The Artec Leo scanner can be used remotelyClick image to enlargeThe Artec LEO 3D scanner offers onboard automatic processing with an integrated touch panel viewer, freeing users from being tied to a computer during data capture.

Produced by Artec 3D and distributed by Exact Metrology, the scanner has a 3D reconstruction rate of 80 frames per second, making it the fastest professional scanner on the market. With its large field of view, it scans and processes large objects and scenes quickly and accurately.

Artec LEO features data acquisition up to 4 million points/second, with a working range of .35-1.2 metres, 3D resolution up to .5 mm and 3D point accuracy up to .1mm.

The scanner’s NVIDIA JetsonTM platform features a Quad-core ARM Cortex -A57 MPCore CPU and NVIDIA MaxwellTM 1 TFLOPS GPU with 256 NVIDIA CUDA Cores; a built-in 9 DoF inertial system- accelerometer, gyro and compass, allowing the scanner to understand its position and environment.

A two-in-one optical system provides exact texturing to geometry mapping.

The Artec LEO can scan in sunlight, as well as capture dark and shiny objects. Simply point at your object and shoot. There is no need to stick targets and remove them. The texture resolution is 2.3 mp.

This handheld scanner is equipped with a 4-in. LCD screen and 3D light source provided by Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser technology. With no need to connect to a computer or to plug in to a main power source, users can hold the scanner and walk around freely, scanning without the worry of wires or additional equipment. Artec LEO’s battery pack allows users to scan for up to 6 hours. Supplementary battery modules permit unlimited 3D scanning on expeditions or in remote areas. There are 2 cameras on this scanner. One is a range camera for 3D geometry and another is a color camera. The color camera captures color texture data. Besides built-in battery and wireless connectivity, Artec LEO can stream the scanning process to a second device.
