High-Resolution 3D Scanning for Forensic Anthropology and Crime Labs

The FARO® Forensic ScanArm is a portable, non-contact 3D scanning solution tailored for forensic anthropology, crime lab and medical examiner applications.

By combining FARO’s best-in-class 3D scanning technology with powerful meshing and reconstruction software, the Forensic ScanArm provides a turnkey solution that allows users to scan forensic evidence and artifacts in 3D with greater accuracy, and up to 10 times faster than the time it would take to do so with conventional measurement and photographic methods. The evidence is documented digitally into a 3D model – permanently and safely via non-contact scanning so that the risk of damaging often fragile evidence is minimized. 

This solution allows the user to piece together forensic evidence into a digital record for the purpose of evidence and artifact recreation, ultimately helping to solve and prosecute crimes. Scan data files may be used to 3D print replications of forensic artifacts that can be used to create compelling courtroom presentations.
