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.
Attendees at Autodesk University 2016 in Las Vegas will have the opportunity to be the first to know about the Leica Geosystems and Autodesk “mystery product” set to be unveiled on November 15, but a breaking news page promises to keep everyone informed of the big announcement.
