Leica Announces BLK Paired with Robot and Drone for Autonomous Scanning Home3D 12 4 daysGETMYVR (1014): $56,000 USD for the drone. Probably worth the investment if you can find numerous property management companies with large buildings that you can provide a very solid visual inspection annually, with a contract. If you can make 5 to 10,000 a week shooting with the drone that's about a half a million dollars a year in profit. I'd do it.

There are some late BLK360 units that are coming with a USB port installed in them(check your battery compartment). Leica has recently made firmware that allows to use that port for data transfer via a USB cable. Earlier BLK360 units do not have any USB port on them but have a placeholder for them to be installed. Somebody on laser scanning forum has explained that if you do not have the USB port Leica will install...

Do you own a BLK360? dave3d 28 6 monthsron0987 (1877): @toddwaddington I check that out regularly the only problem is getting an end user product for walk thru presentations. If you find a lower price scanner will MP support it. Talking to other scanner reps MP is exclusive to Leica. So I do not see any change. I have seen two.lower end scanners that supported high resolution 3d data and a doll house supported by the point cloud. Both very promising but both failed to launch.

Possible huge job estimated at 20 000- 27000 sqm Wingman 21 7 monthsdave3d (207): Wingman, We just did a building exterior today and though slow it came out great. Remember BLK is LINE OF SITE. Do that with every scan. Some things you can get to work with Pro2 will slap you with BLK. Average length as you said about 30 ft - your sheet said max 60 - I haven't gone that far. I pretty much stay 30ish. Make sure it's wide open on the BLK. If not move back to the Pro2.

High Density XYZ file to creat a game , is blk 360 good for this project? alirizacil 4 8 monthsWingman (2578): If you want to do it with Matterport you can only use a LiDAR camera that is supported by Matterport and it is BLK360. There may be some other cameras but I only hear people referring to Leica BLK360. As much as I read about it on forums related to LiDAR scanning it is not the best choice in LiDAR scanning world, Not sure(do not remember) if it's related to density but considering there are LiDARs that can see 100 and 300m probably it is an...

matterport & BLK export to CAD 3dshowcaseuk 6 9 monthsdave3d (207): Ps ....I use a BLK often. If you haven’t been load a stopwatch app on your smartphone. Set it for 3.5 min. That’s your Matterport scan time for BLK. If a large space draw your scan path and calculate time each way (BLK and pro2). Decide which you want. Don’t ever do a large scan without a scan plan. Consider time of day, sun height, etc. before you start. I’m not good at alignment in large spaces with Pro2. Not positive...

BLK360 with Theta Z1? Kumar 8 10 monthsHomePlanNZ (251): (Again in our experience), using the Z1 on a project will always degrade the 3D data compared to Pro2 and BLK. The Cortex process 'makes up' a 3D model based on imagery, which will always be inferior to laser (BLK) or infrared (Pro2) sensor data. If you then combine Z1+BLK, you are mixing bad with good = bad result. Issues were alignment both ways (Z1 scan, switch the BLK; BLK scan, switch to Z1). When changing devices we typically do about...

They have been so 'iPhone' recently, coupled with their Support/resourcing issues and the fading of the MSP programme, that those who operate with the higher end equipment and provide 3D services to others have been getting very, very nervous about where Matterport is heading. I recall seeing a note a while back (can't remember where - email...
How many feet between Matterport April Tags with a Leica BLK360? leonherbert 1 1 yearleonherbert (901): I am doing some big projects with a BLK360 soon. I will be using April tags. I know matterport recommends 15 feet apart. Does that apply with the BLK360 as well? My thinking is that it is about the capture app recognising the actual image so if the image is to far away it would not recognise it. Is it possible to use April tags strategically, have sections which has tags and areas with more information not have tags. I used april tags...

What depends on what? Accuracy depends on software or on 3D-scanner? SamSon_NewSpace3D 3 2 yearsron0987 (1877): @SamSon_NewSpace3D it actually can be both, you can have the best equipment like the BLK360 and depending on your software your accuracy can drop. I regularly use a FARO scanner and process it thru FARO Scene software and can tweak the processing to bring the accuracy up. But like @JuMP said you can only get as good as the accuracy of the equipment. I have little experience with BLK360 and if you just need a point cloud then I would use the...

