Topcon Positioning Group introduced a new BIM solution known as LN-100. It is the first ever 3D positioning system that consists of the GLS-2000 laser scanner, IS series of imaging robotic stations and the DS series of standard robotic stations providing superior construction layout.
From the design to jobsite, the project data can be incorporated and run consistently through LN-100. It offers straightforward operation which results in eliminating the intimidation factor and diminishing the learning curve in executing construction layout works. The product is very useful for survey engineers.
With its uncomplicated workflow, the product can be easily incorporated with Topcon’s MAGNET series of software solutions. MAGNET Field Layout and Office Layout are exclusively intended and constructed to fulfill the requirements of construction layout and BIM uses.
In order to utilize it, just position the LN-100 anyplace on a project site, ranging from a tripod, column or the ground, and press one button.

Through a wireless controller, an operator will be able to stimulate simple point layout or CAD drawings anywhere on a site. Show the design point or line for being asserted, just touch it, and the LN-100 laser instantly indicate the proper location.
The LN-100 can also lock onto a prism and direct an operator to the next design points. The users can cover a 200 meter (650 feet) diameter region with its operating range. The new 3D positioning system can provide huge benefits toward a BIM projects. By combining Topcon’s exclusive laser and robotic total station methods, it offers an extremely productive system that involves design and layout operations.
This user-friendly product empowers customers to preserve utmost preciseness and performance toward all building facets like building infrastructure, electrical, plumbing, foundation and footings, walls, ceilings, HVAC, underground utilities or basic landscaping on any job site.
