Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I try to verify my scan, but the FARO® Scan Verification Tool keeps showing the project is not signed.
A: Check if your Scan folder or ScanPlan folder contains the file ‘SHA256SUM’. If not, the project is not digitally signed and thus, cannot be checked.
Make sure you verify scans that are copied directly from the SD card or USB flash drive of your device. Verify that the firmware version for the FARO Focus is at least 6.3.0 and for FARO ScanPlan at least 2019.0.

Q: I cannot open the SD card on macOS
A: Refer to the article Memory Cards Used With the Focus Laser Scanner and Formatting Instructions. That article explains, how to create an SD card that is compatible with macOS and the FARO Focus scanner.
If you did not do so with your current SD card, you unfortunately will have to copy your scan on another (Windows) PC to a medium (e.g., USB flash drive) that is readable on macOS.
Q: I want to verify the scans in my SCENE project folder, but it does not seem to work.
A: SCENE removes the signatures when saving into the "revisions" folder. To verify a scan, you must use the original data from the FARO Focus Scanner. If you were using On-Site Registration, you find the original data in the "RawScans" folder in your project.
