VP of Sales, West Coast Customs

Review

“The Artec Leo is an impressive machine that’s completely unencumbered by its predecessor’s cables and wires. This is a machine that takes 3D scanning to new levels.”

All3DP.com

Ready. Set. Scan.

Despite the advanced technology behind it, 3D scanning isn’t rocket science. See how you can start scanning with Leo in four easy steps.

Leo does the heavy lifting: You just point & shoot.

Interactive real-time scanning hints, hybrid target-free tracking system, smart scanning modes for faster data processing – just a few things that make our Leo the easiest 3D scanner to use. Just pick it up, point at whatever you want to scan, and hit that start button. Leo will take care of the rest.
Leo does the heavy lifting

Smart data capture, no targets needed.

Leo’s state-of-the-art hybrid geometry and texture tracking frees you up from using any additional equipment like targets or markers for stable scanning. You can just point it at the object and start scanning. It’s that easy.

Smart data capture, no targets needed.

Distance color map to aid scanning.

To help you keep the optimal distance to the object during scanning and thus capture more data in less time, Leo has visual aids in place. The surface you're scanning will be displayed in red on Leo's screen if you're holding the scanner too close to it, or blue if the distance is too great. And if it’s green? All systems go – you're doing everything right.

Distance color map to aid scanning.

Never miss a spot.

Smart surface quality indicator on the display lets you see which areas have been captured completely, and which require additional attention, f.ex. more frames or more coverage from different angles. It also gives you hints if you are scanning too fast or holding the scanner too far.

Never miss a spot.

Seamlessly pause and resume scanning whenever you need.

When you’re ready to continue, Leo will pick up from where you left off, and add the new data to the existing project.

Seamlessly pause and resume scanning whenever you need.

Smart scanning, less processing.

Powered by proprietary AI technology, Leo captures only the data you need – more intelligence for less processing time and cleanup work.

With Leo’s scan-to-cloud feature, you are no longer limited by location, or hardware. Right on your browser from anywhere in the world, team members can contribute their expertise to the same project. Your scans can process while you travel back from the field, and parallel projects can run simultaneously.

Collaborate. Anywhere.

Capture both fine details and larger parts with a single scanning solution.

Capture both fine details and larger parts with a single scanning solution.

With a 160,000 cm-cubed capture zone, Leo is truly versatile when it comes to size. It excels at capturing both medium-sized (20-50 cm) and large (50-200 cm) objects and surfaces. However, if paired with a powerful computer, it can take on even very large objects (200+ cm) or even entire spaces, such as rooms or crime scenes.

Typical objects for Leo:
  • Gearboxes, castings
  • Automotive parts
  • Turbines, ship propellers, small boats
  • Statues, and the human body
  • Furniture and room interiors
  • Crime scenes

Wireless scanning, smart data capture and so much more, right in your hands? It’s time to rethink what a scanner can do.

Got a question about Artec Leo 3D scanner?

  • What is HD Mode for Artec Leo?

    HD is a scanning mode powered by artificial intelligence algorithms that allows you to create sharper, cleaner, and far more detailed 3D models with a resolution 2X higher than that of the original SD data. In HD Mode, a resolution of up to 0.2 mm can be achieved and your Leo can capture much smaller and thinner elements, hard-to-reach areas, black and shiny surfaces and other parts that were difficult or impossible to capture before. HD Mode is available for Leo and Eva scanners running Artec Studio 15.1 or higher.

    Find more information about HD Mode here.

  • What types of objects can I scan with Artec Leo?

    Thanks to its extended field of view, Leo excels at capturing both medium-sized objects such as gearboxes, castings, furniture, statues, and the human body, as well as large objects like automotive parts, turbines, ship propellers, small boats, and room interiors.

  • How is Leo different from other scanners?

    Leo stands out by being completely wireless. Unlike other 3D scanners that need to be connected to a computer or tablet to display scanning results, Leo has an integrated computer and touch screen onboard, where you can see results in real-time.

  • Why is it important that Artec Leo is completely wireless?

    When it comes to 3D scanning of medium and large objects, such as cars or airplanes for example, portability is key. A regular 3D scanner connected to a PC for scanning can be inconvenient to carry around and maneuver, especially for hard-to-reach areas. With Leo, this is not an issue. You can walk around the object holding the Leo like you would a video camera, without worrying about the wires that could get in your way, or needing to switch to a different screen to see the results. It’s all there, conveniently combined in one single unit.

Accuracy guaranteed

Go about your work confident that the 2022 Artec Leo will consistently provide the accurate, clean, sharp results demanded of top-tier, professional precision instruments. Your extensively tested device comes with a calibration certificate to guarantee performance, and temperature control for regulated results – plus, you’ll never lose this accuracy with Leo’s specially designed calibration board.

Calibration certificate

To test Leo’s accuracy, we scan calibrated reference objects in different positions within the scanner's working volume, using different parts of the scanner’s sensor, and at different distances. This way, we ensure every scanner we ship provides unfaltering accuracy.

Calibration certificate

Auto temperature control

Leo now comes with software enhancements that regulate the scanner’s operation to keep its components at optimum operating temperature. This helps ensure that your device’s accuracy is not affected by temperature changes that might have subtle effects on readings from internal components.

Auto temperature control

Leo Calibration Kit

We understand that you might be using your device in operating conditions different from those in which it was tested and calibrated. Equip yourself with our new Leo Calibration Kit which you can use to refine Leo’s parameters, and to eliminate calibration errors that might have crept in during shipping. Pre-order yours today!

Leo Calibration Kit

Sharper, cleaner, and more detailed scan data

Thanks to the new reconstruction algorithm, the data you capture with Leo is now sharper, cleaner and more detailed than before, all in SD mode.

Sharper, cleaner, and more detailed scan data

Smarter capture for superior color

Even color, every time

Texture too dark or too light? Not a problem. Leo now automatically adjusts the texture’s brightness when scanning in close proximity. This means that even when lighting conditions are unstable, you’ll get even-lit 3D models, every time.

Even color, every time

Smaller projects, faster processing

The size of the texture has been twice reduced, thanks to the new texture optimization algorithm, resulting in faster project loading and processing, and reduced size of the whole Leo project.
