Does the new FARO X330 have what it takes?

Building on the success of the Focus3D, the new Focus3D X 330 surpasses previous models in functionality and performance. With a range almost three times greater than previous models, the Focus3D X 330 can scan objects up to 330 meters away and in direct sunlight. With its integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing making it ideal for surveying based applications.

In addition, the Focus3D X 330 scan quality has been increased and noise has been reduced, providing precise three dimensional models in a photo-realistic style. These advances in performance did not come at the expense of safety as the Focus3D X 330 includes a Class 1 “eye safe” laser.

“Its minimal weight, small size, touch-screen, SD-card and a battery life of 4.5 hours make the Focus3D X 330 unbeatable and easy-to-use,” said Dr. Bernd Becker, Chief Technology Strategist for the new Focus3D X 330. “No other provider can offer such a technical achievement.”

With its increased range and scan quality, the Focus3D X 330 considerably reduces the effort involved in measuring and post-processing. The 3D scan data can easily be imported into all commonly used software solutions for accident reconstruction, architecture, civil engineering, construction, forensics, industrial manufacturing and land surveying. Distance dimensions, area and volume calculations, analysis and inspection tasks and documentation can thus be carried out quickly, precisely and reliably.

3CON, LLC to provide 3D laser scanning and airborne imaging to Illinois towns damaged by tornado

Pekin, Illinois – 3CON, LLC to provide 3D laser scanning and airborne imaging to Illinois towns damaged by tornado.

At approximately 11:05AM CST on Sunday, November 17, 2013, a severe weather front moving fast from west to east struck the towns of Galesburg, Pekin, N. Pekin, and Washington, Illinois. The damage to Washington, IL was severe, and resembles a war zone. State Representative Aaron Schock surveyed the damage moments after it happened, and commented that the “pavement is the only thing left”.

3CON, LLC’s President and C.E.O., Duane Redding, commented “We were very, very lucky. I received a call from Kris (Mayer) who was notified that there was a tornado on the ground in Pekin. I walked out of the front of the building and looked due west to see a funnel cloud of what had to be an F3 or F4 tornado. It literally took up the whole sky. I could see debris whirling just outside of it, and at that point I knew this was just about as bad as it could get.

The town of Washington, IL suffered a direct hit and is estimated to have lost over five hundred homes and business. Amazingly, only one fatality was reposted in the City of Washington as a result of the storm.

This storm hits close to home for us, and therefore we have mobilized efforts to assist in search/recovery, and follow up operations. Anyone wishing to donate services is asked to contact the Tazewell County Health Department Disaster Center at 21306 Illinois Route 9, Tremont, IL 61568 or by phone at (309) 925-5511.
