Construction BIM

FARO provides 3D solutions for as-built data capturing and 3D visualization of architecture, engineering and construction projects that allow AEC professionals to quickly and accurately extract desired 2D and 3D documentation and deliverables.

Hardware Solutions

Focus
3D Laser Scanner


FARO Focus Laser Scanners are specifically designed for both indoor and outdoor measurements in industries such as Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Public Safety and Forensics or Product Design. All devices capture real world information used in the digital world to analyze, collaborate and execute decisions to improve and maintain the overall project and product quality.

ScanPlan
Handheld, 2D Mapping Solution Captures Floor Plans in Real Time


With the ScanPlan™ FARO® combines speed and precision and many more features to streamline everyday 2D workflows. FARO ScanPlan, an innovative, handheld device that enables rapid measurement and documentation of building floor plans in 2D. Simply walk through the building at normal speed and point the ScanPlan at the walls. While walking, the floor plan is created in real-time on a smartphone (Android or iPhone). Turn 2D maps into complete floor plans by exporting the ScanPlan captured data into a DXF file or use the FARO Zone 2D diagramming software.

BuildIT Construction
Complete Solution for Continuous Construction Verification


Construction sites are becoming remote factories in need of build and verify solutions. Historically, the tolerance level for scrap and rework has been very high because it is considered a part of the normal business - until now. FARO® introduces BuildIT Construction, the first fully integrated building lifecycle Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) management tool empowering construction professionals to continuously evaluate projects with real time comparisons against CAD designs using 3D scan data.

AsBuilt Modeler
The Most Direct Path from Reality into Any Design System


FARO® As-Built™ Modeler is a software tool that enables AEC professionals to extract building information, such as CAD and BIM geometry, to be used from 3D data into any CAD system, even if it does not support point cloud data. It allows users to display, manage and evaluate point cloud projects of unlimited size, independently from its source. Overall design productivity is greatly accelerated by using user friendly tooling to apply measurements, extract highly accurate CAD models and create photo realistic renderings.
