Quick Steps

  1. Start FARO® Zone and open a FARO® Scan Localizer 2D project file.
  2. Click on the work grid to place the 2D floor plan scan image. 

See below for details

Overview

Once you have a Scan Localizer 2D project file on your computer, you can open it in FARO Zone to take measurements or make impactful floor plans augmented with pictures, icons, notes, instructions and more. FARO Zone directly supports opening native Scan Localizer 2D project files without exporting from the Scan Localizer or importing in FARO Zone. This article shows you how to open a 2D project file and place it on the FARO Zone work grid so you can work with it. To get in depth information and details about using FARO Zone features to augment 2D floor plans, see the Next Steps section below.
