PX-80 is 15X Faster

Let’s be honest. Tripod laser scanning is accurate, but it’s a lot of work. The effort and time it takes to set up and reposition the tripod every 3-4 feet make it a cumbersome chore so it's usually only done at the beginning or end of a project.

Typically, rework increases construction costs by 5%. That’s a lot of money and energy spent fixing mistakes. What if your team could avoid these mistakes in the first place? With the PX-80, you can scan daily, weekly, or as often as you’d like to monitor worksite productivity; verify work installed; and ensure what’s being built matches the BIM design intention. Unlike tripod-based scanners, the PX-80 isn’t limited to a fixed line-of-sight. The handheld design lets you scan in complex areas: above, around, and below structures.

In a 3rd party evaluation conducted by the Center for Advanced Construction Information Modeling at the University of Florida, the same 8,000 square foot site was scanned 6X with both a Faro Focus and the PX-80.


In this side-by-side comparison, the total scanning time of the PX-80 proved 9X faster than the Faro Focus. The overall workflow and post-processing time, including registration, was about 16X faster.



Impressive, right? We sure think so.

If you haven’t heard, we’ve announced an official launch date and are offering 3 ways to get your hands on this technology. You can buy it, try it, or pre-order until October 16, 2017.
