Software suite optimises workflow 

July 3rd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Topcon released Magnet 5, which includes upgrades to the suite’s Field, Office and Enterprise applications. New flexible display options help Magnet Field operators save time switching between screens. They can also select and stake surfaces, and drive survey sessions directly from the map. The screen now includes a configurable favourites toolbar and additional customisable data labels. Furthermore, operators can view GNSS status when the controller is connected to a total station in Hybrid mode, and show offsets as a visual reference when staking roads and lines. Improvements also include new vertical construction capabilities such as reflectorless layout within a building. This update features even more integration, including filtering and editing capabilities to bring Autodesk and Bentley design files to the office or directly to field software. Updates to Enterprise now include cloud connection to Autodesk BIM 360 and Bentley ProjectWise as well as unlimited project file storage. Additions to Magnet Office include new advanced corridor functionalities for machine control file prep, mass haul application improvements, and an integration of BIM for infrastructure features.
