The tables have turned: FARO adds an 8th axis to 3D scanning

May 16, 2019

Until now, 3D scanning has been limited to seven degrees of freedom. This describes the freedom of motion of an articulating measurement arm, like the FARO® Design ScanArm, that attaches to the scanner or probe.

With FARO’s latest revolution to the ScanArm, the 8-Axis, 3D scanning now has eight degrees of freedom.

The 8-Axis is a separate, yet integrated rotational axis that provides a natural extension of the ScanArm capability, attaching to the ScanArm via cable results in a seamless high-accuracy part rotation axis.

Dive into the details of how the 8-Axis works in this whitepaper from Engineering.com.
