Determining Shot Origin

FARO SCENE Screen and Box

Overview

Use the Shot Detection Tool in the SCENE Forensic App to find a shot origin in a scan.

Before You Begin

To calculate a shot origin, you will need a scan of the trajectory rods with two affixed spheres of a known radius.
Note: Typical trajectory spheres have a radius of 40mm.

Find Sphere Radius

  1. Click Selection on the Explore ribbon.
  2. Click Select Circle.
  3. Select a sphere on on the trajectory rod. (Click the middle of the sphere and use the mousewheel to expand the selected area.)
  4. Right-click the selection and select Create Objects > Sphere Radius.
  5. The radius will be shown in the resulting dialog box. To avoid creating redundant information, delete the created sphere.

Set Sphere Radius

  1. Go to the Settings menu and chose the Processing tab
  2. Ensure that the correct sphere radii is listed in the Active sphere radii column
  3. If not, type the correct radius value in the Add New box and press Enter.
    Note: Verify your units of measurement. Click the General tab in the Settings menu to change measurement units.

Create Shot Trajectory Paths 

  1. Open a Planar View of the scan.
  2. Click Mark Sphere in the Mark Point drop down menu in the Explore ribbon.
  3. Select each trajectory rod’s sphere.
  4. Click Shot Direction Tool,  from the Measure Points drop down menu.
  5. Select the sphere closest to the entry point.
  6. Select the sphere furthest from the entry point.
    Note: A line will appear showing the estimated path the projectile made.
  7. Repeat steps 2) through 4) until all shot paths have been defined

Creating the Shot Origin

  1. Click the Apps icon  and choose Forensic Wizard .
  2. Click Calculate shot origin.
  3. Select the location of the Shotdirections as found in the Structure window.
  4. Click Next.
    Note: If the message Failed to create Origin appears, click OK.  A best guess location will be created.
  5. Click Cancel.

Obtaining Dimensions to the Shot Directions Origin

Within the Origins folder in the Structure window, an origin point can be identified by the red star icon:

  1. Click Measure Objects in the Measure drop down menu to measure between a plane and the origin point.
  2. Create other planes to obtain the required dimensions to the origin point

Error “Warning: Failed to create Origin”

If you see the message “Warning: Failed to create Origin” use the instructions below:

  1. Click OK.
  2. Click Cancel to exit the Wizard.
  3. Review the position of the origin point either using measurements or within a 3D View of the Workspace.
  4. Create additional shot directions as needed or remove shot directions that were created.
  5. Click the Forensic Wizard app.
  6. Click Calculate shot origin.
  7. Select the location of the Shotdirections as found in the Structure view. Click Next.
  8. When prompted “Line already exists. Do you want to replace old line?”, click Yes All.
  9. When prompted “Origin already exists. Do you want to replace old origin?”, click Yes All.
  10. Once the note appears stating “Shot origin trajectories are created or updated. Origin for trajectories is created or updated” click Cancel.
