I don't know if Scene can register BLK scans. You don't get any .fls files from BLK360 but the scan files are in a proprietary format .BLK.

I have registered BLK scans in Recap and I also tested registering in Cyclone Register 360 and Trimble Realworks.
I have tried two alternative workflows:
1. Load scans in the Recap app in an ipad, pre-register while scanning, then load the scans to Recap in a PC and re-register if necessary.
2. Load the scans directly from the scanner to PC via Leica BLK360 Data Manager and open the files in Cyclone Register 360 and register there.
Trimble Realworks cannot read .BLK files but there is a workaround: load the files in Recap, then export from Recap as an .e57 file (complete mode). Open the .e57 in Realworks and register or refine registration there.

Just want to throw this out there

If it is BLACK in color

The BLK360 won’t scan it

Just a hole where point data should be

Kind of a dealbreaker right there for any serious scan job as far as we are concerned

It’s a toy

Not a tool
