For intuitive, efficient 3D point cloud capture, processing and registration


So, you’ve taken 3D laser scans of the building you want to document, or you’ve captured the on-site data you need in order to preserve a crime or crash scene. Now what? FARO SCENE Software is where data processing and scan registration happens. With 3D SCENE Software, users can create stunning 3D visualizations of real-world objects and environments and export that data in various formats. SCENE also features an impressive virtual reality (VR) view, allowing users to experience and evaluate captured data in the VR environment.

SCENE Features

Seamless Connectivity

Use the scanning data across the FARO software ecosystem. Convert scan data into usable CAD/BIM workflows with FARO As-BuiltTM Software. Ensure construction quality control with BuildIT Construction Software. And reconstruct, analyze and diagram forensic scenes with FARO Zone 3D Software.

Immersive Views

Explore scan data in 2D, 3D and VR, creating an immersive experience when viewing project point clouds of unlimited size in full detail.

Superior Navigation

Navigate in 3D with predefined or customized viewpoints, overview map and user feedback to optimize the data render quality and performance.

Easy Data Registration

Use professional and automatic workflows for target-based and targetless (Cloud2Cloud) scan registration.

Efficient Data Processing

Use various tools for scan data filtering to improve cleanliness and color balancing.

Automatic Search

Search for artificial spheres, checkerboards, coded markers or natural references (corner points and planes, etc.).

Intuitive Data Organization

Handle large projects efficiently with a hierarchical data structure and project history management.

Automatic Scan Coloring

Color scans from high-resolution color photographs or the Laser-HDRTM color option.

WebShare Integration

Upload projects with the WebShare service.

SCENE 2go App

Access the app from a USB flash drive for sharing projects with clients for data exploration.

SCENE Software Performance

The World’s Leading Scene Documentation Software
SCENE is designed to process scans captured with FARO Focus Laser Scanners, the Focus Swift Indoor Mobile Scanner, the Freestyle 2 Handheld Scanner and third-party laser scanners. User-guided workflows and extended language support ensure the fastest possible learning curve. Automatic functions and optimized usage of your PC hardware provide the fastest and most productive workflows on the market, making surveying three times more efficient than traditional methods.

Business Value of SCENE Software

Get the Most Out of Your FARO Scanners

This powerful software pairs with FARO Focus Laser Scanners, the Focus Swift Indoor Mobile Scanner and the Freestyle 2 Handheld Scanner to enable data visualization, management, cleaning and registration.

Only Visit a Site Once

SCENE captures all the data you need on the first visit, so you can explore it digitally with project stakeholders in panoramic views, 3D fly-throughs and virtual-reality tours.

Share and Collaborate

WebShare, a web-based service for easy and secure sharing of scan project data, lets you collaborate with others anytime, anywhere.

Save Time

Automatic data processing, filter and registration functions provide a high-quality digital representation of reality at a glance.

Work with Confidence

Real-time on-site registration lets you leave the scanning site knowing you’ve captured all the data you need for later analysis.

Control Data Quality

Versatile registration and validation tools deliver data within specified tolerances.

Public Safety Analytics Applications

Digital Capture of Forensic Scenes

Using a laser scanner to digitally capture a crash, crime or fire scene is the best way to accurately preserve the evidence, but it generates a large amount of data. SCENE software is the best tool to process, register and manage that scan data, resulting in a visually impressive point cloud of the scene for crime scene investigation, fire and arson investigation, crash reconstruction and more.

Improved Safety Planning and Failure Investigation

Gain a more nuanced understanding of the scene and identify potential pre-incident risks that may save lives and prevent injuries in the future. The virtual 3D on-site viewing capabilities make SCENE a valuable tool for safety planning and failure investigation. See all forensic analysis and pre-incident planning applications >

Architecture, Engineering and Construction Applications

Fast, Accurate As-built Capture and Modeling

Scan-to-BIM has never been easier, as SCENE delivers real-world information right into the building information model. And by visualizing the precise geometries of existing properties as the basis for conversions or extensions, SCENE enables out-of-the-box thinking for different concepts of building use. Building is faster and more accurate with SCENE on your side. See all as-built capture and modeling applications >
