Topcon says its new BIM solution – the LN-100 – is the world’s first 3D positioning system designed specifically for construction layout. The LN-100 is said to seamlessly integrate project data flow ?from design to the field, with simple design and ease of operation that strips away the complexity associated with advanced surveying instruments.
Topcon’s MAGNET suite of software solutions is designed to simplify workflow. MAGNET Field Layout and Office Layout are specifically designed and configured to meet the needs of construction layout and BIM applications.
All that’s required to begin operation is to place the LN-100 on a tripod, column or on the ground – and press one button. The unit self-levels and an operator just has to turn on the wireless controller and get to work.
With the wireless controller, an operator can call up simple point layout or CAD drawings anywhere on a site. Its operating range allows it to cover a 200 meter (650 ft.) diameter area.
