Large room? No right angles? Skewed walls? Many details? Difficult to reach? No cause to worry: The Leica 3D Disto measures everything you need. Ladder? Mobile access platform? You can leave them back at base. No tripod on hand? Makes no difference – simply place the 3D Disto on a table or the floor. Levelling up? Not necessary. Photographs for the records? No problem, the in-built camera provides the pictures.

The Leica 3D Disto is a robust, precisely manufactured measuring instrument. A highly accurate combination of distance and angle measurements determine the precise position of each point targeted with the integral camera and captured with the laser beam. In short: the Leica 3D Disto detects the location and the height of the target point.

Leica 3D Disto

Stay in control - in whatever shape of room. Capture and record distances, areas, inclinations, and angles effortlessly, even for inaccessible points. Forgotten measurements and handwriting errors are things of the past.
Room scan

Whether in fully automatic or manual mode: you can measure complete rooms, walls, windows, structural connections or stairs – from only one station point.

Right to the point. Whether ceiling grid or project layout for floors or walls – the Leica 3D Disto projects your design onto any surface – point for point.

Quick tools inspire the user: establish plumb, create level reference points, or precisely transfer offsets or locations.


It can do everything
  • Measure plan position, height and distance, in all three spatial axes
  • Intuitive user guidance from Assistants
  • Measure from one station – every visible point can be measured by targeting with the visible laser dot – without the need to walk to the target
  • Measure to difficult-to-reach points, such as roof edges
  • As-built records of ceiling, floor and roof surfaces, volumes, inclination, falls, height differences, angles
  • Plumbing of points, parallel offsetting of axis, levelling, transferring levels from wall to wall. Forget spirit level and measuring tapes!
  • Realtime display of measurements as drawings on the screen
  • Positionally accurate representation of the measured points in the camera display
  • Pocket calculator
  • Recording information in the form of standard tables, photos, DXF files, text files at the press of a button
  • Remote control measurements
  • Data import and export on PC and USB stick
