Making A List: Unlocking The Power Of Points Manager In Trimble Field Link

Making A List

Today’s powerful field computers, such as the Trimble Kenai, offer amazing capabilities when it comes to viewing models and linework on the job site. It’s undeniable that there is real benefit to being able to push in and out of 3D geometry and understand where elements and points reside. But sometimes, you just need to have a list in front of you.

With the Points Manager within Trimble Field Link, you are presented with the most simplistic and straightforward organization of your dataset. You have a list of points, and you can navigate to them for layout or QA/QC. This method of onsite navigation is preferable when you’re on a large project, or you are working with one particular discipline or system within a larger points data set.

Points Manager allows you to quickly organize and filter your points right there in the field, showing you only the points that you want to see. These filters easily match the project and plan parameters, so you can sort by layer, by level, or any other combination. This way, you can focus on the work you have to do, without scrolling or panning around the site.

Points Manager is included within the 3D Feature Pack of Trimble Field Link. To learn more, or to see this feature first-hand on your project, simply click the link below, or contact your BuildingPoint representative today.

TFL : Built Just For You

TFL : Built Just For You

Construction is challengingly unique. You deserve a field software solution that is engineered to perfectly complement and enhance your existing processes and workflows. With Trimble Field Link, you can unlock the full power of Trimble precision layout solutions on your project.

The actual process of laying out a point is the same regardless of whether you’re installing a stake, laying out a road, or marking hangers. Precision measurement remains the same. Measuring the distance and angle from a known point to a new location is the reality of any point location, regardless of discipline. But while the math is the same, the similarities stop there. Each industry maintains unique terms processes that surround the entire points layout process. Within the building construction industry, this translates into a workflow that is focused on the complexities of bringing a multitude of points within the confines of single project. Trimble Field Link is built for this reality.

With Trimble Field Link (TFL) contractors experience a workflow that is construction-based, from beginning to end. Centered on the variety of tasks layout professionals perform each and every day, these capabilities have been streamlined to provide the information required, while minimizing non-essential data. This discipline ensures that TFL users get up to speed quickly and easily, reducing the learning curve. Even new users, without significant experience with robotic total stations and GNSS solutions find the process to be intuitive and straightforward.

The fact that these solutions provide a simple and easy-to-use end user experience can sometimes obscure the relative power of Trimble Field Link. As a next-generation layout platform, TFL can handle even the most complex and demanding models and linework with ease. Field offsets, user created points, and multiple systems and layers can easily be managed right within the tablet. This powerful capability empowers field users to complete layout and QA/QC tasks in a fraction of the time on complicated designs and project requirements.

Trimble Field Link is the industry’s most powerful and intuitive field software. Simply put, general and trades contractors can leverage a common platform to ensure that accuracy and efficiency are achieved at every stage of the construction process.
