- Create a Project Point Cloud in FARO® SCENE with the New Interface or the Classic Interface.
- Export a Project .lsproj File in SCENE with the New Interface or the Classic Interface.
- Open FARO SCENE Project Point Cloud Files in FARO Zone.
The FARO® Laser Scanner scan data and SCENE point clouds can be opened, enhanced, and augmented in FARO® Zone. Because the point cloud files are quite large, you get the best performance from FARO Zone when you create a SCENE Project Point Cloud to manage the point cloud file size, export it from SCENE, and import it into FARO Zone.
Once in FARO Zone, the project point cloud scan points automatically and incrementally appear on your computer display, based on the current view point. As you change the view point, scan points are constantly loading from the hard disk to the display. The speed of the hard disk affects how quickly the the display responds. To get the best display speed, please use a solid state hard disk drive.
