On-Screen View (OSV) Takeoff
Harness all the power of On-Screen View. Import electronic drawings directly into Trimble AutoBid Mechanical to display them on-screen to perform takeoff, while creating an audit trail of connected items. The electronic workflow emulates marking up your paper drawings with highlighter and pen. No more bulky paper drawings or digitizer tables needed!
As you take off a pipe using On-Screen View, AutoBid® Mechanical automatically inserts the correct fittings and hangers per your specifications - no wrong fittings, no omissions, no mistakes.
Give You and Your Teams the Competitive Advantage
Specifications are the heartbeat of AutoBid Mechanical. Items listed in the audit trail are generic in nature until the specification you’ve chosen is applied. Allow changes such as addendums or value engineering to be accomplished extremely fast! AutoBid Mechanical ships complete with the most commonly used specifications.

Box in an area on the On-Screen View to produce a listing of the associated material and labor hours. This popular feature will allow you to very quickly produce daily work packages with all the associated costs. Your project manager will love this feature!
