HoloBuilder, your trusted and reliable 360° reality capture tool, is evolving and will soon take on a new brand, look, and feel to become the FARO Sphere XG Digital Reality platform.

We’re thrilled to announce an upcoming rebranding and the future of construction cloud platforms: FARO Sphere XG, your all-in-one digital reality platform. If you are a current HoloBuilder user, you will see these exciting changes happening over the coming months, with functionalities transitioning to the Sphere XG interface. 

We’re confident Sphere XG will redefine your reality capture experience as it unifies all formats of your point cloud and 360° photo data from FARO and non-FARO devices.  Here are three things you should know about the upcoming change and what to expect during this transitional phase from HoloBuilder to Sphere XG.

HoloBuilder will soon be known as Sphere XG

To provide you and fellow AECO professionals with revolutionary construction tools, we are updating the HoloBuilder construction progress management platform and rebranding it to Sphere XG. This is part of FARO’s journey to innovate and usher in the next generation of digital construction tools by unifying all forms of reality capture technology. Changes and rebranding exercises will happen incrementally over the coming months, but aspects and functionalities that make HoloBuilder’s reputation as a reliable and accurate onsite tool will remain. The brand update will also see tools from the FARO Sphere ecosystem integrated into the common interface, bolstering the compatibility and functionality of Sphere XG.
