HiCAD with FARO® technology inside

FARO® is one of the world's leading suppliers of 3-D measurement and imaging technology. FARO solutions provide architects, engineers and contractors with highly accurate data of existing buildings and facilities. For example, FARO supports users with its laser scanners and the As-Built™ Modeler software to minimize the time required for as-built documentation.

Now FARO and the ISD Group have combined and bundled their competence in a cooperation. In the past, both FARO customers and our customers wanted the possibility to combine the advantages of laser scanning and the point cloud when working with HiCAD. In order to meet this customer request, the workflow between the FARO tool As-Built Modeler and HiCAD was first improved by means of an appropriate interface functionality.

For users who want to work directly with point clouds in HiCAD, FARO technology has now been specifically built into HiCAD. The modelling of CAD objects can now take place directly on the digital twin. With this solution, users can carry out digital planning using high-precision measurement data of the existing building - directly in their familiar planning environment. This increases the quality of the resulting planning data and reduces expensive rework in the field. Our customers benefit from this seamless interface and can make processes more efficient in their working environment.

We want to continue this successful cooperation based on customer requirements in the future and work closely together to provide our customers with targeted solutions to give them an important competitive edge.

The extension module "HiCAD Point Cloud" is available since the Major Release 2020!
