  • heliguy™ partners with XGRIDS to offer its end-to-end ecosystem of 3D modelling technology;
  • XGRIDS handheld scanners - the Lixel L2 and Lixel K1 - enable rapid mobile mapping and collect centimetre-accurate, highly-detailed 3D models. The L2 can also be drone-mounted;
  • XGRIDS has launched Lixel CyberColour (LCC) studio: Facilitating the creation of ultra-realistic, large-scale 3D models through the technique of Gaussian Splatting;
  • heliguy™ has an in-house surveying department to support the integration of XGRIDS technology into your workflows.        

Survey specialist heliguy™ has partnered with XGRIDS, a leading provider of 3D intelligent technology.

The XGRIDS product ecosystem unlocks the potential of 3D data, enabling professionals to benefit from detailed and realistic environment reconstruction.

XGRIDS provides an end-to-end workflow solution, comprising compact handheld 3D scanners and a complementary software suite.

At its core is the recently-launched Lixel CyberColour (LCC) studio, representing a ground-breaking advancement in 3D content generation.



Utilising a combination of multi-SLAM algorithms and optimised 3DGS technology, LCC creates ultra-realistic, large-scale 3D models through Gaussian Splatting.

This technique employs machine learning to manipulate millions of Gaussian ellipsoids, merging and/or splitting them to generate photorealistic 3D scenes.

It overcomes the modelling challenges of large spaces and complex environments and provides unprecedented immersive experiences.

LCC integrates with professional 3D software and platforms and is compatible with XGRIDS’ hardware, including the Lixel L2 32 channel and 16 channel, and Lixel K1.

The L2 and K1 are professional SLAM-based handheld scanners, providing centimetre-accuracy, real-time scanning and modelling capabilities, and instant colour point cloud generation. The L2 can also be drone-mounted.



SLAM technology enables users to deploy the Lixel L2 and K1 in diverse and complex scenarios, including underground.

They reduce operational time and cost, and can be used for applications such as construction, mining and aggregates, real estate, public safety, leisure and tourism, and Metaverse.

Richard Dunlop, survey lead at heliguy™, said: “We are delighted to partner with XGRIDS. The XGRIDS ecosystem revolutionises 3D content production, empowering on-the-go mapping across a range of industries.

“Lixel CyberColour is a particularly exciting introduction to the market and through the innovative application of Gaussian Splatting techniques, it enables users to create vast 3D reconstructions for highly-immersive experiences and the creation of detailed and ultra-realistic models.”
