At the World of Concrete exposition in Las Vegas, NV, Topcon Positioning Group announces a new BIM solution – the LN-100 – the world’s first 3D positioning system designed specifically for construction layout.
Topcon’s LN-100 introduces seamless integration and flow of project data from the design to the field.
The simple design and ease of operation strips away the complexity associated with advanced surveying instruments. The workflow is simplified with the seamless integration of the LN-100 with Topcon’s MAGNETsuite of software solutions. 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.
