I

A good solution with Faro scanner is to use Trimble software Realworks in place Scene.
In my opinion, it's more powerfull and more "survey" than scene.

Robin,
You have a very tough decision to make. Budgets can force you to buy something that may not be right for your scope of works. I suggest taking the time, set up a scan area of a building, inside or out or some other site. Call the sales teams from the different scanner manufacturers and test them apples to apples on the same playing field. With targets and without. Put their software to the test. Might take you a bit of your time, but then look at the data and perhaps you can go to the budget makers and show them what makes the best sense for your firm. Many of the manufacturers can get you payment plans to afford a bit more. That said, I've used many of the scanners talked about in this thread and most are capable of producing great results.

Dear Robin,

I'll respect your wish not to be contacted directly via email/telephone.

Just want to let you know that if you wish to do a test-drive with the FARO Focus scanner and/or Scene software, you can contact me for a free trial.

Best regards,

Marnix van der Wolk

You have a DM! (In dutch ;-) )
I've send you some backstory as well.


@ others, I also still am looking at the other brands, currently looking at ease of processing scans to CAD (our main interest)
Please keep on suggesting! I do keep an list! :D

Thanks!
