Thanks to Leica we can now test the BLK 360 Laser Scanner. At this point a big thank you to Leica Geosystems Munich!
After we used some 3D scans to realistically display real-time scenes in various game engines, we looked for more compact laser scanners. And we found what we were looking for. Leica provided us with a suitable product with which we can test our requirements.
A laser scanner can be based on many different technologies, each with its own limitations, advantages and costs. Of course, restrictions regarding the type of objects must be observed. For example, optical technology may encounter many difficulties with shiny, reflective or transparent objects. For example, you can use industrial computed tomography scanners and structured-light laser scanners to construct digital 3D models, without destructive testing.
Collected 3D data is useful for a wide variety of applications. Such laser scanners commonly used in the architecture and construction industry. Our unconventional application has found a hearing in this case and it is a special pleasure for us to share this with you.
All in all, this test contributed greatly to our purchase decision. It is one of the cheaper laser scanners with a price of about 15.000,00 EUR on the market. Considering the performance it is a good investment.
