Trimble's Free Point Software, for Construction Projects, To Create Field Points
Sunnyvale,CA: Trimble announced at World of Concrete in Las Vegas about its new Field Points software. Trimble Field Points, designed for building contractors and engineers, creates 2D and 3D field or layout points in Computer Aided Design (CAD) models or Building Information Modeling (BIM) files.
The software increases productivity by quickly and accurately matching the digital design on the physical construction site while reducing manual errors. It also ensures that the systems and equipment which are involved in field layout work are accurately installed. The software provides fluid creation of field points for most construction applications including anchor bolt locations, curtain wall attachments and hanger or sleeve locations via simple, intuitive point creation workflows. Engineers or contractors can import field point data into the software for assistance with their quality assurance and quality control workflows for comparison in the model.
The software also integrates seamlessly with the Trimble Field Link construction layout software. When these two products are connected to the Trimble Robotic Total Stations, they provide the best-in-class building construction positioning system, enabling users to easily lay out their construction projects with task-based, metric-rich workflows.
According to Pat Bohle, General Manager of the MEP Division, Trimble Buildings Group, “As the industry continues to push the utilization of BIM practices for cost savings and project data collaboration, connecting the digital model to the field is a crucial piece of this process. Trimble Field Points provides a cost effective tool for contractors and those involved in the building construction process, while eliminating the need of extra steps through its integration with a variety of BIM tools."
Trimble’s Field Points software is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2014.
