The Leica BLK3D - What Is It and Who Is It For?
What is the BLK3D?
The Leica BLK3D is a professional measuring device that allows you take hyper accurate measurements from a picture.
Who benefits the most from this technology?
This tech is very valuable for site inspection and validation documentation for infrastructure projects. It allows workers to take photos for documentation, take the measurements from the photos, and share this data easily with anyone involved on the project.
In addition, general contractors and anyone in the estimation business can also benefit from this tech. In many cases, estimators miss crucial measurements causing them to go back to the job site costing the company time and money. With the BLK3D, if the estimator took a picture, they could get their measurements easily and would not have to go back to the job to get a measurement.
How does this differ from the Leica Disto Line?
The BLK3D is step up from Leica’s Disto Line. It has most of the same features as a Disto, but allows a user to take a picture and obtain measurable data from that picture. None of the Disto’s can do so.
- Built in distance meter with a range of 828 FT allowing users to take measurements on the fly quickly and easy.
- The BLK3D also has built in internet connectivity so you can check emails, log on the web, and download apps. The device does not have a SIM card, but can make calls via the internet with the appropriate app such as WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook, etc.
