Paracosm's PX-80 handheld lidar is fast and flexible enough to be your standalone scanner

Paracosm’s PX-80 handheld lidar scanner has come a long since they introduced it to the market early last year. The company says the device has been in high demand not only in AEC, but in a number of industries, with users capturing everything from dense Japanese forests to comprehensive site surveys of US Army bases.

Contributing to this popularity, no doubt, are the impressive specs that the PX-80 offers for a handheld device. It boasts 360° lidar capture at an accuracy of ±2-3 cm, with 300,000 points per second, and at ranges up to 100 m. On top, you’ll find an HD camera that captures up to 50fps with a 360° by 250° field of view. For easy control and visual feedback on progress, the device includes a scanning app on an iPad mini which mounts on the handle.
