Leica DISTO D2 200ft Laser Distance Measurer

Amazon.com Price: $138.90 (as of 15/06/2019 15:32 PST- Details)

The Leica Disto D2 is a perfect choice for Architects that go to site very often and are looking for ways to speed the process up.

The Bluetooth option allows the measurements to go directly to your phone or tablet, saving you a lot of time and a common source of mistakes once you have learned how to effectively use it.

It has several measurement modes, which include area, distance, length, volume, continuous measurement, single indirect, stake out, and minimum/maximum. They can be very useful when, for example, calculating the costs of a new project through the areas. The single indirect measurement mode will help you measure points that for, whatever reason, cannot be reached directly. One example would be certain heights where there is no ceiling or horizontal plane on top, such as a balustrade.

With an accuracy of 1/16 inch (1.5 mm) and a range of 330 ft (100 m), it’s an excellent measuring tool for interiors in any kind of project.

This is already a fairly complex gadget so you will need a certain learning curve to make the most out of it. However, if you take a lot of measurements, you will dramatically improve your productivity once you are over the learning process.

The Leica Disto D2 is a perfect choice for Architects that go to site very often and are looking for ways to speed the process up of measuring in interiors. Although you will be able to use it in exteriors under certain circumstances, it has been designed to be used in interiors only so you should be mindful of that if you purchase it. It is, for us, one of the Best Laser Measures for Architects.

Its range, 330 ft (100 m), makes it suitable for any interior. What sets the Leica Disto D2 apart from its competitors within the same group is the Bluetooth function. With it, you can send the measurements directly to your phone or tablet, saving you both a lot of time and a common source of mistakes.

It has quite a few measurement modes, which include area, distance, length, volume, continuous measurement, single indirect, stake out, and minimum/maximum. What are the advantages of these measurement modes? For example, if you use areas to provide a quick estimation of costs, the Leica Disto D2 will calculate them for you. With the single indirect, the Leica Disto D2 will measure a point that is not reachable through measuring two other points and using Pythagoras. As this model cannot be mounted on a tripod, Leica recommends that this function is used for estimations only. With the stake out function, you will be able to check whether the sub-contractor has placed the studs for the dry walls at the correct centres.

You can measure in seconds what would take minutes (and two people) with a tape measure.

With an accuracy of 1/16 inch (1.5 mm), you get the standard for high-quality products at a fairly low cost.

Its 330 feet (100 m) range makes the Leica Disto D2 suitable for interiors of any project.

The backlit display will come in handy in areas with low or no light.

The intelligent end-piece allows measuring diagonals more accurately and aligning the base perfectly to corners or edges. The following video from Leica shows this feature perfectly.

This is already a fairly complex gadget so there is a learning curve to make the most out of it. However, if you take a lot of measurements, you will dramatically improve your productivity once you are over the learning process.

Why will you love it?

  • Bluetooth:

The Bluetooth feature will dramatically increase your measuring speed once you learn how to use it effectively.

  • Accuracy:

You will find a lot of low-quality products claiming a certain accuracy but not being able to deliver it consistently. With the Leica Disto D2, however, you get the accuracy of high-end products.

  • Backlit screen:

A very useful feature that makes reading much easier, especially in conditions of low or no light.

Is this for you?

This is for Architects with the following characteristics

  • Will use the Bluetooth functionality
  • Only work on interiors

Where can you use it?

  • In almost any project due to its range (330 feet (100 metres)).
  • In interiors only.
  • To calculate areas to give a quick estimation of costs.
  • To calculate unreachable points through Pythagoras.
  • To accurately calculate diagonals thanks to its intelligent end piece. For how this works, please see the video on this link.
