BIM 360 Layout
The Autodesk® BIM 360™ Layout app for Android and BIM 360™ Document Management web service provide construction contractors the ability to connect the coordinated model to the field layout process, helping to increase job site productivity while improving the accuracy of staked or installed building components.
The app synchronizes with your BIM 360 account to download and upload project models with point location coordinate detail. Once paired with a robotic total station or GPS device, BIM 360 Layout on your Android™ tablet guides the user to the exact location of those points on the job site for field staking, verification and as-built collection.
NOTE: The BIM 360 Layout app is currently directly compatible with the following positioning hardware:
Topcon LN100W(BT model), LN-150, DS200, PS, GT Series; Sokkia SX, IX Series
Leica iCON 50/60/70/80 and iCT30; Viva/Nova TS/MS Series
GPS: NMEA-Supported External RTK GPS/GNSS Devices & GPS/GNSS Enabled (Internal) Tablets
NOTE: The BIM 360 Layout app requires a subscription to BIM 360 Coordinate Package.

Share and Layout
◆ Share and layout points from within the BIM 360 Layout app with Revit, AutoCAD (including verticals), Navisworks, IFC Models and more
◆ Models and point data can be downloaded for offline use in the field. Ensure your project team works from the latest project data
◆ Upload models with layout points created in Autodesk Point Layout directly from AutoCAD, Revit and Navisworks into BIM360 Document Management
◆ Import Autodesk Point Layout Points, CSV files/Survey control and sync with the BIM 360 Layout Android app
Robotic Total Station Controller
◆ Seamless connection to total station hardware with automated direct Bluetooth communications
◆ Control the total station remotely utilizing guide and point-turn functionality
◆ Step-by-step, guided total station set-up routines for Known Point and Resection including help guides for each step
User Interface and Navigation
◆ Select levels and filter both points and the model, then navigate directly to that location in 3D model view
◆ Automatically sorted by nearest point routine as the user walks the jobsite to improve efficiency
◆ Optimized views to see total station, prism, selected point and auto-zoom 2D & 3D viewing modes when nearing a point
◆ Real-time model navigation for conducting layout, QA/QC and as-builting on the job site.
◆ Line Offsets Feature to create a line between two points and stake along and offset from that line
◆ 'Box Around Point' tool to create a custom section box around a point in both 2D/3D
Requirements: Compatible with Android Web GL 5.0 or later.
