    Even with the enhancements of building information modeling (BIM) workflows, the estimators have struggled to take off quantities accurately due to the lack of "information" in the BIM data. Add to that the complexity of combining 3D takeoffs with 2D drawings, and the estimators have a never-ending nightmare. The result is either not winning the job, or winning with not much profit. This is where Autodesk Takeoff—the cloud-based 2D and 3D quantity takeoff (QTO) tool from Autodesk Construction Cloud—is proving to be a gamechanger. With the industry-leading, automated, 3D takeoff capabilities combined with easy-to-use 2D takeoff tools, Autodesk Takeoff allows estimators to generate accurate bids and win more jobs. This class will focus on showing the capabilities of the connected takeoff process using the BIM data hosted on the Autodesk Construction Cloud project. You’ll learn about the automated 3D takeoffs and how to combine them with the customizable 2D takeoffs to generate accurate bids. You’ll also learn how to review changes in design and update your takeoffs.
