August 14, 2018

FARO Design ScanArm with PRIZM LLP

Today FARO® has launched the FARO Design ScanArm 2.5C – the first portable measurement arm in the market to have full-color 3D scanning.

Available as a full 8-Axis Design ScanArm 2.5C system, users can effectively double their arm reach, experience superior ergonomics and dramatically reduce physical difficulties in the 3D data capture process, addressing the greatest design challenges in applications as diverse as product visualization for auto manufacturing to special effects for gaming and film computer graphics.

This true-to-life color functionality is a breakthrough in scanning capabilities, providing unmatched efficiency and allowing design professionals to:

  • Enhance the design data output
  • Accelerate the completion of projects
  • Proceed with a higher level of confidence
  • And more

Turnkey Solution for High-Resolution Color Point-Cloud


The integration of the FARO PRIZMTM Laser Line Probe is an innovative leap in enabling the reconstruction and visualization of highly vivid scans of parts and objects, true to the real-world.  This exciting new version of the Design ScanArm provides the full-color 3D scanning as standard, out-of-the-box functionality.

Users now have more insight into the object’s design and creation, geometry, surface composition and visual differentiation between materials.

The 8-Axis Design ScanArm 2.5C is the ideal solution for any organization that may have the need to develop or manufacture parts and after-market products characterized by different coatings, materials, co-molded parts or surfaced finishes without existing CAD models. Users can also reverse engineer legacy parts to design changes or replacement, create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs, design aesthetically pleasing free form surfaces or leverage the power of rapid prototyping.
