Trimble Introduces New Field Layout Software Suite

Featuring task-based workflows, customizable views and a new user-interface designed to optimize the information presented, Trimble Field Link extends field layout capabilities. In addition to the advancements made in performing layout specific tasks, Trimble Field link adds reporting routines to detail layout productivity as well as the ability to document existing site conditions for RFI’s. Contractors working with Building Information Modeling (BIM) can now view 3D DWG and DXF design models in the field with Trimble Field Link, allowing field crews to make more informed decisions when problems arise.

Trimble Field Link was designed for the Trimble Tablet to take advantage of a larger touch screen, additional processing power, increased storage, Internet connectivity options and a full version of Windows 7. As a fully-functioning PC, the Trimble Tablet provides contractors the flexibility to run additional business applications.

“With the Trimble Tablet, we saw an opportunity to take our field layout software to the next level,” said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble’s Building Construction Division. “By enabling functionality such as job-level productivity reporting and the ability to review construction data in a 3D environment while in the field, the new solution empowers field crews with more information for timely decision making and increased efficiency.”

While the base features of Trimble Field Link are the same for MEP, concrete, steel trades and general contractors, Trimble has developed modules with feature-sets designed specifically for each contractor type. Trimble Field Link for MEP includes a Visual Layout module for automated layout and identification of indoor points associated with MEP systems. For concrete, steel trades and general contractors, Trimble Field Link for Structures contains modules that allow the creation of points from CAD files and the measurement of line work. 

Trimble Field Link is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2011 through Trimble’s Authorized Distributors of layout solutions for MEP and Structures contractors.
