Focus 3D Laser Scanners

Capture accurate and complete measurements with confidence

Capturing the measurements of a large building, facility, or crash/crime scene with conventional documentation can take days or weeks, and even then, the data might be incomplete. But the FARO Focus Premium and FARO Focus Core create accurate, photorealistic 3D representations of any environment or object in just a few minutes – even in the most extreme outdoors conditions. Download and read the full brochure to learn how you can harness the accuracy, speed and connectivity of FARO’s new Focus Premium Laser Scanner along with its companion software and cloud-based solutions.

Building on FARO’s history of accuracy and reliability, the new FARO® Focus Premium Laser Scanner is the fastest, most accurate and most data-sharing-enabled scanner on the market to date, featuring entirely new components with a proven design.

Focus Premium provides exceptional capturing efficiency, data quality and accuracy for professional applications across the construction, public safety, operations & maintenance and manufacturing markets, while offering data quality at faster scan speeds (up to 1 minute per scan) reducing onsite scanning time by up to 50%.

Meanwhile, faster loading and system response yields greater data management efficiency when paired with the new FARO Stream mobile app and uploaded to the new FARO Sphere cloud-based collaboration platform.

Focus Premium and Core Features

  • Up to 350m scanning range, leading to superior area coverage per scan position
  • Smartphone-enabled remote control capabilities, limited only by the range of a Wi-Fi network
  • Improved wireless workflow with more stable and faster Wi-Fi operation
  • On-site registration, the process of combining multiple scans using common overlap, means faster project completion and real-time awareness of scan errors or missing data
  • Seamless connectivity with Stream and Sphere
  • Scanner control can be executed on either the app or on the actual Focus
  • Users have easy access to create projects, change scanner settings, manage image resolution, opt for color or black and white scans, group scans through clustering, and add annotations
  • Rugged construction and housing can withstand the tough day-to-day work
  • Integrated high-speed SSD data storage for maximum scan capacity and lighting fast scan processing
  • Flash Technology enabled (for Focus Premium) for fastest scans with greatest accuracy featuring colorized clarity at an affordable price.
  • Hybrid Reality Capture scan mode a subscription option through the FARO Stream App, accessible through Sphere.
  • Proprietary smart upscaling algorithms (for Flash Technology) ideal for large-volume scans.


Super-High Color Resolution

The latest color technology enables the Focus Premium to capture scans with up to 266 megapixel color information.

Up to 50% faster scan times

With the Flash Technology add-on and required PanoCam, a typical scan takes less than 30 seconds and can save up to 2.5 days of scanning for projects that require five scanning days.

Software Compatibility

Process your Focus Laser Scanner point cloud data with any software tool that fits your workflow, including FARO software solutions and third-party software such as Autodesk® ReCap™.

Multiple Point Clouds, Multiple Devices

The new Focus is also designed to work seamlessly with the FARO Freestyle 2 Handheld Scanner, thanks to its “Snap-In” feature. Save the time that is required for multiple scanner positions when it comes to scanning complex environments / structures, equipment or tight spaces. Snap-in enables the user to seamlessly add data starting from a Focus point cloud by using it as a reference for missing data from such hard-to-scan locations, including areas in shadow and objects with irregular geometries.

PanoCam and Scanner Combo for Peak Performance

Flash Technology is a revolution in how large-volume projects will be scanned, both for architecture and engineering and public safety applications. Now, there is no longer a need to sacrifice speed for accuracy and accuracy for speed. It is a best-of-both-world’s innovation that will improve on-site productivity and ensure predictable accuracy on each and every project or forensic investigation.

Two-Year warranty

Competitive service means maximizing the life of this product while reducing the total cost of ownership throughout the device’s lifespan. Two years allows for maximum flexibility and the piece of mind knowing that any repairs or defective parts will be replaced.


Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC)

Ensure the highest quality of your construction projects with Focus Laser Scanners. Precise laser scanning throughout the building process ensures that the final structure fits design intent, minimizing risk of deformations and other problems. Also perform large-volume calculations and inspect free-form shape elements and façade components with ease. The scan data is invaluable for project supervision and collaboration across trades.

Public Safety Analytics

Forensic analysis and pre-incident planning. Capture every detail of an environment for developing safety systems or for investigating crime/crash scenes, reconstructing bullet paths and uncovering the cause of a fire.

3D Metrology

Use Focus Laser Scanners to enhance the accuracy and speed of your design and engineering processes. When a product has no CAD data, simply scan it to get all the measurements you need for reverse engineering. And when manufacturing fixtures and fittings for ships, cars or aircraft, scan the complex interiors as your basis for planning conversions.
