Leica 3D Disto – New software version 2.0 with improved functionality

Since more than one year, the Leica 3D Disto redefines the market for measurement tools. As being first in its category, the Leica 3D Disto is a unique tool for measurement and projection, leveling and easy scanning. The new software version 2.0 introduces new features such as CAD tools for drawing completion in the field, a new surface scan option and more.

As-built measurement was never easier when using the Leica 3D Disto. The intuitive interface guides the user through all steps of the process.

New with software version 2.0 is the surface scan option that allows measuring a grid of points fully automatically. The user can chose the grid on a vertical or horizontal surface, or even on a tilted free-defined form. All scanning data are exported in one step in standard file formats such as DXF, commonly used in the industry for drawing data exchange.

Second innovation are the drawing tools. During the as-built process, the drawing tools are required in many cases for completion of parts of the drawing e.g. for missing corners, hidden points and other features that are difficult to obtain from the current setup location.

Leica Geosystems is always responsive to our customers’ wishes and suggestions, thus the new software contains even more market driven improvements:

Software version 2.0 features of the Leica 3D Disto

  • Surface Scan option. This new scanning option enables the user capturing three-dimensional structures or complex surfaces by defining a simple grid of points to be subsequently scanned.
  • Leica 3D Disto CAD tools allow capturing inaccessible points by measuring surrounding points, speeding up the measurement process by reducing the need of taking manual notes or attempting to relocate for capturing a point directly.
  • Clever ideas for workflow improvements make the software usage smoother than anytime before.
  • Projector, the easiest layout and projection tool is now even better and more powerful than ever: with the option to define the surface strictly horizontal or vertical, it allows a perfect fit of layout elements versus the ideal plumb- or waterline, e.g. for façade or ceiling layouts.
