Trimble Point Creator for CAD and Revit

Trimble made big news last week with their pending acquisition of SketchUp from Google. Here's a little something from Trimble for Revit users...

Trimble® Point Creator for CAD and Revit® (TPC) was designed for the engineer or building construction contractor utilizing Revit or CAD and needing the ability to easily create 2D and 3D field points within their preferred design file. With the continued push of utilizing BIM practices for cost savings, overall efficiency, and project data collaboration, TPC for CAD and Revit is the solution.

Working as a plugin within CAD and Revit, Trimble Point Creator provides fluid creation of field points for such objects as anchor bolt locations, curtain wall attachments, and hanger or sleeve locations via intuitive, auto-insert point creation wizards. These point creation wizards allow for faster implementation and utilization throughout any organization already familiar with CAD or Revit design platforms.

Once points are created within TPC, they can be easily exported to Trimble Construction Layout Solutions like Trimble® Field Link for easy stake-out in the field. This connection allows users to bridge the gap between the design process and work executed in the field while maintaining connections to existing BIM workflows.

Uniquely Designed for Contractors, Engineers, & Architects

Regardless of your discipline or role as a CAD and/or Revit user within a building construction project, Trimble Point Creator for CAD and Revit offers a robust and familiar environment with the following unique features:
  • Work natively in Revit and popular CAD platforms (AutoCAD, Bricscad, and ZWcad)
  • Easy to use Point Creation Wizards for point placement in 2D and 3D files
  • Export to Trimble Construction Layout Solutions
  • Volume Calculation wizard with integrated 3D viewer allowing the user to view the DTM without switching over to ACAD
  • Custom branded reporting capabilities

There's more information available on the Trimble website.
