FARO Design ScanArm 2.5C



Turnkey 3D Scan-to-CAD Solution for Accelerated Product Development.

High Resolution color SCANARM 2.5C for high performance 3D Scan-to-CAD solutions for Product Design and Computer Graphics

The FARO® 8-Axis Design ScanArm 2.5C is the only integrated remote axis portable visualization and rendering solution, capable of scanning in full color for 3D modeling, reverse engineering, and CAD-based design applications across the product lifecycle management (PLM) process.

The FARO 8-Axis Design ScanArm 2.5C is the first color capable portable lightweight 3D scanning solution providing an unprecedented ergonomic experience with both the 7-Axis or 8-Axis models. Using the new FARO PRIZM™ full color Laser Line Probe with powerful 3D design and modeling software, the 8-Axis Design ScanArm delivers high-resolution color point-cloud data enabling more insight into object design and creation, geometry, surface composition and differentiation between materials. The color information is also used in high-quality 3D visualization of rendering objects in gaming, movies and online marketing. The added eighth-axis enables real-time rotation of the object being scanned – eliminating wasted time, reducing risk to delicate objects and supporting more complete scan output.

Multiple Color option

The 8-Axis Design ScanArm 2.5C is the ideal solution for any organization that may have the need to develop or manufacture parts and after-market products characterized by different coatings, materials, co-molded parts or surfaced finishes without existing CAD models. In addition, you can reverse engineer legacy parts to design changes or replacement, create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs, design aesthetically pleasing free form surfaces or leverage the power of rapid prototyping.


Improved Operator Effectiveness

This lightweight and easily maneuverable ScanArm is available in lengths of 2.5m, 3.5m and 4.0m and seamlessly scans challenging products, objects and prototypes. The Design ScanArm 2.5C comes equipped with dual, hot swappable batteries that enable continuous operation with no need for external power when the application requires measurement in the field or shop floor. FARO kinematic iProbe’s easy connect/disconnect combined with a simplified quick release, makes the device effortless to operate regardless of skill level or 3D scanning experience.

New Possibilities 

The FARO 8-Axis Design ScanArm 2.5C is the ideal color capable 3D scanning solution for any organization that may have the need to:

  • Capture and digitize objects and props in full realistic detail for digital visualization

  • Manufacture parts without existing CAD models

  • Develop aftermarket products that need to fit tightly with existing products

  • Digital archiving and historical preservations

  • Reverse engineer legacy parts for design changes or replacement

  • Create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs

  • Design aesthetically pleasing, freeform surfaces

  • Leverage the power of rapid prototyping
