Point Layout can also instantly and precisely find out hangers utilized to support complicated , pre-assembled duct work and piping in a concrete slab. General contractors will be able to apply the software to investigate work from subcontractors towards their quality control process. Data can also be relayed from the total station back into the model to capture and maintain real-world conditions.
Availability: Autodesk Point Layout is accessibles in English in the following countries: the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. It runs in conjunction with the following Autodesk families of products: AutoCAD products 2011-2014 (including AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD MEP); Revit products 2011-2014 (including Revit Structure, Revit Architecture, Revit MEP); or Navisworks Simulate or Manage 2011-2014.

Autodesk, Inc. acquired the technology asset from Colorado-based Get The Point, LLC and just released a new software known as Autodesk Point Layout. The software is ideal for creating layout at construction sites as well as extending the BIM application in the construction industry from the initial stages of design throughout the project delivery and building operations.
Autodesk Point Layout mechanically generates points from BIM and CAD models within Autodesk Revit, Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Navisworks software. The contractors as well as sub-contractors can obtain laser-based pinpoint exactness to place and evaluate the building components with robotic total station hardware like Topcon's line of positioning systems and connected handheld devices or tablets.
The contractors can get rid of decade long manual layout system as Point Layout develop more precise building designs and instantly brought it to the construction site. It will result in superior field accuracy and productivity. The construction process will be more faster and will be finished on time and within budget.
Autodesk Point Layout is compatible with the cloud-based Autodesk BIM 360 portfolio for field management and coordination to enhance the productivity in construction sectors
Autodesk Point Layout can connect the digital BIM model to the construction site and increase efficiency and preciseness on the jobsite all phases of the construction workflow. The software make huge savings in layout time and cost as well as offers superior quality work with fewer manpower.
Recently PCL applied Point Layout on a construction project and benefitted to attain 27% reduction in waste.
By combining GPS, laser-powered optics, wireless communications and BIM, Point Layout can efficiently analyze field placements to accurate points for construction elements like foundation corners and concrete-to-steel framing interfaces on the jobsite.
