    It's time to leave your tape measure in the truck. Do you want to make the leap and lay out directly from your model in the field? What are the software workflows? How do you set up a Revit model for use with a civil or local coordinate system? What are the benefits of using Point Layout software in the field? We'll cover how to work with Point Layout in Revit software, BIM 360 Glue software, BIM 360 Layout iPad app, and your robotic total station. See live demonstrations of the software on real-world projects, and hear discussion of the processes involved in construction field layout. We'll be working with subcontractors and their models, and assisting their field-layout processes.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to use Point Layout with your Revit model to set up coordinate systems and create points for layout
    • Understand what hardware and tools are required for construction field layout
    • Learn how to round-trip points from the model to the field with BIM 360 Glue and BIM 360 Layout
    • Understand how to work with your surveyor and project control points
