Nine Major Benefits of Using Handheld Lidar

When handheld lidar scanners entered the market, the industry started to ask the usual questions: Will they replace the documentation tools I already use? Will buying one make me want to sell my terrestrial lidar and laser disto?

Handheld Lidar in the Land of Ice and Snow (and Cold)

Sooner or later, you are bound to face rain, snow, wind, or another harsh weather condition that will stop you from working on your 3D capture job. But how cold can it get before your scanner stops working and forces you indoors?

What's the difference between SLAM algorithms?

While researching handheld lidar scanners, you'll probably scour spec sheets, cross-reference features, and read about software workflows. But that will get you only part of the way to understanding the market—you'll also need to compare the simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) a…

How to convert a point cloud to mesh

Point clouds are a treasure trove of useful measurement data. Unfortunately, that means the files can be very large and slow to work with—causing trouble if you need a lightweight file for visualization, scan-to-CAD, and scan-to-BIM workflows. One answer is to turn the raw point clouds …

Accuracy shootout: Handheld mobile lidar scanners vs. handheld laser meters

If you generate a lot of 2D floor plans (since you're reading this, you probably do), a handheld lidar scanner like our PX-80 offers meaningful advantages over a handheld laser meter. Handheld lidar scanners are much faster for capturing large assets, they record every possible measurem…
