FARO® Knowledge Base

Copy a 2D Floor Plan Scan Localizer Project to a Computer

Quick Steps

Overview

Once a 2D Floor Plan Scan Localizer project has been saved to the Scan Localizer network, the project file can be copy to a desktop or laptop computer where you can use specialized software, such as FARO® Zone, to take measurements or augment the visual floor plan with pictures, icons, notes, or instructions. FARO Zone is fully compatible with the Scan Localizer and can directly open its native file format.

To copy the 2D project file, setup a wireless connection between a your computer and the FARO® Scan Localizer. You connect your computer to the Scan Localizer wireless network the same way you would connect to any other wireless network. Use the computer's network sharing or network setup to find the Scan Localizer network and connect. Then copy the project folder from the network to the computer.

Copy the Scan Files to a Computer

  1. In the File Manager, double-click the Share network folder. This is where the Scan Localizer stores the 2D project files on its network. 
  2. Navigate to the folder named for the Scan Localizer 2D project you want to copy to your computer.
  3. On your keyboard, press Ctrl + C to copy the folder. 
  4. On your computer create a folder where you want to store the 2D project file and open it. 
  5. On the keyboard, press Ctrl+ V to paste the copied 2D project file folder. Depending on how big the Scan Localizer project file is, this may take a while.

Once the 2D project folder appears, you are ready to open the project file and work with it.
