipes and ducts can obstruct other systems creating shadows in the point cloud resulting in incomplete data.

For the construction industry, accurate dimensions and locations are needed when coordinating with scope done earlier in the project, such as underground stub-ups, water utility ties-ins or duct riser penetrations, to ease the handoff between contractors.

The new Freestyle 2 addresses these and other common challenges.

Whether being used standalone or combined with a FARO® Focus Laser Scanner, the Freestyle 2 gives contractors a new way to capture accurate 3D point clouds of their projects for planning, verification, and handover needs.

  • Compact – For use in tight areas or confined spaces where a tripod scanner cannot go
  • Faster – To capture colour scans of targeted areas or objects in as little as one-third of the time than with tripod scanning
  • More Complete Data – To walk around equipment or reach around objects to capture more detail
  • Real-Time Visualization – Live display of the in-process scan ensuring all necessary data is captured
  • Ideal Companion – Users can combine targeted scans with large area scans from a FARO Focus to create the most detailed and comprehensive point cloud of their projects
