3D capture technology has revolutionized all industries and trades. Now, architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals depend on scan data capabilities to visualize real-life spaces they can interact with digitally, which can improve project collaboration, delivery, and quality. As a leading software for scan data capture, Faro SCENE is a dependable option. However, before civil engineers can make the most of SCENE, choosing the right computer workstation is essential.

 

 

Used by AEC professionals, Faro SCENE processes and manages scan data taken on-site from handheld or terrestrial devices. For instance, when surveying outdoor spaces for public development, civil engineers can use SCENE with a Faro-brand or third-party scanner to generate full-color, high-quality data in real time. SCENE utilizes on-site registration, automatic object recognition, scan registration, and automated targetless and target-based scan positioning to create vivid 3D visualizations. Another acclaimed feature of SCENE is the virtual reality view. Once civil engineers have gathered the scan data, they can experience it with VR, providing the project with a whole new level of insight.

 

 

 

 

Point Cloud

SCENE is extremely useful for civil engineers because they can export impressive 3D visualizations into workable CAD formats and various point clouds. SCENE is also effective for documentation, as well as measurement taking and mapping, but engineers need CAD and other BIM software to manipulate that data to adjust geometry if, for example, working on an infrastructure renovation project. Having richly detailed scans to work from is crucial, but transferring point cloud data from SCENE to another application requires an optimized workstation setting. 

The optimal hardware configurations for working with dense point clouds (like the type engineers can produce and export with SCENE) require high CPU clock speeds and a substantial number of processor cores so the ideal BOXX workstations include the APEXX S3 featuring a six-core, Intel® Core™ i7 professionally overclocked 4.8 GHz, as well as the 18- core APEXX X3, with an Intel® Core™ X-series processor (up to 18 cores at 3.6GHz).

VR

Virtual reality is another exciting SCENE feature. Using either the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive glasses, engineers can explore and evaluate remote on-site situations from their offices. With VR, engineers can virtually walk through point cloud data, which allows for an unparalleled, immersive experience. However, VR does place a high demand on computing hardware, and engineers need to make sure their solution stacks up. For this workflow, BOXX recommends the APEXX W4 equipped with a 18-core Intel Xeon W processor and including an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
