You can achieve optimal template accuracy by applying best practices when using the FARO® Tracer Laser Projector.
Template Alignment Accuracy
Focus the Tracer BEFORE you acquire targets. If targets are acquired when the Tracer is out of focus, alignment to the targets will have higher RMS than acquiring targets with a correctly focused Tracer. When you change the Tracer focus, re-acquire the targets. If you correct the Tracer focus, the laser beam may no longer correctly align to the targets. Re-acquiring the targets corrects the alignment of the laser beam.
