The Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner and Autodesk® ReCap™ Pro for mobile simplify the way you document, design, and measure.


360 Imagery When a scan is initiated, the BLK360's three 5 megapixel cameras combine to capture a slice of a full dome image. Then, the BLK360 rotates ~33° and the three cameras capture the next slice. These images are stitched together to create a full dome, 360°HZ x 300°V image.

Accuracy A laser scanner calculates 3D XYZ coordinates using 3 measurements - a horizontal angle, a vertical angle and a slope distance from the scanner center to the measured point. This is referred to as a "polar" measurement. Add a bit of trigonometry and you quickly come to XYZ or Cartesian coordinates.

Battery The BLK360 features a removable and rechargeable li-ion battery that last for 40+ full scans (imagery, laser scan, thermal).

Infrared Camera The BLK360 comes with a built-in FLIR® Thermal Imaging Sensor. In the 30 seconds while the BLK360 is capturing its spherical HDR imaging, a 70°°V x 360°HZ Thermal image panorama is also being created. The IR sensor is precisely aligned to the HDR sensors and the laser scanner. But wait, there's more! The IR sensor doesn't only give you a color scale, it is calibrated within +/- 1°C. The perfect reality capture tool for energy audits.

Memory The BLK360 comes ready to work, even if you forget to charge your iPad Pro. In autonomous mode, the BLK360's 64GB of onboard memory will store up to 100 full reality-captures: Imagery, laser point cloud and infrared panorama. When connected to an iPad Pro, your storage limit is only the amount of memory on your tablet.

Range Measuring range for any laser scanner depends on having a somewhat reflective surface. Based on our many years experience in laser scanning, we spec'd the BLK360 to work in the range from 60cm out to 60meters (2' - 200'). As a rule of thumb, the laser reflects better off light colored surfaces. Our specification is based on an "albedo" of 78%, something like a light colored interior wall.

Weight & Size Despite its rugged aluminum housing, the BLK360 is still under 1kg (2.2 lbs). At 100mm diameter (4") and 165mm high (6.5"), it is slightly easier to transport than your typical laser scanner. This coffee cup helps put things in perspective.

WiFi Hotspot The BLK360 acts as its own WiFi hotspot; there is no need to have WiFi on a job site to capture reality. Countless engineering hours were spent ensuring the array of WiFi antennas optimize performance. The integrated wireless LAN supports the 802.11 b/g/n standards.
