Overview

When scanning with the Freestyle hand-held laser scanner, you use SCENE Capture, SCENE Process, and SCENE to create detailed point clouds of real-world environments.for documentation, inspection, and measurement purposes. This software is seamlessly integrated, making it quick and easy to work with.

  • SCENE Capture is the free, unlicensed software that comes with the tablet computer you get with the Freestyle. Using Capture, you can check and manipulate the quality of your 3D data, point cloud, and emerging visualization as you scan. Measurements can be taken directly from Capture. Using Capture, only single scans are possible. To register multiple scans, you must purchase SCENE Process.
  • SCENE Process is FARO licensed software that runs on a laptop or workstation. You must purchase it separately from the Freestyle. You move the captured point cloud to Process to automatically improve the scan and visualization quality. If needed, you can export the point cloud from Process to manipulate it further in other software, such as SCENE. 
  • SCENE is FARO licensed software that runs on a laptop or workstation. You can use the powerful features in SCENE to further process and manage scanned data. Features include automatic object recognition, scan registration and positioning, and high-quality scan colorization.

CAUTION: The version number of SCENE Capture used to create the point cloud must be the same or later than the version of SCENE Process or SCENE. For instance, If the point cloud comes from SCENE Capture 5.5 and you are using version SCENE Process 5.4, the file will not open. You must upgrade to SCENE Process or SCENE 5.5 or later to open the files. If the situation is reversed, with the point clout coming from SCENE Capture 5.4 and you are using SCENE Process 5.5 or SCENE 5.5 the file will open correctly.

You can download either the latest or earlier versions of the Capture and Process software from this article.
