Topcon announces upcoming MAGNET Enterprise release including Autodesk BIM 360 integration
LIVERMORE, Calif., U.S – January 23, 2018 – Topcon Positioning Group announces an update to its MAGNET® Enterprise software system that will expand integration with Autodesk solutions with a new Autodesk BIM 360 cloud connection.
The upcoming integration with BIM 360 is designed to allow MAGNET Enterprise operators to manage 2D plans, 3D models, and any other project documents in the BIM 360 Docs or Autodesk A360 Drive environments. The software is designed to streamline document management bi-directionally between the field and office and provide a dedicated location for sharing and saving the most updated project files.
“The BIM 360 integration will allow construction teams to perform field layout from building plans stored in the Autodesk cloud or collect survey and positioning data that can be directly uploaded to BIM 360 Docs,” said David Ahl, director of software product management. “Additionally, machine automation users can access Autodesk documents through Enterprise and Sitelink3D.”
“The cloud connectivity is another example of Topcon and Autodesk continuing to work together to provide our users the most concise and succinct workflow through collaboration and commitment to openness in our software,” said Ahl.
The software is expected for release in February of this year.
