Leica GZM3 Target Plate for Countertop 820943 SIDE


The Leica Geosystems GZM3 Target Plate is designed to improve the workflow of measuring templates and countertops by making inaccurate edge measurements a thing of the past.

Used in combination with a 3D Disto or any other Leica DISTO, the GZM3 Target Plate accelerates the process of measuring to corners, curves and flat surfaces from any position.

The speed and precision of the 3D Disto brings unprecedented efficiency to applications like:

  • Creating CAD templates: CNC is only good as your file. A 3D Disto is the bridge between reality and CAD.   When you are cutting to fit and you know your original measurements are accurate, you can cut even the most expensive materials with confidence.
  • 3D Visualization and Navigation: The upgraded Leica 3D Disto Software for smart devices using Windows® now displays results in three dimensions. With the 3D navigation, it is even easier to check measured points.
  • Capturing As-Built Measurements: The best way to eliminate surprises later in the job is to know what you are starting with.  The 3D Disto accurately captures 3D coordinates with the precision you need for planning. If your work involves expensive materials that are difficult to cut, transport or are processed off-site, you know accurate “as-built” measurements are critical.
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM) :  Take DXF data directly into your Windows tablet and use the 3D Disto to layout anchor points, transfer heights or verify critical construction locations.

Measure once, cut once.

No matter what you are doing with a 3D Disto, accuracy is paramount. Since form follows function, the 3D Disto is a cross between a surveyor’s robotic total station and a handheld DISTO. 

Like a robotic total station, the 3D Disto's horizontal and vertical turning axes are motorized -- get the laser point close to the right starting point manually, aim using the video feed by tapping your target on either the Control Unit tablet or a Windows tablet, then watch the 3D Disto mico-adjust until the laser point is in the crosshairs.

The laser gets the glory, but to measure to 1mm accuracy @ 10m (±1/16” accuracy @ 33’) the 3D Disto measures  horizontal angle, vertical angle and a slope distance with angle sensors borrowed from our total stations -- technology Leica Geosystems has been refining for over 90 years.