[R&D] Sharing the outcome of a multi-devices experiment Tosolini 5 2 yearsTosolini (3748): https://tosolini.com/wp-content/uploads/B29-Z1-vs-Pro1-1-scaled.png One last learning. Comparing the image quality of a tour done with the Z1 today with the same tour done three years ago with MP Pro1, the resolution of the Z1 seems superior than MP Pro1 (the dollhouse is not as clean though). Which makes me think that for regular spaces like a home, you can replace the Pro1 with the Z1 and travel much lighter.

BLK360 Help Scanning Advice Complete Resort Hotel Gerhard 11 2 yearsTosolini (3748): Sounds like a good learning experience overall, although frustrating because of the tech limitations. The original BLK app is one of the worst UI I've experienced and I try to avoid it. The benefit of going HDR3 is that you could use the Point Cloud in other apps if necessary, but it doesn't seem to be a requirement. All the best and congrats on the multi location contract.

Leica introduces BLK2GO; wonder if it is Matterport Compatible? DanSmigrod 10 2 yearsleonherbert (901): The BlK347 type technology is already in use with law enforcement. NYPD uses something like that, I think they just use AI to identify objects that were not in a video stream before. This technology has been around for quite a while. I believe this would be rather expensive, compared to just using a video feed. But I do not know the particulars.

BLK3d use with Matterport or Cupix AnjumDesign 1 3 yearsAnjumDesign (33): I have seen recent video of BLK3d where lines have been drawn on 3d picture taken by BLK3d. Has anybody tried it? Can pictures taken by blk3d could be used in cupix or in materport to create floorplans?

Landscape CAD Tette99 12 3 yearsHelloPado (154): Im biased toward Pix4D because of its overall service and quality of output deliverables. I've used drone Deploy also. Either are suitable for your application. Although... neither will be beneficial for surveying terrain because you're working with what looks like a level lot. For kicks and giggles... will you give me the address and let me see what i can find.

Does the BLK360 panoramic photos contain exif metadata of the xyz position? DanSmigrod 2 3 yearsMetroplex360 (9423): It creates E57 files. If it contained XYZ positional data, it would be 0,0,0 as each scan would be in the center of its own world. Only when these are registered ("aligned") to make a larger model, would there be an X, Y, Z value for each point cloud.
MP Betas>360Placement, Face Blurring, BLK360 DanSmigrod 15 3 yearsDanSmigrod (26171): @Metroplex360 Wrong Matterport Product Team implemented Face Blurring. Nice that they took the initiative. Right idea. Wrong implementation. This needs to be a Matterport Workshop feature: not a Matterport Capture feature. CUPIX nailed it. Matterport should follow their lead. Dan

Would you scan a cruise ship with Matterport? Right solution? DanSmigrod 9 3 yearsAirborneworks (1): I agree the BLK-360 is a great option with the range and semi auto registration, while the matterport can get the HD imaging overlay, that would be a good gig scanning a fleet of cruise ships.

BLK 360 + matterport> 3D CAD 3dR 9 3 yearslauks (19): i was wondering if the BLK360 added any accuracy to the model (it should, but as MP does a lot of decimation, I am not sure about this.

You can compare the difference between HDR2 and HDR off in the corner of the yard where I scanned by the deck chair and behind the deck char.

Matterport and Leica partnering in 2018 PeterMcCready 18 4 yearsandreabortolot (199): @Dan Good news! Hopefully we could integrate other scanners.Indeed BLK360 is quite expensive.I don't see reasonable for a MP photographer spend 15k only to have a more detailed dollhouse. Bear in mind this scanner don't align scans as Mp do...They have to be georeferenced manually in post production. I see more reasonable (if necessary) purchase a 5k scanner from a Uk based company called Effortless.

Couldn't be happier to see more and more of these solutions available on the market. Good bye Faro & complicated post-scan work ! I still have high expectation from the BLK360 given it is designed to work with the Autodesk Suite.
Leica blk360 scanner Jamie 13 5 yearsJamie (1849): Thanks for the info Ron. I do like the faro, and the 330 has an amazing Scanning range. I'm potentially looking at mounting this on one of our drones, so the size and weight is appealing. I also looked at the Zeb1, but it scans less points per second and the cost is comparable. It also has a processing fee similar to matterport as well. I'm more interested in elevation of the land, but of course building as well. Will have to see which...
New MP-ad & landing page for Pointcloud mori 15 5 yearsAlex_iGuide (361): With more scans you collect more data and, as a minimum, that data will result in a denser point cloud and finer mesh. That will increase computation time and storage requirements, so MP must draw a line somewhere for practical reasons and may limit how dense the point cloud is and how fine the mesh is that they store and make available for download. If you leap-frog along the wall with more scans, the overall room length error will be smaller...
