THE SCAN2FX EXPORTER FOR MARI allows users to export your SCENE panorama scans as projection layers into Mari, enabling a unique and efficient workflow for 3D painting and texturing.

SCAN2FX Exporter for Mari is an add-on application for FARO SCENE and requires FARO SCENE 2019 or higher.


  • Quickly turn the SCENE scan projects into a Mari project for texturing and 3D painting - without time-consuming intermediate steps.
  • Utilize the spherical image projections, layers and projectors generated by SCAN2FX to texture a mesh straight in Mari.
  • Paint the texture from different scanned panoramas onto the mesh through Mari’s 3D painting toolset - to precisely apply color from your scans.
  • Precisely control how textures get applied and blend textures from different scans for seamless transitions between different exposures and times of days.
  • Fill in gaps where no texture exists by painting onto the color channel with a clone brush through Mari’s 3D Paint toolset.
  • Apply color corrections and other filters to your scans with Mari's 3D paint brushes, powered by the SCAN2FX generated data.
  • Create realistic backdrops by painting onto the environment sphere created by SCAN2FX in Mari.

  • If you also have licensed the SCAN2FX Texture Module, the SCAN2FX Exporter (for Mari) Module will add the extra ability in SCAN2FX Texture to export the generated textures as layers straight to Mari, considering occlusions and with layers contributions by each scan. SCAN2FX Texture computes a texture in an automatic fashion based on the different scans in SCENE, and a OBJ mesh with UV layout. While, SCAN2FX Exporter is focused on exporting the panoramas from SCENE for projection painting. A SCAN2FX Exporter Module is also required to export photo projection cameras generated through SCAN2FX Photo Projector.

    Please note that you will need a current version of the Foundry’s Mari to import the data generated by SCAN2FX Exporter (for Mari). The SCAN2FX Exporter (for Mari) plug-in enables the export and computation of data to allow you to easily apply the Mari functionality. The functionality of Mari is subject to change and we have no control over the toolset provided by the Foundry’s Mari.
