|LIVERMORE, Calif., USA/ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, The Netherlands — September 14, 2016 — Sokkia announces its new iX robotic total station series’ compatibility with the Autodesk BIM 360 Layoutapplication.|
BIM 360 Layout is designed to provide vertical construction contractors the ability to connect the coordinated model to the field layout process — helping to increase job site productivity, while improving the accuracy of staked or installed building components.
“We are committed to the interoperability between our products and Autodesk software making workflows increasingly simple for common customers,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. “Now operators taking advantage of the iX series’ smoothest and most accurate prism tracking ability can also layout or QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) with the BIM 360 Layout app.”
