Further Cooperation Between Leica and Autodesk in Building Construction

Leica Geosystems has announced further cooperation with Autodesk to connect the latest robotic total stations for construction, the Leica iCON iCR70 and iCR80, with the Autodesk BIM 360 layout mobile app, an industry construction management platform. The continued collaboration between the two organisations centres around the expanding role of building information modelling (BIM) in construction. This latest effort creates a seamless workflow, sending positions from the robotic total stations to the mobile app to compare design data, increasing efficiency and productivity from field to office. With the integration to the iCR70 and iCR80 robotic total stations, BIM 360 Layout for... (read more)

Increasing Information in Building Models

New Technology Can Significantly Improve BIM
Since the advent of building information modelling (BIM) software in the early 2000s, 3D modelling has significantly improved building design. With regular updates, BIM can also ensure that, during construction, the work progresses according to the design. In practice, however, BIM usually stops once construction starts. This can mostly be attributed to the complexity and cost of gathering accurate and current data needed to update the digital models. The German firm NavVis GmbH is a Munich-based start-up that has developed technology which overcomes these barriers by reducing the cost and increasing the efficiency of capturing and comparing data of physical...
