FARO Releases PointSense v18.5 for AEC Professionals

FARO has announced FARO PointSense 18.5, the latest update providing enhanced tools for accelerating point cloud modeling for AEC professionals in AutoCAD and Revit. The new release provides users with new fitting and deformation analysis tools, improved software ergonomics and a seamless workflow integration.

In PointSense for Revit 18.5 users can quickly and accurately fit structural elements, such as steel beams and columns, into the point cloud for the first time. Tailored components can be automatically preselected and inserted using intelligent algorithms with full user control of the process. In addition, the transfer of scan data from SCENE 7.1 to Revit works easier. A new SendToRevit App enables the seamless transfer of coordinates from the Scan View into PointSense for Revit. The detour via exporting and processing in VirtuSurv is no longer necessary.

New and enhanced deformation tools in PointSense for AutoCAD permit architects and engineers to analyze geometries against real-world conditions even more accurately and with customization. The improved visualization of deviations according to tolerance standards provides stakeholders a documented quality assurance report for the delivery as well as the reception of 3D models.

Plant Engineers profit by a remarkable time saving when fitting steel beams (up to three times faster as in version 18.0), 3D solids or bent pipes into the point cloud. The overall efficiency for digitizing and modeling of complex plants and factory halls gets, therefore, significant increased.
