3D Laser Scanning

Transforming Surveying Engineering with 3D Laser Scanning Technology

3D laser scanning has emerged as a ground breaking technology in the realm of surveying engineering, including measured building surveys and topographical surveys. This state-of-the-art tool provides unmatched precision, speed, and adaptability, significantly altering the way surveyors and engineers carry out their tasks. 

Topographical Surveys:

One of the main uses of 3D laser scanning in surveying engineering, particularly for topographical surveys, is the ability to capture detailed and precise information about the landscape. This includes elevation changes, contours, and other natural features. Surveyors can use this data to generate comprehensive and accurate maps, which are crucial for land development, urban planning, infrastructure projects, and environmental evaluations.

Measured Building Surveys:

In the creation of measured building surveys, 3D laser scanning plays a significant role by offering accurate, efficient, and comprehensive data collection. Using processed point cloud data, surveyors and engineers can generate 2D plans, sections, and elevations of the building. These drawings accurately represent the building's layout, dimensions, and architectural features, providing essential information for various applications such as planning, design, renovations, or facility management.

3D laser scanning greatly enhances the creation of both measured building surveys and topographical surveys by providing highly accurate, efficient, and comprehensive data collection, resulting in precise 2D plans and elevations, as well as detailed 3D models. This technology has revolutionized the surveying industry and continues to shape the future of building documentation and analysis.

Leica BLK360

blk 360

Key Features

  • Four scan settings capture data in 7, 13, 30, or 75 seconds at 680,000 points per second 

  • Rich High-Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery with 5 bracket HDR 

  • Small and light, measuring 155x80mm and weighing just 850g with batteries 

  • Five times faster than the BLK360 G1, taking 20 seconds for a full-dome scan with photospheres 

  • Visual Inertial System (VIS) automatically pre-registers scans in the field 

  • High-speed data transfer via USB-C and Wi-Fi 

01

Immersive HDR Imaging

The BLK360’s four 13-megapixel cameras capture high-quality photospheres, and 5- bracket HDR imaging captures all the details in challenging lighting conditions and environments for more immersive photospheres and colourised point clouds. 

02

VIS Scan Alignment System 

Leica Geosystems patented VIS, available with our Leica RTC360 3D laser scanner, is now built into the new BLK360 to combine scans automatically. Each scan captured in the field combines with the previous scan so you’ll spend less time aligning data in the office  and more time creating valuable deliverables. 

03

Ultra-Fast Scanning 

The enclosed LiDAR sensor in the new BLK360 captures point clouds at a rate of 680,000 points per second and completes a scan with spherical images in 20 seconds, with flexible scan settings to ensure you capture everything you want and need.

04

High-Speed Data Transfer

The USB-C port on the BLK360 gives you a faster, easier way to transfer your data, nine times faster than the BLK360 G1. You’ll benefit from fast and stable data transfers without relying on WLAN.

The RTC360 3D laser scanner is the solution for professionals to manage project complexities with accurate and reliable 3D representations and discover the possibilities of any site.

RTC 360

Key Features

  • Highly portable, highly automated, intuitive and designed for maximum productivity, the RTC360 solution efficiently combines the RTC360 a high-performance 3D laser scanner, Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 mobile device app for edge computing for automatically registering scans in real time, and Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360 office software to integrate your 3D model seamlessly into your workflow.

  • Capture scans, including enriching High-Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery, in less than two minutes.

  • Automatically record your moves from station to station to pre-register your scans in the field without manual intervention.

  • Augment your data capture with information tags illustrating the opportunities for better planning, reflect site reality, and boost your teams’ situational awareness 

  • Directly publish your captured data from Cyclone FIELD 360 to Leica TruView Cloud to  quickly exchange project information prior to import and registration 

01

Fast

The new Leica RTC360 laser scanner makes 3D reality capture faster than ever before. With a  measuring rate of up to 2 million points per second and advanced HDR imaging system, the creation of coloured 3D point clouds can be completed in under two minutes. Plus, automated  targetless field registration (based on VIS technology) and the seamless, automated transfer of data from site to office reduce time spent in the field and further maximise productivity.

02

Agile

Small and lightweight, the Leica RTC360 scanner’s portable design and collapsible tripod mean  it’s compact enough to fit into most backpacks, ready to be taken anywhere. Once on-site, easyto-use, one button operation makes for fast, hassle-free scanning

03
