Faro Focus S120 - Check by Buying ?

Post by Comcad » Mon May 22, 2017 1:41 pm

Hello everybody !

I'm really beginner with Laserscanning, but I decided that for my work (planning, reverse engineering) it's a great tool :)
In few days come to me a seller with Focus S120.
Can you please tell me, what and, more important I have to check before I can say - this device works good ? Am I able to check anything ?
After presentation I will have few days to test scanner in field.
Test software - Recap 360.

Thanks for any constructive answers ;)
Martin. :?

Private seller? Ask for certification history. When was it last calibrated?

One thing you could check yourself is look at the data right at the 180° mark so see how the overlap lines up.

Thanks for answer ! No, commercial seller. I will ask about calibration of course.
Can you please explain your 180 Degrees check ? Some picture could be helpful ;)

Thanks.

Reverse?
While I love my 120 I wouldn't consider it for reverse engineering.. what kind of reverse?
By the way, a calibration certificate is a good start.. :-)

Make sure it has been calibrated recently, and run a few scans on it to check it out.
There has been an epidemic lately with the 120s having SD card related issues.
Ours went in for standard calibration, and came back with SD issues. We worked through it for a while, but recently sent it back in to be repaired.
Faro now says not only does it have SD issues, it cannot even achieve calibration and needs more parts.
This can add up fast

Ours is overdue for calibration so shouldn't be talking. It's presently too busy to take out of rotation, and sometimes sending it in reveals or creates more issues. Kind of like going to the doctor.
