ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING, & DESIGN

Corey Weiner is the founder of c2a.studio, an on-site as-built laser scanning service for architects, interior designers, builders, and engineers. As one of the first reality capture professionals to test the new Leica BLK360, he sat down with us to answer a few questions about his first impressions, performance improvements, and what it means for his AEC-heavy business.

MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT

Dinosaurs walking the earth. On-screen villains turning to dust before our eyes. The VFX industry is increasing its use of LiDAR, laser scanning, and reality capture technology to streamline production, create more realistic experiences, and save time and costs. We caught up with Allan McKay, a VFX supervisor, to see how he uses the BLK360 at work.

REAL ESTATE

What’s better than creating immersive high-definition 3D scans of your indoor built environment? Being able to scan outdoors and in large spaces to complete the picture.

CULTURAL HERITAGE

Elias Logan and the BLK360 tour the northernmost islands of the North Sea to the nethermost islands of the Mediterranean. From the Neolithic Ness settlements of Orkney to the mountaintop Medieval fortresses of the Occitanie, from the beefy Bronze Age nuraghe of Sardinia to the mysterious megalithic temples of Malta.
