3D Laser Scanning technology has been around for years, but there has been many hurdles to jump over in order to use the technology. The biggest being the size and weight of the sensors being used. Another major factor was the processing of the terabytes of data. Leica has introduced their solutions to these issues with the Leica BLK360 Laser Scanner and Leica Register 360 office software. I performed a test scan with the BLK360 of a Lighthouse structure outside my subdivisio
This comparison began with a P40 Demo for a graphics design group. The customer wanted to see how the Leica P40 ScanStation would do with St Mary's Cathedral. Needless to say the P40 performed tremendously and got a great scan in only 1hour 30mins with 4 setups on the highest resolution. After doing this demo other customers who owned C10 & P20 ScanStations inquired how theirs compared. So I went back to the Cathedral and replicated the same demo for a simple comparison.
