The high-precision Leica 3D Disto is used whenever the use of conventional measuring tools is only possible with a great deal of time and effort. The intelligent software on your Windows® device controls the Leica 3D Disto, automatically carries out all complicated calculations in the background and supplies all the relevant information you need. The Leica 3D Disto is the perfect tool – reliable, economical and very easy to operate. An investment that soon pays for itself.

3D measuring just became easy - No square corners? Slanted walls? Lots of detail? Staircases? Difficult to reach areas? No need to worry: the rugged Leica 3D Disto measures it all. The Leica 3D Disto cleverly combines distance and 360° angle measurements to determine the precise position of each measured point and its relationship in 3 Dimensions. The integrated camera relays images of the point being measured to the wireless touchscreen tablet and the Leica Disto laser captures the distance remotely. You can measure everything from complete rooms, walls, windows, structural elements or stairs etc. from one stationary point.

In short: the Leica 3D Disto detects the location and height of target points. Data is captured and displayed on your tablet screen or can be exported into packages such as Cad for further processing.  The result: an efficient, precise, and fast laser measuring tool that is revolutionarily, making even the hardest measuring tasks easy to handle.

Leica 3D Disto Software for Windows - What's New?

3D Disto version 4.0 software for Windows

The latest version of Leica 3D Disto Software for Windows® has landed. Version 4.0 offers a clear 3D view with some basic CAD tools to help measure, move and still be extremly accurate. It now works direct with your Windows desktop PC, laptop or tablet PC. And features a new DWG export. Just turn on and start measuring, the Leica 3D Disto has never been easier.

Leica 3D Disto - Overview

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 DISTO D3 - multifunctional end piece

Scanning and measurement

With the Leica 3D Disto you can measure everything from simple distances to complicated spaces on site to obtain all the data you require – either automatically or manually.

Leica DISTO D3 - tilt measurement

With Leica 3D Disto software for Windows®

With our intuitive software for your Windows® device you not only control the Leica 3D Disto, but also see directly what you have measured – either as a live image supplied by the integrated camera or as a three-dimensional model.

Leica DISTO D3 - multifunctional end piece

Simple data export

All recorded data is collected for each project and exported by simply pressing a button. The software automatically generates the different document formats that you need for subsequent processing. You can therefore transfer DWG or DXF files, images, calculation or text data to your computer workstation at the office as required.

Leica DISTO D3 - multiple functions

Exact planning in the office

With the high-precision data that the Leica 3D Disto supplies you can realistically create and then produce your projects in your customary software environment with maximum possible precision!

Maximum assembly time reduction

With the optimised workflow from scanning to production you can minimise expensive assembly times and meet high optical component fitting accuracy demands with ease.


It can do everything

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 US B stick

Additional information

Location, height, and distance can now be measured in XYZ from one location, in one measurement. It has never been easier to create as-built records of ceiling, floor, and roof surfaces; volumes; slopes; height differences; angles; and much more. Plumb points despite obstacles – no problem!
The rugged, non-slip sensor can be placed on any stable surface or mounted on a tripod using the 5/8"-11 thread.

The Leica 3D Disto is controlled by your Windows device or by remote control. Points are aimed at and measurements triggered on the clear, high-resolution screen and the 8x zoom is perfect for longer distances.

Users will be amazed by the intuitive user interface. “Wizards” assist with more complex measuring tasks. The real-time display of measurements as drawings on the screen allow on-site completeness checks. At the press of a button data is recorded in standard tables, photos, DXF, and text files. It is so easy!
