With the BLK360, Leica redefined the 3D Scanning Space in terms of features and Cost. With the new RTC360 (or BLK360 on Steroids), Leica brings us a Tier 1 Reality Capture solution that allows users to document and capture their environments in 3D, improving efficiency and productivity in the field and in the office through fast, simple-to-use, accurate, and portable hardware and software. The RTC360 3D laser scanner is the solution for professionals to manage project complexities with accurate and reliable 3D representations.
Capture scans, including enriching High-Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery, in less than two minutes. Automatically record your moves from station to station to pre-register your scans in the field without manual intervention. Augment your data capture with information tags illustrating the opportunities for better planning, reflect site reality, and boost your teams’ situational awareness.
Again, the RTC360 has Real-Time Point-Cloud Registration In The Field. Leica has named the technology VIS for Visual Inertial System. VIS performs automatic point cloud alignment in the field without user interaction. Because Leica designed the RTC360 for people who use 3D data but are not actively scanning (yet), they designed the system with an eye on workflow simplification. Basically, VIS uses the 3D coordinates of features—like the edges of a door, tanks, pipe supports – to track your position as you move within your scanning area. This has been used by other vendors but has always added drift (compounding positioning errors as you move positions in your site – imagine a piece of paper rolling up at the edges). The VIS System solves the drift issue by pulling in data from all the other on-board sensors to stabilize it and remove the drift – Fast, agile and precise 3D reality capture!

The Specifications Speak Volumes:
Fast: The new Leica RTC360 laser scanner makes 3D reality capture faster than ever before. With a measuring rate of up to 2 million points per second and advanced HDR imaging system, the creation of colored 3D point clouds can be completed in under two minutes. Plus, automated targetless field registration and the seamless, automated transfer of data from site to office reduce time spent in the field and further maximizes productivity.
Agile: Small and lightweight, the Leica RTC360 scanner’s portable design and collapsible tripod mean it’s compact enough to fit into most backpacks, ready to be taken anywhere. Once on-site, easy-to-use, one-button operation makes for fast, hassle-free scanning
Precise: Low noise data allows for better images, resulting in crisp, high-quality scans that are rich in detail and ready for use in a range of applications. Combined with Cyclone FIELD 360 software for automated registration in the field, the Leica RTC360 scanner offers outstanding precision that can be checked on-site.
Pre-Registration in the Field: On-site the user can automatically capture, register and examine scan and image data. The user interface combines easy handling of complex calculations with a graphical user guidance that offers a remarkable user experience, also for novice users.
For small areas, fill-in and with the ability to larger spaces in a pinch, the BLK360 has no equals. The RTC360 is the BLK360 on steroids: 3D Capture in large areas: quicker, faster and with higher precision. The RTC360 brings to market a new level of 3D scanning. Finally, Leica closes out the high end with the P-Series: Dual Axis Compensation, Target Acquisition, Working on Grid, Survey Grade, and -20 to +50 Operating Temp Range.
