CAD-based 3D inspections and nominal comparisons can be achieved with an easy-to-use scanning solution. With the FARO® ScanArm you can quickly and easily record thousands of points by scanning part surfaces. FARO software compares collected points to the CAD model and deviations to nominal are displayed. You are then able to check complex geometry against the CAD design to evaluate deviations in the surface, and the results can be easily reported and sent via e-mail allowing for instant analysis of every part.
