The FARO® Design ScanArm is a portable 3D scanning solution tailored for 3D modeling, reverse engineering, and CAD-based design applications across the product lifecycle management (PLM) process. The device is lightweight and maneuverable for convenient desktop mounting in the design studio or engineering lab and features a simplified user interface that makes it easy to operate regardless of skill level or 3D scanning experience. The Design ScanArm is the ideal 3D scanning solution for any organization that may have the need to manufacture parts without existing CAD models, develop aftermarket products that need to fit tightly with existing products, reverse engineer legacy parts for design changes or replacement, create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs, design aesthetically pleasing, freeform surfaces, or leverage the power of rapid prototyping.
