Leica releases handheld 3D measurement tool
Leica’s BLK3D creates images that contain precise three-dimensional measurements. The combination of a calibrated stereo-camera, advanced algorithms and real-time edge computing fused with Electronic Distance Measurement (EDM) technology allow the user to measure in their image – on the handheld imager, on the desktop, on-site, or in the office. Auto-Snapping uses computer vision technologies to select the right points for measurements. Users can create floorplans and import existing ones, add measurable images, and document construction progress with multiple images over time. The measurable images can be stored on the device and on a desktop. Measurable images can be tagged by project using searchable keywords for easy recall, and the images can also be shared in multiple formats.
