Autodesk Inc. has developed Point Layout software to perform layout on the construction site accurately. This software can simplify the surveying process by maintaining the perfectness of the model to the job site for contractors and subcontractors.
It applies model coordinate information at the construction site to enhance office-to-field efficiency and QA/QC, curtail rework, and improve layout productivity.
The software generates points on almost any object and export point locations to a series of robotic instruments.
The software offers the following exclusive features
Generate points: Generate points inside drawings and models produced through AutoCAD, Revit, or Navisworks software.
Export to robotic instruments: Export points from AutoCAD, Revit, or Navisworks software to a total station or other robotic instrument to keep the layout of the construction accurate.
Import field conditions: Import staked point locations back into AutoCAD, Revit, or Navisworks software to facilitate generating an as-built model for handoff.
Export to Navisworks: Export your work from AutoCAD or Revit software and import it into Navisworks software to modify your point locations throughout the coordination process.
Control points: Add, import, and export control points to your model. Control points can comprise of automatic grid intersection placement, import, and manual placement in AutoCAD and Revit software.
Coordinate systems: Include coordinate systems to your model that match the job site. This allows you to align your points with the entire construction project.
3D-model based layout: Incorporeate with the BIM 360 Layout iPad app and manage your layout from the entire model.
Compare points: Utilize imported field points with field deviation reports for QA/QC, then pass issues to BIM 360 Field software for resolution.
Slab analysis: Import field or as-built points of any surface into Revit software for deviation analysis of field against the design model.
