You Will Love Laser Scanning with this Hardware

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 15:48:57 -0700

Just over a week ago I got to use the new Leica Geosystem’s BLK360 laser scanner on a project.

It was about the weight of a large mug of coffee plus a light tripod and then the iPad to run Autodesk ReCap Pro for mobile app. I had...
