I'm not doing huge projects, more like a couple of dozen scans in a day
I did 70 scans in 5.5hrs on site. It's taken me about the same time to register the data. If I use the BLK scanner again, then I'll get an adapter to use it with a proper tripod. Now the RTC360 has come along, I'd only use a BLK as a last resort (or if space were super restricted).

One time I had some out of level scans but it turned out to be an issue with R360, not the scanner.
Sorry to derail the thread but do you mind elaborating on your issue with Register 360? We run a BLK and Register360 and have experienced some issues with scans not being leveled.

That only happened to me once and it was when I was in the middle of a steep learning curve where there were lots of other issues and I can't remember exactly what the solution was. I think it was an out of date firmware. I might have also just have started over with a fresh version of the project.

Cable is never going to happen. Nor is a powered battery unit (a battery shell with permanent power supply).

We need a third party to develop one. I reckon every single BLK owner would buy one!
COULD NOT AGREE MORE! although a cable would power it at same time as it must when they are servicing the thing as the battery is in the way of port I think! Anyone tried a cable?
