June 13, 2018 – Hexagon AB, a global leader in digital solutions, today introduced another industry-first solution in its popular BLK line – the Leica BLK3D – a compact 3D handheld imager that improves productivity by enabling immediate and precise 3D measurements from any image it captures.
By combining measurement sensors, software, and on-device edge data processing capabilities, the BLK3D enables in-picture measurements with professional-grade accuracy. Every image captured by the BLK3D is a complete and precise 3D record. Its edge capabilities eliminate the need for network connections and/or cloud services, ensuring professionals can make faster decisions within their daily workflow – whether creating floor plans and estimating building installations or documenting construction progress and creating as-built facility documentation.
“The BLK3D is the latest addition to our award-winning BLK series,” said Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO. “The ability to capture, visualise, and index precise 3D measurement information directly from a 2D image raises the bar, setting new expectations for professionals looking for faster, more accurate ways to get the measurements they need. Not only that, it’s so easy to operate virtually anyone can use it.”
With the expanded functionality of the desktop software, users can create new projects and CAD-ready 3D models from their measurable images. BLK3D connects seamlessly to a laptop or desktop computer – via Wi-Fi or USB cable. Data is automatically synced and measurable images can be accessed, processed, and organised from the convenience of the desktop application.
