New Laser Scanner Redefines Democratization of 3D

au2016_blk360

At Autodesk University 2016, Leica Geosystems and Autodesk announced an innovation that ushers in a new era of 3D reality capture. The new Leica BLK360  imaging laser scanner is so small and light that it fits in a typical messenger bag and can be carried almost anywhere. At the touch of a button, the scanner captures full-color panoramic images overlaid on a high accuracy point cloud.  The product is being offered at an extremely low price point and will be bundled with Autodesk’s ReCap 360 Pro and the new ReCap 360 Pro app for iPad, bringing laser scanning to the masses.
