Primarily for architectural uses, the Faro Focus3D X 30 has some engineering applications

With a scanning range of up to 30 meters, the latest scanner from FARO, the Focus3D X 30, is aimed at a variety of short-range scanning applications such as as-built documentation, building information modelling (BIM), and engineering.

The ultra-portable Focus3D X 30 looks to offer fast, straightforward and accurate measurements, giving customers a choice between the short-range Focus3D X 30 (30 meters), the mid-range Focus3D X 130 (130 meters) or the long-range Focus3D X 330 (330 meters) laser scanner.

The award winning digitally carved Ves-el vases

British furniture makers, craftsmen, and all-round wizards with wood, Benchmark, has won an award for its sculptural creation, the Ves-el, designed by Gareth Neal in collaboration with Zaha Hadid.

Fujitsu has unveiled its first ever Small Form Factor (SFF) workstation, the Fujitsu Celsius J550. Unlike similar-class machines from Dell, HP and Lenovo, Fujitsu’s slimline workstation can host a full height graphics card, up to the mid-range Nvidia Quadro K2200 (4GB) or AMD FirePro W5100 (4GB).

This is big news for 3D CAD users as they can now have access to levels of 3D performance that were previously only available in mini tower desktop workstations, such as the Fujitsu Celsius W550, also released this month.
