Build 40 is an important update for FARO Edge owners that are using the newer version FARO driver.
If you are an FARO Edge owner that has experienced problems while attempting to scan, then you should be sure to update to 2.9.17 build 40 or higher.
This build 40 specifically addresses issues with connecting to the Edge arm scanner with the newer FARO drivers. Typical problems include VTube-LASER not connecting to the FARO, VTube-LASER throwing errors when connecting, VTube-LASER not turning the scanner on, VTube-LASER not taking in any scan points, scanning works intermittenly, or other driver connection problems occur.
The Edge arm we used for a test had updated firmware and was running with the newest FARO Blu scanner using a new FARO driver. Before this change, VTube-LASER would not even scan with this arm. But we found and fixed the problem. After hours of testing, the same Edge arm never experienced a single failure with this build.
Even though the changes were made mainly for the FARO Edge model, the change should also have a beneficial impact on scanning performance and connection the newer FARO Quantum arms.
