Overview of the scan time depending on the settings

The following overview shows the different scan times depending on the selected resolution and quality. Differentiation was also made between the various color modes (RGB, Speed, Night, HDR). In order to be able to estimate how much data is captured, the number of points in millions is given for each setting. The density of the point cloud on a flat surface at a distance of 10 meters is also given.

It should be noted, however, that FARO scan data is not comparable with data from other manufacturers, as manufacturers specify different parameters for determining duration. For FARO scanners, the time from pressing the start button to the end of the scan is specified.
