iSTAR and FARO Focus 3D X130

Scan colourisation with iSTAR HDR images

The FARO Focus 3D X130 scanner does offer colour capture but is limited to single exposure, not HDR. It therefore does not always provide adequate results in challenging lighting conditions. NCTech iSTAR cameras can be used to provide HDR imagery for improved performance and reduced time on‐site. NCTech ColourCloud technology is integrated within Faro SCENE from version 6.0 and the NCTech ColourCloud app can be downloaded free of charge from FARO 3D App Centre. Using the ColourCloud app integrated into FARO SCENE further streamlines user workflow by enabling automatic point cloud colourisation and import of iSTAR images without needing to leave the SCENE workflow environment.
