Trimble’s new X7 3D laser scanner is packed with features, and
it assists professionals of all scanning levels in easily capturing precise 3D data in a time-bound manner to produce high-quality results.

Can you be part of a high-stakes construction project without the right scanning expertise? The answer is a yes, if you are planning to use Trimble’s new X7 3D laser scanner. According to the company, its new laser scanning solution assists professionals with no survey workflow background in easily getting precise and highly quality results in a time-bound manner.

Detailed information

“The idea is to capture every single layer of 3D information for informed decision-making. Some of the big advantages of X7 are that it is very simple to use and saves both time and energy, while ensuring quick data collection and processing,” emphasizes John Whitehead, Director of Sales and Distribution, Asia-Pacific for Trimble’s Geospatial vertical.
“The Trimble Perspective software integrated within the X7 provides unmatched functionalities. The X7 features simple and streamlined workflows. It is able to offer unique capabilities, including automatic calibration through the Trimble X-Drive, self-levelling and automatic registration through Trimble Registration Assist,” says Amit Saxena,

Regional Sales Manager-Geospatial, SAARC Region at Trimble. Built on the three principles of “simple, smart and professional”, the Trimble X7 is compact and is easy to carry anywhere in the field.

Opening new avenues

Since the scanner pretty much functions like a useful, everyday tool which does not require scanning expertise to operate, the X7 opens the avenues for more construction, surveying, industrial and forensics professionals to capture and deliver high-quality data. It also includes high-performance cameras to create panoramic images that can be integrated within projects. “This allows for the export of a fully registered, photo-colorized point cloud before even returning to the office. This way, scans and images can be captured, fully registered, refined, controlled and exported to a variety of established data format,” adds Saxena.

For surveyors, the X7 is a powerful tool that carries an IP55 rating for water and dust protection. It is also significantly lighter than previous models, weighing a total of 5.8kg. Just before its launch, a promotional video by Trimble showed it being able to be transported in a manageable, soft-sided backpack rather than a bulkier hard case. It also comes with a two-year warranty as an assurance for its ruggedness.

“For surveyors and geospatial professionals, the X7 3D laser scanner provides fast and balanced performance in both indoor and outdoor environments and can be used in numerous surveys,” explains Whitehead.
