About this Training Intended audience: any FARO CAM2 Measure user measuring with a FaroArm Length
About this Training Intended audience: any FARO CAM2 Measure user measuring with a FaroArm Length

About this Training

Intended audience: any FARO CAM2 Measure user measuring with a FaroArm

Length of Training: Three days.

Structure: Modules and Lessons.

The training is not intended to cover every menu item of CAM2 Measure. We have taken the most common applications of CAM2 Measure and developed a training program that teaches you core principles, measuring strategies, and tips in a hands- on format. Our intent is for this training to provide a strong foundation for you to start using your FARO measurement system in your environment. Additionally, it will prepare you to learn more advanced features of the software.

Lesson 1: Hardware Setup

 

Setup of the FaroArm is quick and easy. It is very important that you mount the Edge in a stable relationship to the part (the part should not move relative to the Edge).

 

Lesson Objective

   

With the assistance of the FaroArm Assembly Instructions, you will be able to unpack and setup the Edge. This means you will be able to:

 

z

Unpack and set up the portable tripod.

 

z

Unpack and mount the FaroArm to the tripod.

z

Connect the FaroArm to your computer.

z

Connect the FaroArm and your computer to a power source and power both on.

Assembly

 

To set up the FaroArm refer to the FaroArm Assembly Instructions located in the shipping case.

 

FaroArm Quantum Series:

 

z

Attach the 3½ inch threaded ring and surface mount plate to a stable location. A granite slab, or acceptably rigid surface, is recommended.

 

z

Tighten all mounting bolts to 11½ N-m (100-inch pounds).

and rotate it to place it onto Tube 1 and engage the storage hook. See “Storage” on page

1.6.

Reach under and grab the Quantum by Tube 1 and the base handle to remove it from the case.
