Another acquisition by Autodesk. “Autodesk, Inc. has completed the acquisition of technology assets from Colorado-based Get The Point, LLC and today introduced Autodesk Point Layout, new software for layout at construction sites… Autodesk Point Layout automatically creates points from BIM and CAD models within Autodesk Revit, Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Navisworks software. The point data drives robotic total station hardware, such as Topcon’s line of positioning systems and related hand-held devices or tablets, to give contractors and sub-contractors laser-guided pinpoint accuracy for the placement and verification of building elements.” See more on this Beyond Design blog post.
Autodesk Point Layout is available now 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.
