Meet the game changer
The new Leica BLK360 is a revolutionary, miniaturised imaging laser scanner. Capturing the world around you, the BLK360 takes full-colour panoramic images overlaid on high-accuracy point clouds.
- Weighs less than 1 kilogramme
- Stands at 16 centimetres with a 10 cm diametre
- Scans at a range of 60 metres with 4 mm accuracy
- Captures 360,000 points per second
- Takes 360° spherical images
Developed to provide a complete view of reality to businesses who couldn’t previously consider professional 3D laser scanning, the BLK360 democratises reality capture whenever, wherever needed.
“As the leader in the spatial measurement arena, we recognized the gap between Leica Geosystems’ scientific-grade 3D laser scanners and emerging camera and handheld technologies, and set out to bring reality capture to everyone,” said Dr. Burkhard Boeckem, CTO of Hexagon Geosystems. “By combining and miniaturising technologies available within Hexagon, the BLK360 empowers every AEC professional to realise the benefits gained by incorporating high resolution 360° imagery and 3D laser scan data in their daily work.”
