On Monday, media across the globe focused on the Notre-Dame cathedral fire in Paris. An iconic piece of Gothic architecture and a source of national pride and identity for France, the losses sustained by the fire are incomprehensible.

We started shipping BLK360s to customers a few months ago and the results we are seeing are incredible. Take a look below to see some of the initial scans and to hear the feedback from the field.

The point cloud was overlaid on a .tif image of a plumbing plan in CAD. I located 3 plumbing errors and was able to modify before slab was poured for a $1,500 savings.

The Newport Yacht Collaborative Uses Scan’s Data for Improved Interior Fittings

What makes the BLK360 so valuable for creators of all types is its versatility. We’ve seen how it can help restore architectural gems, virtually recreate Frank Lloyd Wright marvels and even construct Hollywood movie sets. Each of those structures is impressive, but they all involve spaces with right-angle corners and upright walls. What happens when you need to build something incredibly precise, but with practically no straight lines?

The accuracy of a BLK3D in-picture measurement is influenced by four variables:

  1. Distance to the object being measured.
  2. The baseline between the 3D images used to calculate the measurement points
  3. The orientation of the camera to the object being measured
  4. Light conditions, structure and texture of the object

First and Foremost

The closer you are, the more accurate your measurements will be.

Amey Roads NI As part of Northern Ireland’s ‘Building a Better Future’ strategy to make it a better place to ‘live, work, learn and grow’, Amey Roads NI (ARNI) was tasked with building, operating and delivering improvements to a strategic road network across Northern Ireland (DBFO Package 2). But managing such a complex infrastructure had its challenges - from costly road closures to interpreting hand drawings from the 1960s. ARNI had its work cut out, so they turned to the latest reality capture technology, the Leica BLK360, to create accurate 3D point clouds and images of their projects.
