FARO launched new As-Built 2020 product updates

Post by MaZschi »

Dear LSF community,

I am pleased to tell you that next to the launch of the FARO SWIFT system we also updated our As-Built products lines.

Here an overview about the news:

As-Built Modeler:
  • Extract models in the quick view (panorama images) to have a much more intuitive navigation when working with the reality capture data
  • User notifications will help you now to understand what the function you are using expects as the next input. As easy as the software is to use in general, it will help you to ramp up faster now and with the future workflows to come.
  • New export file format (.SPW) to directly export point cloud data into SEMA
  • SendTo SEMA allows now to connect to the SEMA wood construction system and send coordinates, measurements and self-defined macros directly into SEMA by using the outstanding data views of As-Built Modeler (quick view or 3D view)
  • Some other improvements e.g. on the merge region tools and some bug-fixes

As-Built for AutoCAD:
  • Including As-Built Modeler with the latest updates
  • The AutoCAD Plugin is now compatible with AutoCAD and its vertical products in version 2021
  • The AutoCAD Plugin now includes a mesh rendering engine which allows you to import high density, textured meshes for your modeling workflows. Supported formats are STL and OBJ e.g. created from As-Built Modeler
  • Some other improvements e.g. fitting of round beams or improved “walk the run” workflows

VirtuSurv:
We have discontinued VirtuSurv back in 2019 and not selling it anymore. Version 2019.2 v2 which was released a few days ago will be the last release including compatibility for the latest AutoCAD and Revit version which will work until AutoCAD and Revit version 2022 is released next year. We are offering a migration path from VirtuSurv to As-Built Modeler as this tool will cover most of the workflows from VirtuSurv before the support of AutoCAD and Revit 2022 ends.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have ideas, wishes, needs or concerns. I am happy to get into a conversation with you. [email protected]

Wish you happy scanning and modeling!
