  • FARO measurement software vs. PC-DMIS

    My curent company is looking into getting me a FARO laser tracker/arm combo including their software package. How does this software compare to DMIs? Has anyone used both?

    The CAM2 software that comes with FARO is limited in what it can do compared to PC-DMIS. The only thing I like better about the FARO sotware is that if you have operators who don't know what they're doing that can't mess up the program like they can in PC-DMIS. It has a seperate programming mode and run mode.

    Among the many limitations is that your can't report polar coordinates, only cartesian. When you change alignments, it always changes the readings for everything in the program so you have to print each set of features in it's own alignment seperatly.

      We have both. It comes in handy when our B&S decides it wants to meet it's makers again. For the price it is not bad at all. Being manual it is much more sensitive to user error than the DCC, as you probably know. I don't use any Polar data, so I don't know what kind of problems that could cause. But I am Pleased with my FARO. Just wouldn't want it to be my only machine.

        Cam2Measure has some issues with reporting that has made me very cautious at times. You might want to double check some of it's reported numbers that are calculated from others sometime.

        I guess some of the PCDMIS 'leave that bug there' philosophy is not just confined to Wilcox/********.

          If you run PC-DMIS in Operator mode, the program cannot be changed.
