Increasing Construction Layout Accuracy By Means of Coordinated Real Time BIM Models

Autodesk’s BIM 360 Layout promises to enhance the construction layout process by providing contractors access to coordinated real-time point models in the field via their cloud-connected smart devices.

The software permits users to upload models with layout points directly onto their iPads from other Autodesk offerings, such as AutoCAD, Revit and Navisworks. It then improves the accuracy and efficiency of construction layout tasks by connecting these iPads to a total station, then making it easier to locate and verify point locations on the building site itself.

Cloud connectivity ensures that the coordinated models are kept both up-to-date and accessible for all project team members during the process of layout in the field, ensuring accuracy and the avoidance of errors.

The software provides real-time model navigation for performing a range of project functions, including layout, quality assurance and control, and as built-collection on the job site.
