OverviewFZViewer.png

If you use FARO Zone software for forensic investigations, security, or pre-incident planning, you probably need to share your results with others. The FARO Zone Viewer is the perfect sharing tool, and it is FREE.

The FARO Zone Viewer lets anyone view and explore files created with FARO Zone 2D and FARO Zone 3D. Simply download and install the  FARO Zone Viewer to open diagrams, analyses, animations, and fly-throughs that have been created with FARO Zone 2D or 3D. There is no special publishing program required and no hidden costs.

If you work with someone who uses FARO Zone and they sent you a file with the extension .far, you may be wondering what to do with it. Just download and install the FARO Zone Viewer, then use it to open any .far or .fzpc file. The FARO Zone Viewer is only used to display FARO Zone files. It cannot be used to make any permanent changes to the original .far file or the point cloud data.
