Attendees to get hands on with new dedicated 3D layout tool for buildings, foundations, structures, HVAC, and general site layout.
Topcon Positioning Group is embarking on a tour of the US and Canada to give construction professionals the chance to get hands on with its new LN-100 Layout Navigator. The one-operator system, which blends Topcon’s self-levelling laser and robotic total station technologies, is designed to offer a new way to perform construction and BIM layout functions.
“Whether it’s traditional construction, complex landscape layout, or quickly checking existing stakeout locations on a project — the LN-100 allows an operator to use the simplicity of a self-leveling laser and combine it with a reliable 3D layout technology to increase productivity on a job site,” said Brice Walker, vice president of survey sales. “These seminars break down the basics of using the LN-100 and demonstrate the simplicity it offers to every day users on job sites.”
The program is divided into two free half-day sessions that include lunch, with continuing education credits available. The second day focuses on advanced workflow techniques, with incorporation of Autodesk Point Layout in Revit, AutoCAD and Navisworks for model-based job site layout, as well as quality assurance and quality control using the latest technology.
Nine cities remain on the tour with stops in Atlanta, Georgia on May 20 and 21 followed by Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Columbus, Ohio; Chicago, Illinois; Phoenix, Arizona; Vancouver, British Columbia; and Portland, Oregon.
