scanning for open pit area and maximum distance with faro focus x330 scanner

Post by Januar » Fri Oct 13, 2017 2:40 am

Dear Sir and Madam,
I have X330 Faro Focus and JRC software, we have problem went I scan in Open Pit mining area because the distance [ I already try max distance only 30m went I process Use cloud to cloud.
Because the furthest distance that can be processed with cloud to cloud is only about 30m with software scene in Open pit mining area,
if anyone can advise me how to do the scanning with FARO Focus so get distance of approximately 100 m and can be processed with cloud to cloud,
I am very grateful for the information.

Regards
Januar.k

Hi Januar,

make sure you are not using distance filter on the scanner

Make sure the Quality setting on the scanner is high enough. At quality 1-4x your setting how long the scanner will wait for a return on the laser. 4x should get you the full 330m capability, anything above 4x is super-sampling.

As Jaymon wrote increasing the quality setting up to 4x may give you more points in the distance because they will be measured more accurate and not deleted by filters.

Can you clarify your problem: Do you not get (enough) points far away from the scanner or is the registration not working?

Why do you think cloud to cloud registration in SCENE can only be used withing 30 meters? As far as I know the algorithm is not restricted to any distance but only needs the scans to have enough overlap to be properly registered. Maybe you can share some screenshots of your scans so that we get a better understanding.

Dear Friend
Mining area is 5Ha, they need to scan this area in 1 hours, because over there so many activity.
how about if User use Faro Focus S350 is there any different ? [ because this type has longer scan distance ]
