How to Laser Measure With a BLK3D Imager

Posted by Kevin Vaughan on Tue, Mar 17, 2020 @ 10:15 AM

This is part two of our multi-part series regarding the mobile applications of the innovative Leica BLK3D Imager. Last time, we explored capturing reality via photogrammetry - the ability to take measurements from stereo image photos.

 

Now, we detail how to take extremely precise laser measurement distance readings with the BLK3D for general distance, verification, or point-to-point calculations.

 

It is important to point out that the Laser Measure function is included out of the box, in the basic version of the device - no software upgrades are needed.
