FARO® Knowledge Base

Traceable 3D Accessories


Traceable 3D is the high accuracy scanning solution we offer to our customers that includes hardware, software, accessories, and know-how. Traceable 3D Accessories are our suite of Target accessories and tools created by ATS that are used for high accuracy registration of point cloud scans.

Highlights included a unique washer that can easily and permanently mount for projects. Once installed and surveyed, these washers act as a benchmark for repeating scans within an established coordinate system. Target accessories, like a sphere or prism, can be magnetically mounted to this washer to add flexibility to a scanning project. All Traceable 3D accessories are designed for high accuracy repeatable scanning.

Traceable 3D accessories are now FARO-made, rather than vendor-supplied. Over forty-five part numbers will now be managed in inventory at FARO for fast turnaround.

Contact us for more information or help finding the right solution!



  • Traceable high accuracy
  • Reusable data, incrementally updatable
  • Equal accuracy over time
  • Georeferenced to grid or map
  • Verifiable data whenever
  • Calibrated and traceable targets to assure quality
  • 1mm proved system accuracy on all targets; NOTE: The Durable M Sphere is 3mm.
  • Durable and discrete washer reference
  • Fast magnetic mounting of targets
  • Large range of targets for different purposes
  • Connectivity to multiple measurement systems
  • Comprehensive range of mounting accessories


Target registration (rather than cloud to cloud registration) can be used for any application. However, they are particularly useful and sometimes mandatory for environments that include:

  • Lack of a good diversity of fixed vertical and horizontal surfaces
  • Critical for narrow connections and other areas with poor scan overlap
  • Stairwells / Level changes
  • Survey control (geo-referencing)
    • Minimizes error propagation
    • Aligning scans to a known coordinate system
  • Industrial plants
    • Difficulty getting the right overlap between scans
    • A small gap due to a weak registration will make the modeling process more complex
