A new laser scanning tool from Leica
Geosystems offers accurate and fast 3D imaging laser scanning capabilities. The Leica BLK360 is said to be compact and easy to use, offering powerful spherical image capture duties. The firm says that the unit allows professionals to capture 360° imagery within minutes.
Users place the lightweight BLK360 on a level surface or tripod and, with the push of a single button, it captures the HDR spherical imagery and takes a 360,000 point/second laser scan. Getting measurements right first time, the BLK360 features +-4mm accuracy at 10m and an overall 0.6 - 60m range. Within three minutes, the spherical image and laser scan is completed and ready to view in the Autodesk ReCap Pro for mobile app, which runs on an iPad Pro. From there, users can take measurements, add markup and annotations or share onsite data in the office.
