4 Reasons To Rent A Leica BLK360

 

Let's be honest, the launch of the Leica BLK 360 was surrounded with significant hype and followed by slow production and delayed deliveries. That combination has prevented several professionals in the laser scanning industry from taking a more serious look at this revolutionizing piece of equipment. That's why we wanted to give you 4 reasons we feel you should jump on this opportunity to rent the Leica BLK 360 for your next project.

ONE: The BLK 360 is the simplest scanner on the market.

For those who have been in the scanning industry for some time, you know how important it is to get familiar with your machine and its settings. Professionals considering adding scanning services to their offerings, these technical issues intimidate them and delay or prevent the adoption of scanning technology.

The BLK 360 is extremely simple to use. If you can push a single button, then you're in business. The scanner literally has a single button on the front that turns it on and then initiates the scan. All of Virtual 3D Group's renters also receive and iPad Pro with Recap Pro already installed. The scanner automatically uploads the scan and image data directly to Recap where you can export it to your Revit environment.

TWO: The BLK 360 is the fastest scanner on the market. 

The connection between the BLK 360 and the Recap Pro app significantly improves the speed of your project. Literally, the data from the scan is able to be reviewed within a few minutes of the scan being completed. You can quickly review the scan for blind spots or other issues and address them in the moment. Once your scans have all been completed, you just upload the project to Revit which takes 30 minutes or less. For those who have used other scanning machines, you know this is lightening fast.

THREE: The BLK 360 is the most versatile scanner on the market.

While Virtual 3D Group is committed to supporting the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries, the BLK 360 is being use in some of the widest applications of scanning in the industry. Here is a great example of really interesting work being done int he AEC industries with the BLK 360. Others are looking to the BLK 360 to use in cinematography, interior design, virtual reality, augmented reality, and video game production. The point is, the Leica BLK 360 is up for any job you can dream up.

Aside from the applications of the BLK 360, another exciting feature is the fact that it has an awareness of its position within a space. For larger projects, the BLK 360 understands where you position it within the room and then tracks where you move it to within the space for the second scan. The Recap Pro application then ties the point cloud data together so that you end up with a comprehensive scan of the space.

FOUR: The BLK 360 is the most affordable scanner on the market.

With most scanners retailing for $70,000 to $120,000+, the BLK 360 is a steal at $18,500. We couldn't be more excited for how accessible Leica is making laser scanning to industries and companies that didn't have the budget to justify the high price of previous scanners. Now Virtual 3D Group is making this scanner available for rent. At $400 per day or $2,000 for the week, you can use this scanner on your next project.
