  1. Contact FARO Support to get a link to download the 5.3  and 5.4 firmware to the computer you use with your Focus3D X.
  2. Unzip the firmware file.
  3. Transfer 1_firmware.LsSetup From the Computer to the Focus3D.
  4. Transfer 2_firmware.LsSetup From the Computer to the Focus3D.
  5. Confirm Results.

Ensure that your battery is fully charged before you begin, so that if there is a power outage the upgrade will not be interrupted.

  1. Take the SD card out of the Focus3D X and put it into your computer.
  2. Open the SD card with Windows Explorer. At the top level, there are at least two folders: Preview and Scans. You may also have an Updates folder. If it exists, delete it. Make sure that you do not use the existing Updates folder.
  3. Create a new Updates folder at the top level. Make sure you capitalize the U.
  4. Copy the 1_firmware.LsSetup file into the new Updates folder and rename the file to firmware.LsSetup.
  5. Remove the SD card from your computer using the Windows safe removal option, and put the SD card into the Focus3D X.
  6. On the Laser Scanner, go to Manage > Service > Firmware Update and press the Update button. The update runs, completing in about 5 to10 minutes. When the screen goes white, the Focus3D X reboots.
  7. After the reboot, take SD card out of the Laser Scanner and put it into your computer.
