Field Layout, QAQC, As-Built

“We went from 30% of your sleeves being in the wrong spot or not even being into the slab to installing over 11k sleeves and only missing one or two.”

 – Cody Taylor, Regional Director VDC; Rogers-O’Brien Construction

No longer use tape measures, chalk lines, and strings! Leverage your BIM or CAD files for construction layout with Autodesk® Point Layout. APL is point creation construction software that improves productivity and efficiency among contractors and subcontractors. APL focuses directly on improving current layout, QAQC, and as-built processes. It supports 2D and 3D workflows as it gives the ability to directly place, import, or export points in Autodesk AutoCAD®, Autodesk Revit®, or Autodesk Navisworks® Manage. Points are placed and easily exported directly to a Data Collector which communicates with the Robotic Total Station.

Want to access these points via your iPad? What if your iPad could control the total station? BIM 360 Layout is an iPad application that leverages Autodesk BIM 360 Glue to access and manage your project models for field layout, QAQC, and as-builts. Your iPad, in turn, communicates and drives the Robotic Total Station. Check out this video of BIM 360 Layout in action!

Whether you use a proprietary data collector provided with a robotic total station or your iPad, this solution speeds up the current layout, QAQC, or as-built process, reduces errors and rework, thus saving time and money.
