AU sponsor Topcon


Topcon is a leading manufacturer of precision 3D measurement and positioning technologies for the global surveying, BIM, mapping and GIS, civil engineering, construction, mobile control, and asset management markets. 

 Download Topcon's AU promo flyer (pdf – 778Kb)

Topcon and Autodesk collaborate on solutions specifically tailored for AEC applications. One example is the combination of the Topcon Layout Navigator (LN-100) 3D BIM layout tool and Autodesk’s software and cloud services that accurately create points in a 2D or 3D environment, position control, and layout those points with high accuracy on any construction site. As-built data from the field can be easily captured from the LN-100 3D BIM layout tool and then uploaded back into the design model via Autodesk’s cloud services for quality assurance and quality control review. Additionally, Topcon 3D scanning hardware supports Autodesk’s reality capture workflows, creating yet another integrated field-to-office solution.

The LN-100 3D BIM layout tool is a turnkey, layout solution that is easy-to-use and less than one-half of the cost of using more complex robotic optical instruments currently available to contractors today. The LN-100 instrument was specifically designed in collaboration with Autodesk to integrate with Autodesk cloud services, providing model-based layout as a means to more easily connect the office with field-level execution.

In 2013, the companies announced a direct cloud-link between the Topcon MAGNET® Enterprise cloud-based service and AutoCAD WS (now AutoCAD 360), a new capability that streamlines the availability of critical field information onto mobile devices. The MAGNET integration allows field workers to automatically document their site measurements directly from Topcon devices to AutoCAD 360, creating industry standard, sharable DWGs — directly impacting quality management and coordination capabilities.

The partnership between Topcon and Autodesk is designed to allow building and civil infrastructure construction customers to form a tighter, more seamless connection between the office and the field, increasing on-site worker productivity as well as improving overall quality, and field safety.

Visit Topcon at Booth 129.
