Document existing building conditions

FARO® offers a seamless solution and workflow for capturing existing as-builts efficiently and accurately in order to process data directly into deliverable CAD plans and BIM models using design software such as Autodesk® AutoCAD® and Revit®.

Capture comprehensive as-builts

Capture comprehensive as-builts

As-built 3D data serves as the basis for architectural drawings in 2D and 3D CAD programs. FARO Laser Scanners digitize as-built conditions quickly, accurately and completely in full detail. Complex geometries, insufficient documentation and areas with limited access make 3D laser scanning the ideal method to collect complete measurements of buildings, structures or industrial facilities.
