iStar camera calibration

Im looking to buy a iStar camera Fusion and Faro Focus X130 or S150 scanner.

  • What is the accuracy of colorize the point cloud using images aquired from iStar Fusion?
  • How can I calibrate the camera? How can I fix the parameters of camera calibration?
  • Can I see the accuracy of colorizing the point cloud?

Thank You!

Hello Drynda,

Thanks for getting in touch,

Please take a look at the following application note which documents the use and workflow for iSTAR in conjunction with a FARO X130 Scanner, It provides all the necessary information required for using iSTAR for this purpose:

If you wish to test the data yourself, the data set with both iSTAR imagery and the 3D point cloud can be accessed using the following link:


The actual process of colourising the Point cloud is fully automated using our Colour cloud software; Colour Cloud can be used as a stand alone application, or as a plugin for FARO Scene software.


If you have further questions, or require pricing info for iSTAR, feel free to get in touch with me directly at
