Overview

Your FaroArm, ScanArm, Design ScanArm, or Gage works best when it uses the latest driver. New drivers include bug fixes and features that can make it easier to get your job done quickly. This article shows you how to download the latest or earlier drivers.

After receiving your device back from factory servicing or recalibration, plan to download and install the latest driver BEFORE you use the device. As stated in your FARO license, the factory provides the most recent hardware improvements when servicing your device, so using the latest driver may be required.

CAUTION: If you use software or hardware from a third-party vendor who makes FARO compatible products, check to be sure the vendor's product is compatible with the latest USB FaroArm driver BEFORE you change the driver. If you are using the vendor recommended driver, do not change it. If you are not using the recommended driver and the vendor's product is not compatible with the latest USB FaroArm driver, see the earlier drivers list in this article to find the driver the vendor recommends. When you send your FaroArm in for factory servicing, check with the vendor to find out which driver is compatible with their product. If the latest driver is not compatible, tell the Support Agent when you arrange to send in your FaroArm so that service technicians do not upgrade the driver..

  • When the configuration of your FaroArm is stable and you have not recently received factory maintenance or recalibration.
  • When a FARO Support Agent asks you to use an earlier driver version.
