FARO Technologies announces immediate availability of FARO RevEng. This software platform provides FARO Design ScanArm and FARO 8-Axis FaroArm system users with a tool that enables a comprehensive digital design experience. RevEng addresses various reverse engineering and design challenges across a range of industries including automotive aftermarket, research and development, industrial machinery, engineering services and computer graphics.
New features include the ability to scan, capture and display point clouds in color; generate point clouds geometrically and visually accurate relative to the scanned object; convert the point cloud into a mesh (edges, points and polygons that define the geometry of an object); and edit and optimize the mesh for further design purposes or make it 3D-printing-ready.
Advanced Workflow Optimization
RevEng tools and functionality are integrated to assure the handoff of project information, which streamlines end-to-end workflows. Intuitive icons on a single worksheet are designed to save time and enable a new level of efficiency. Automatic fixing and repair tools reduce the time needed to create the perfect mesh model. Easily extract 2D sketches and 3D contour lines from mesh model. It allows a trial-and-error-approach to get to the best result for individual projects so users are free to focus on the desired result.
RevEng displays a clear, true-to-life color representation of the source items. As a result, users have confidence that quality information can be edited in RevEng or exported to third-party software for editing and final model generation.
For users who need to refine mesh models and extract sketch geometry for 3D design activities or 3D printing, RevEng delivers a full set of tools to edit and optimize the mesh model. This enables production of the most accurate and efficient digital representation of the scanned object possible. Final output can be a watertight mesh model, mesh shell optimized for 3D printing, or a collection of 2D and 3D curves to feed into the CAD modeling stage of the design workflow. Additionally, RevEng includes advanced algorithms that significantly reduce processing time.
“As a solutions-driven enterprise, FARO is focused on our customers' optimizing their investment,” says Thorsten Brecht, senior director, 3D Design. “FARO RevEng is modeled with this as the core development sensibility. We appreciate that time to market and design flexibility are critical to the success of any design project.”
