The Leica BLK3D made its debut at HxGN LIVE 2018. The professionals at Spar 3D were on hand to take a first look and share their thoughts.

At HxGNLive this year, Leica Geosystems dropped two new products. Up first was the RTC 360, a terrestrial lidar scanner that offers fully automated in-field registration. Up second was something a bit more unexpected, a smartphone-sized device that gives you 3D data in exchange for an absolute bare minimum of effort. Leica is positioning the BLK3D as the perfect tool for skilled construction trades that need fast accurate measurements, but not necessarily full models. Think of it as falling somewhere between a BLK360 a disto.
