FARO announces SCENE 2018 with High Detail Scanning and FARO Laser-HDR

Post by MaZschi » Tue Aug 28, 2018 10:00 am

Hello communitiy,

I want to inform you about the recent announcement of FARO SCENE 2018. Please read here the press release:
https://faro.gcs-web.com/news-releases/ ... igh-detail

Whats different to the previous Version SCENE 7.1?

- With Firmware 6.3 for the Focus S150 and S350 we integrated the functionality of High Detailed Scan. This allows you to shoot a low resolution scan and rescan areas of interest with a higher resoltuion. This can be used to scan far away targets or objects of interest to gain improved registration accurcy and quality, time savings during the capturing process and lower file size (usually ~ 150MB per Scan). SCENE 2018 supports these detail scans seamlessly and intergates it into the common registration workflows automatically.

- SCENE 2018 introduces a new, FARO uniquie kind of HDR image quality called FARO Laser-HDR™. This function allows you to leverage your intensity values of the scanner to improve the RGB image quality. It works for all FARO laser scanners even if they are not capable of HDR image capturing Like the FARO X series with no HDR. Using FARO Laser-HDR™ you have more details within your images and scan colors especially for very bright and very dark areas, where also usual HDR approaches runs into limits (Combination of HDR scanning and FARO Laser-HDR will result in a never seen image quality!). Here you can find some image samples for the effect of the functionality for FARO X-Series data.

- We improved the saving process of SCENE which allows you to reduce time effort for fls scan saving by 50%. Also the quick view is twice as fast now.

- The new SCENE Version allows to export full resolution panoramas independent of your selected scan resolution.

- Some other improvements are integrated for better VR usability and compatbility to latest VR devices, improved error handling procedure, automated scaling of scan manipulators in correspondence view, 75% faster WebShare Cloud and SCENE 2 Go export, improved image compensation for exported images, rendering of textured models in VR and of course it includes smaller Bug fixes

...to me it may looks like the best SCENE Version of the past years ;)

Please share your comments and also feedback to the community how you have leveraged the new SCENE 2018 functions in your daily projects.

I still work with the ancient version 4.8 because our IT guy says support for the Photon 120 stops after that version.

Firstly, is that true? if Scene 2018 is able to work with our Faro Photon 120, can we still get te update?

Hi Robin!

Any SCENE version that is not older than the scanner can read and work with all data of all FARO scanners (and even iQvolution)!

Give it a try - things have changed drastically since those good old times! 8-)

BTW: Great to hear about all those old babies still working - quality and durability does not need to have and exaggerated price! ;)

Best regards,

But i'm getting off topic:
Great new to see all Scene software is backwards compatible! :D
I kinda am getting tired to do all actions manually for every single scan :P and glad to see in newer versions i can process everything in batch :D

Will the improvements be visible and transfer to the FARO AS-BUILT software platform?

SCENE 2018 supports these detail scans seamlessly and intergates it into the common registration workflows automatically.

I thought when we purchased our S70, we where told the only difference between it and the S150 and S350 is the range otherwise they all the same, and now we see that they are started to get different, not sure why we invested in this unit if we should have gone with the M70. this is a ripoff too say the least, and with my respect to the car salesmen Faro salesmen are not any better.

FWIW, we were told the same thing when we recently purchased our S70. Was disappointed to learn that some of the firmware enhancements (and now Scene 2018 features) do not apply to the new S70. We were given the impression the only difference was range. Our very capable and helpful vendor has offered to look into the matter on our behalf with Faro corporate.

I am not sure why they made this difference if they already made it clear by making 2 separate units S70 and M70
