Have you noticed in the AEC industry that a lot of interest has been generated around laser scanning? The reason for this is that scanning provides a fast and accurate way to collect large amounts of measurement data to be used in both the design and construction process.
Benchmarking with Trimble Field Link and the Robotic Total Station
Your Robotic total station helps you to lay out points that the CAD/Coordination Department has assigned to 3D coordinated objects you are responsible for laying out on the project. Some points may have different elevation relationships to each other and also the level you are trying to lay them out on.
Benchmarking is a way that you can control how you lay out your work. You can also use it to your advantage to manipulate
Creating Point Data for the Trimble MEP Robotic Total Station Using PipeDesigner 3D
In your BIM process, you spend a lot of time modeling geometry, coordinating your design with other trades and generating construction drawings for field layout. If you are like many other contractors, you would like to be able to relay the accuracy of your CAD model to the field without doing additional work in that process.
