A new collaboration between Autodesk and Leica Geosystems offers benefits for data sharing
Leica Geosystems has announced further cooperation with Autodesk to streamline construction documentation. The move will offer streamlined communications and collaboration tools. This has been achieved by integrating the field software Leica Captivate and iCON with Autodesk BIM 360.
The development comes in response to the increasing complexity of construction projects and massive quantities of information generated. Interoperability with various information systems and industry standards is now a requirement for project success. The firms say that this move allows professionals to implement streamlined workflows based on reliable, high-accuracy data and workable 3D models.
Streamlining construction workflow helps to optimise efficiency and increase transparency on the jobsite and in the office. By connecting Autodesk BIM 360, a leading construction management platform, with Captivate and iCON field software, customers will be able to create seamless workflows between office and field.
This collaboration will allow connectivity to Autodesk BIM 360 for Captivate and iCON and will also allow data exchange via cloud-based services between office and field. In addition it allows straightforward data flow from point creation in the design to construction layout on site to validation back in the office and DWG support for Captivate and iCON.
