Carlson Takeoff R7 Just Released

In its embedded AutoCAD version, Takeoff R7 gives users the ability to directly read and write the latest AutoCAD DWG-drawing file format. The software provides the ability to estimate and report cut/fill quantities, subgrade materials, topsoil removal/replacement, overexcavation, trenching, and strata calculations from paper, CAD, or PDF formats. Road quantities can be determined from cross-sections or by road design built from vertical profile and typical template information.

Carlson Takeoff R7 also provides data prep capabilities for layout and the ability to create 3D models for machine control in the native Topcon®, Trimble®, Leica® or Carlson format.

Updates to Takeoff R7 include:

  • New ability to draw trench lines in 3D for visualization;
  • More ways to work with Google Earth with support for text, image and solid entities and added settings for transparency of data;
  • Improvements for importing raster images with new raster to text functions; and
  • Improvements to digitizing for cross sections and profiles.

In addition, the Takeoff R7 release gives estimators the ability to view their design in 3D and CAD at the same time.  According to Todd Carlson, product manager for Takeoff, this means they will be able to check their model and adjust the drawing without leaving the 3D viewer, allowing for dynamic 3D editing.

Carlson Takeoff R7 is the embedded AutoCAD version and includes all of the same ingredients of the new Carlson Takeoff Suite, which works on AutoCAD, versions 2004 to 2014, and comes with IntelliCAD® 7.2 built in. The Carlson Takeoff Suite is comprised of new modules Carlson CADnet, Carlson Trench, and Carlson GeoTech combined with the 2014 version of Carlson Construction. All are fully integrated with Carlson Civil and Hydrology to meet the variety of customers’ needs.

“Constantly improved over its 10 years of development, Takeoff R7 answers the diverse needs of construction estimators and model builders who are looking for a comprehensive product,” adds Carlson.
