Scene LT

How to install and make the most of Scene LT

Scene LT is a piece of free software created specifically for viewing FARO laser scanner scan data. Please watch the following video we've created to help guide you through this process.

If the project folder contains a “Scene Scan Data” folder, then you should consider downloading and using the Scene LT software and files.

The Scene LT file format is a ZIP file which contains a set of folders and files. This data contains the 3D Panoramic view of the scan data for each scanner location. You will need to unzip these files and then open the "FWS" file in Scene LT to view the scan data.

Once Scene LT is installed, go to the setting icon in the upper right (gear icon) and click the button at the top labeled "Switch User Interface." This will set the user interface to allow the opening of FWS files.

Mac users will need access to a Windows machine in order to install this software.

Alternatively, Existing Conditions' Virtual Site Visits platform is an easy and low cost way to access spatial data of your building or project, regardless of your operating system or hardware. You can use the platform on any desktop, tablet, or mobile device – all you need is an internet connection.
