The Ultimate in 3D Scanning Mobility

The winner of numerous industry awards for innovation, the Artec Leo is the first 3D scanner to display your object on the integrated HD display. Integrating these onboard graphics and storage allows you to have a totally wireless handheld scanning experience. The exceptionally high frame rate (80 frames per second), large field of view, and accelerometer allow it to scan extremely fast without losing tracking or precision. The Leo also uses an advanced color camera that produces photorealistic scans with highly accurate texture mapping.

Services & Customer Benefits

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you have multiple batteries and change them out?

Yes, the Leo allows you to hot swap batteries on the fly. Two-slot battery chargers are available so you can continuously rotate without stopping the scan process.

How large of objects can I scan with the Artec Leo?

The Leo does not have a hard size limit so this depends largely on your available computer power. While larger objects are possible, the Leo is generally considered a great fit for vehicle-size objects and smaller.

How long does a single battery last?

This depends on a few variable factors like how much the flash lamp is adjusting brightness to meet ambient conditions. Generally, a Leo battery will last several hours on a full charge.

Does all the post-processing happen onboard?

The Leo captures the data and stores it on an internal SSD but offers limited post processing onboard. The bulk of processing is done after offloading to a computer.

What kind of computer do I need for processing scans?

Artec scanners do not require an especially high-performance computer, though investing more in certain components – like the GPU – can result in greatly reduced processing times.

Is the Artec Leo good for scanning people and anatomy?

Yes. The method of capture used by Leo is exceptionally conducive to scanning people, and the alignment methods allow it to tolerate the micro-movements associated with live models, setting it apart from many other scanners. Experienced Artec users can routinely scan a complete human body in 1-2 minutes.

Can the Leo scan in bright, sunny conditions?

Leo can tolerate bright and direct sunlight significantly better than the vast majority of structured light scanners, but for the best experience it is still recommended to avoid very bright, direct sunlight wherever possible.

Can this scanner be used with targets or stickers?

Yes. While the main draw of the Leo is its ability to scan without targets, it is compatible with various 3rd party photogrammetry kits which allow it to be used with targets for greatly enhanced dimensional accuracy.
