Full-featured estimating software

  • Auto-fitting generation

    Fittings are automatically generated while touching points along the route line in OnScreen View, using rule-sets to make decisions along the way. Our product greatly reduces takeoff time with automation.

    Whether you're preparing value engineering options to save the customer time and construction costs or budgeting conceptual estimates, Trimble AutoBid Mechanical gives you the competitive advantage.

  • Custom exports

    Create an export report of material costs, labor hours, and costs by different breakdowns that can be directly imported into accounting or project scheduling software.

  • Rapid reports

    Summarize and customize data in a variety of configurations using Excel-based reports.

  • PipeDesigner 3D® integration

    Assemble the associated material and labor costs without quantifying them in takeoff by exporting the piping model directly into Trimble AutoBid Mechanical.

  • Pricing services

    Maintain current material pricing in your database using a live link for pricing services such as TRA-SER®, Harrison Publishing CINX and allpri$er.
