Leica iCON iXE3 - 3D System

Advanced 3D excavator machine control solution

Leica iCON excavate iXE3
The iXE3 machine control solution guides the operator using reference models and GNSS in 3D. Design information and real-time cut/fill indications are displayed in the cab on your control panel, allowing you to rapidly excavate to the reference design. The solution ensures more uptime and operator satisfaction while increasing safety and productivity. Work with a wide range of industry-standard data formats including LandXML, DXF, GEO, KOF, L3D, LMD, LIN, MBS and TRM formats, which offers the customer a variety of applications and workflows. The operator can use the function Create Model to make simple and complex models on the fly without leaving the cab and without the assistance of a surveying engineer.


One platform for all machines with a simple and intuitive user interface. The cable-free panel allows the operator to easily swap panel from one machine to another. The operator just turns the key and gets on with the work. The interactions support the workflow of the task at hand, and the clean interface makes it easy to find the functions you need using icons for fast navigation. The assistive technology with wizards and help functions help you drive the machine and get more work done with higher quality and fewer errors.

Increase your uptime

The efficient menu structure is set up for easy management of the all project files. Increase your uptime due to a user interface that gives the operator quick access to select the functions that are needed for the workflow. The interface keeps the operator in the run screen and targets his attention to the job at hand. Select full screen or split screen to guide you to the most efficient view that assists you through the job.

Share data seamlessly

The iXE3 solutions allows you to share log points between machines for project progress monitoring and follow-up. Create model data are also easily shared as well as seamless file sharing between MC1 software, iCON 3D software and iCON site projects.

Reach new levels of productivity

Leica Geosystems offers several tools that will increase the productivity of your excavator by automating vital functions. The iXE CoPilot automates the tilt and rotation function of a tilt rotator attachment whereas the Tool Recognition feature ensures that the right bucket is automatically selected in the machine control solution. Simplify the use of the excavator, reduce operator fatigue and avoid costly errors.
